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.
I want to like it... This seemingly fragile little ST app crashes several times daily when going from local news to top stories, etc. I'm using Android HTC One M9 with Marshmallow so it shouldn't be that causing the drop. Great content otherwise.
Awful Too slow. Seattle Times, get your act together. Aren't there enough techies in this town for you to pay some of them a decent wage to create a good app? If I could give it zero stars, I would.
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.
New common sense Why would the sports section be near the bottom of the page when sports articles usually dominate the top 5 articles section. Sports are more highly read than the opinionated section and all the other useless sections on the main screen.
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.
- Fixed crashes on some Samsung devices
- Other small improvements and fixes.
