Worst newspaper app of them all. 45 seconds to load to main page. Then 40 seconds to load sports section. 1:35 to try and load the headline article in the sports section...and then it crashes.....again. Bring back the simple former app. This one isn't worth the effort.
Horrible You once had the best news app out there and then in your infinite wisdom, you updated to this slow, confusing, app crashing mess you've got going on now. All in the backyard of one of the tech capitals of the world. Horrible!
I've shifted to reading Everett Herald Please go back to the old easy to navigate, quick loading Seattle Times.Until then I have found the Everett Herald has the regional news and is much more user friendly. KIRO7 app is also quick and easy to use for Seattle local. The developer of his Times app is just showing off the cool stuff he/she can do.
Plays loud video ads This app has recently begun playing loud video ads. They just start blaring out of the speakers, & I have not found any way to quiet them or turn them off. It's annoying, because you start reading The Seattle Times in a quiet place, and you don't want your phone to start playing sound.
Terrible The old version was simple and easily laid out. This version has an odd layout and crap ads and syndicated news pieces mixed in the local news pieces. Junk.
Loading Content... Get used to it, you'll see it constantly. App is very slow. Every article gives you 15+ seconds of "Loading Content..."
