    I read on-lines news looking for balanced content. It seems more and more even a typical non-political news story has some politics that seep in between the lines. The Times may have been left-leaning in the past but writer Skelton took care of that, and that’s OK. I’m proud to say, especially in today’s U.S., that I am a life-long Democrat. But you can’t see the real world looking for fodder that only leans in your direction. There are always at least two sides to every story. I believe the L.A. Times does a great job of trying to present balance in today’s news. With so much embarrassing outbursts and shenanigans coming out of the White House, you would think it would be a simple job to report the news with a democratic spin. But The Times seems to always attempt to ride the middle road in its reporting - Opinion section not counting! As a very young boy I delivered The Times off the back of my brother’s Chevy pickup to news racks (remember those?) and corner markets from downtown to East L.A. I am so thankful the “Paper” is still with us today. “All The News That’s Fit To Print”

    Easy to use and read. Notifications are kept to a minimum and only show news of interest to me, unlike other news apps that bombard you with constant notifications. 5/5.

    Silly title, isn’t it? I figured people might read this: As a reader of news on devices for only a year and as a homesick native, I appreciate the ready availability of access to the Los Angeles Times. Who else but someone like me, living out of state and missing my home town paper, would turn to a wonderful app like this? And not just for breaking news in politics national and local but also traffic alerts! I hadn’t known there were Metro Line tracks along the 210. I felt something akin to being there, although there may have been the automatic sympathy (Oh no!) one feels as a heretofore daily commuter in the Greater Los Angeles Area. I remember when the 210 had been proposed and approved, and was controversial due to expected segregation between “whites and blacks” in Pasadena. I read all about it in the LA Times. No one anticipated black flight, much less light rail connection. I read about those in the LA Times, too, all of controversial. I guess this is all to to say that I Heart the LA Times and its app! Thanks for reading!

    I have not been able to access my account for over a week, it tells me I am a non subscriber. I only pay for the digital subscription which is only a dollar a week, but come on guys.......fix your system. I've called customer service several times and they acknowledge they have a system problem, have no idea when it will be resolved. Maybe I will write a letter to David Lazarus, maybe he can get it fixed!!!

    I’ve lived in Los Angeles for over twenty years and subscribed in good faith as a resident - citizen - refugee of this great city only to find that 1) the la times is obnoxiously out of touch with its “readership” aka dummies like me who pay subscription rates for no real insight that can’t be gotten from other news sources, gives me certainly no voice. The times editorially and now thru the email marketing and app that automatically subscribes at way more than what you thought-I expected 9.99 but still cancelled due to bull#%* content and corporate point of view. Only to find out app sign up can’t be canceled (via same as sign up or email), but after catching that I’ve been charged $15 per month when I haven’t logged in, not accessed their site in any way in over a month - funny how their algorithms on their side don’t ever say a word about your engagement. Not what I want from my “local” paper- I’ll stick with New York Times, the Atlantic & The HOLLYWOOD Reporter, thanks Tribune for your corporate takeover of a paper that should have been the voice of the west.

    Really Buggy. On Galaxy TabA its really bad. Jumps all over the board, doesn't keep letters, fills in blanks with random letters. Really, I spend more time correcting its random entries than actually playing. Both app and device OS are UTD.

  • I just don’t use it anymore May 21, 2018

    By Real news believer
    I used to use the app constantly, even with its flaws, but as soon as they started the new format I find I don’t use it anymore and I just download the newspaper version. With big pictures it is harder to navigate to find what the important stories are. I like headlines so that can see at a glance the important news and stories and and pick from among them. The sections are on a small band at the top awkwardly listed horizontally, I don’t know if I can change the order to suit my usual preferences. The news app on my phone taking articles from multiple sources is similar in its use of pics, but much easier to use listing the four or five latest or most popular articles, but the proof is in my usage. When the change first occurred my brother railed about the new format, but I’d been such a long time user that I thought he was overreacting, but months later I just don’t use it. Send us a note if you change it. If there is a fee for it I will drop it.

    Low quality journalism. Not worth the subscription. Also they intentionally make it really hard to unsubscribe. You need to call them and then they try to offer you all those "deals".

  • LAT rising Feb 14, 2019

    By dano3006
    The LA Times was a great newspaper from the 60s through the 90s. After a period of asset stripping for nearly 20 years that nearly destroyed the paper, it is back in the hands of a beneficial owner and publisher who is hiring and enabling good journalists and the paper’s return to greatness. The paper’s app works well as an app, in that I can see all the contents, and links work well. It works on both a phone and a tablet, with good formatting of both text and graphics content. I have not been able to get my subscription to cross over from the in-app presence to being activated in a browser, but that seems to be a common problem so maybe it is a problem with Apple’s architecture and not the LAT implementation.

  • Love the newspaper format but... Jul 2, 2020

    By AlanC19
    I’ve been using the LA Times app and its sister web app for years. The newspaper-like form is like reading the regular paper but much better, especially on an iPad which brings me to a major bug that’s been in this version for months. After reading an article (clicking on it brings it up in full screen) and closing it to return to the newspaper format, the app no longer scrolls. Any articles on the lower half of the page are unreachable. Go to the next page and it scrolls fine, go back to the previous page and scrolling up and down no longer works. I would have expected this bug to have been fixed a long time ago, but updates come and go and it doesn’t get fixed :-(. Otherwise, I love this app and the newspaper.

  • Great app with some oppressive to be more user friendly. Jul 10, 2019

    By Potential awesomeness
    This review is just about the app itself rather than the content. I love how easy it is to navigate through the different sections. However there are some things that can be improved on. One is simply being able to read the article in the app rather than the article opening up safari or opening up a web browser within the app, which at times doesn’t recognize my subscription. As well the notification settings seem to be a little buggy? Sometimes I get notifications for the content I want and sometimes I don’t. But honestly this app is really great and I know it’ll get better!

  • Can’t scroll entire page after closing an article Jul 5, 2020

    By BarryJS
    When closing an article on my iPad to go back to a page I cannot scroll all the way to the bottom. This has happened with many versions, but seems to get fixed. Currently this problem has been going on for months. A work around was to swipe ahead one page and then go back. With the latest version I have to go ahead TWO pages and come back. Otherwise this is a good app for reading the paper.

  • Ex-Pat from OC in Midwest May 22, 2019

    By ExPatin Midwest
    We spent over 20 years and enjoyed the Times every day. When we moved I subscribed to the digital. Still enjoy the Times and it is a good paper, especially by today’s standards. My pet peeve is the pop up ads and ads in general-the paper is slow to load. Why not an ad free version for a few dollars more? Also, the key to providing value is to maintain a roster of great local columnists. If the Times goes that way I am gone.

  • This app has improved greatly, but still some issues Nov 20, 2018

    By iPersuade
    The resigned app is a joy to use and read, except in one area: eNewspaper navigation. It’s terrible. Rather than the text of the article scrolling, the entire article window tries to scroll and it “bounces.” Moreover, if there is an ad, you often can’t close it even if you click on the link to visit the advertised product or service. I vastly prefer reading the news on my iPhone and iPad to the physical paper or the website. I hope the developers straighten out these little friction points. My older review: I see articles in the paper that I want to read in the app and it sometimes takes a Herculean effort to find and get to them on the app (the website is basically the same in this regard). Please make it easier to find articles by organizing the information better and making navigation and search better.

    the app is okay. for some reason I can't pull up the LA Times COVID Tracker. also, for some reason the app sends me an alert every time a +90 year old actor dies. I don't care at all, and if I get one more, I'm deleting the app and cancelling my subscription

    Just a warning for everyone who wants to subscribe to the LA Times.. when you want to cancel your subscription, it's such a pain in the ass. You can't do it online. they don't respond to emails and customer service is the worst. It took 2 weeks for me to break through. There's nothing with the app (at least for me) and I enjoy reading their articles.

  • App not Fully Synced to Apple Accounts? Mar 20, 2020

    By Annh89
    I am a subscriber via iTunes. I am able to access the app and read all the articles in the app. But the app also doesn’t seem to (fully) think I have an account—the articles are open to me but I don’t show as a logged in user (if I created a unique password I don’t remember it and reluctant to try to create a new one as it might break the syncing that does seem to be working). What’s annoying is that when I read articles outside the app (using Google News and/or Chrome, for example) it’s assumed I don’t have an account and I have an article limit. I’m invited to set up an account through Google.

  • Slower than a freight train Apr 17, 2020

    By SingingGardener
    Most if these reviews are old. I'm not seeing any improvement in the app. As of April 2020 I must say this app is one of the worst newspaper apps I've used. Too bad for a big city like LA. It takes FOREVER to load a story or section of the newspaper. So frustrating. I'll give 2 stars. What good are articles of you can't read them. No, it's not my iPad or my computer. It's this app. I think it's a good paper but horrible app. Buyer beware. Not worth 7.99 a month to be such a pain to read. I'll have to expire my subscription.

  • Outdated Articles Dec 23, 2019

    By KantEven
    As the newspaper of record for the western United States, the LA Times provides high quality reporting and analysis on major national and world news, as well as stories that the big NYC and DC news organizations overlook. This app has been improved in 2019, so those stories are now easier to find and the reading environment is more enjoyable. However, the app still has two major issues. The first is that there are still too many outdated articles—some of them are months old. I would like to see all articles from the past 24 hours in each section; certainly nothing more than two days old is appropriate for a mobile app, which I expect to be current events. I withheld another star because the app is missing a couple of keys features of its major competitors (NYT, WaPo, WSJ). One, you cannot customize the menu. This isn’t a big deal, because the menu layout is easy to navigate, but it it would be a nice feature for those of us who like to see certain sections up front. Two, the app is still missing a “Today’s Paper” section. All of the other major papers have a section in the app that lists the stories in the order they appear in the paper. This feature would be much easier and faster to navigate than an e-edition, especially on a small screen. Other than these two oversights, this is a great app and content.
