  • Autoplay video ads

    The video ads that constantly pop-up are beyond annoying. There should be an autoplay-off option. Not sure how much longer I’ll continue subscribing. It’s mostly biased AP and WaPo news anyway. The comics I can get for free elsewhere.
  • App has no consistency

    The FTU app crashes. A lot. A. Lot. Terrible. Not worth the trouble. Why bother paying a monthly subscription for something I can access occasionally? Hmm..... Terrible.
  • Delete!

    Just deleted the app. Again. The problem? I enjoy a morning paper and wish to see local news (as limited as it is in the Times-Union). However, I’m sick of the pop up adds hijacking the page. Solution-go offline. Unfortunately the ability to go offline is limited to 2-3 months before breaking. The only option is to delete the app, reload it, and start over. One of these days, the reload might not happen.
  • Going offline issues

    By even all nicknames is taken!
    I have been having problems with deleting the papers I have gone offline with. The app is telling me I have reached the downloaded limit, then asks if I want to delete oldest to which I answer yes. I then try to download today’s & it tells me the same thing. I have deleted Sept. 11th & 9th multiple times & they keep showing as downloaded. Help!

    This app has crashed. It continually returns to the login page, even though I’m putting in my correct user name & password. I’m unable to get any support or help from this company. Frustrated & upset!

    Why did they change this site? We have trouble downloading, and it is never available until after 8:00am. Please find a way to make this better.
  • Sick of this app

    I have had enough. The changes that have been made in the last couple years have really irritated me. When it first came out it was great to use and I had a hard time losing my paper copy. Now I am so sick of this app I would welcome it back. The last straw for me is the current issue I have, constant and I mean constant pop ups of video ads. Yes, they come up every couple minutes, so esteems seconds and require me to X out. This happens maybe 10 or more times while reading the paper. I have decided that when my current paid subscription expires, that’s it, I’m done and WILL NOT renew. I may even cancel early as reading the paper makes me have a bad start to my day. Additionally, the paper is so full of garbage now it’s not even worth reading. Goodbye times union..

    I don’t know what happened to this app but it is awful.I know longer can sit and read my paper with out problems. Very slow on loading and I have to wait from anywhere from page to page and section to section for the news to appear. I constantly have to hit the retry button or exit completely and return.
  • Fix your app!!!

    We have enjoyed reading the TU on our IPads for several years and suddenly the app doesn’t work right. Have to log in every morning, turn IPad off and back on several times and then the app freezes and have to do this all over again. What happened? This is very aggravating.
  • Used to be good

    They won’t leave it alone. Used to be a really good newspaper app, that felt like reading the paper. Now, full screen advertising videos pop up seemingly at random, right in the middle of trying to read an article. Absolutely infuriating, and ruins the reader experience. Look elsewhere for a news app. As if the “print” ads aren’t enough...now this??
