Really hard to like the app. The app says I do not have an Internet connection at the top 100% of the time. The articles will not load unless I click them multiple times, open/pause/close repeat repeat repeat until maybe it opens. I have wifi and 5g service in most of the twin cities and this app acts like I have wifi only capabilities. The comment section does not load when you get a reply and click on the notification, it takes me to the home screen if it loads, every time.

It's got good stories and good writers. I also like the dark mode. The behavior of the NYT to THE ATHLETIC transfer link has changed for the negative. Previous behavior opened the linked article (in The Athletic) without further clicking. Now clicking a NYT sports link opens Google Play current on The Athletic app. You have to click the Open button to get The Athletic app. The referenced NYT article is nowhere in sight. Have to search for it.
