    Ads are okay. Popping up full-screen video ads while browsing is jarring and bad kharma.
  • Local tv lisings

    This app has a section that is in sports. It says it’s a listing of all local TV sports programs. But it does not work. I have called the Seattle Times to complain and they blame it on Apple.

  • Offer a yearly option

    Maybe you'll get more subscribers if you start offering a $99.99 per year option along with the $9.99 per month option. That would be me!
  • Long articles won't scroll past a certain point

    On my iPhone X, long articles are cut off at a certain point midway through. I can't scroll past. VERY annoying. If I really want to read the rest of the article, I have to look it up in the browser. Please fix!!
  • Doesn’t recognize my login

    I can log in on the website, and even on the print edition. But this app says my password is invalid. I thought it was an issue with the iTunes Store, so I canceled that subscription and then signed up through the Seattle Times. My login worked last week, but again this morning, won’t let me in. Very frustrating.
  • Requires Subscription

    No access to articles unless you pay $9.99 per month. It's just not that good of a news source to pay that much. Good bye Seattle Times, you've lost a 55 year subscriber.
  • Not at all convinced to continue my subscription

    I haven’t had one single day where I felt I got all round local, country and international news. I do see google and yahoo news that give me a better perspective of the world around me
  • Good enough, but a bit of a scam

    The app and its stability is pretty great, but the way they go about the articles feels a little cheap and unbecoming of the Seattle Times. I understand having to pay a subscription fee, and that’s not my beef with the app. My beef is the way they push notifications to your phone that seemingly have a full story, but then you click to open the story using one of your sixteen articles for the month just to find out the story is 1-2 paragraphs long. In fact, 1 out of every 4 articles or so is like this, and as a result makes the app feel cheap and like a money grab, especially when they’re constantly reminding you of how many you’ve read that month and then pushing you to subscribe. I enjoy a relevant, quality news organization as much as anyone, and understand the need to pay for news, but I think the non-subscription method could be fixed in order to draw in more people, people who would actually pay for the subscription at some point in time if it weren’t for the cheap, tacky feel the app gives off.
  • Left leaning newspaper

    By Paul Michael's Music
    While I like the sports coverage and to some extent the coverage of state wide news the paper is sorely lacking in balanced coverage. If the news does not fit The Seattle Times left leaning narrative it will not be covered. It is so unfortunate that so many people do not see this. PLEASE try to become more objective in your news coverage
