I'm a paying NY Times subscriber, and the app performance on my kindle fire is terrible. You would think getting the formatting correct would be easy, but different paragraphs will repeat in random articles. Imagine you're reading a Kindle book and it would randomly show you a page you read ten minutes ago. Welcome to the future! I'll be ending my NY Times subscription primarily because of this poor support.

If you're looking for a good national newspaper app and willing to pay more for a subscription, the Wall Street Journal app on my Kindle Fire is excellent. It's still not perfect but it does let you download today's issue for offline reading. Plus it does not repeat random bits of text from the article you're reading! Amazing what a concept!

The Times is now only available with a monthly subscription. $21. This is not worth the money. An individual issue from time to time was worth the money. The app is now deleted. I am irritated about wasting my time. The Times needs to be honest about changes and so does Amazon. Amazon says you can get an individual issue but you can not.

I think I'm basically mirroring what someone else on here said: I used to buy the NY Times on my Kindle Fire on Sundays only. I found .99 to be a great bargain. Frankly, I don't have time to read it during the week. Please bring back the per issue option. I can't understand why a company would willingly turn away paying customers...it doesn't make good business sense! After my month is up, I will be uninstalling this app. It looks fine but I'm not interested in paying $20/mo for a paper I'll only read every Sunday.

This free edition is not as complete as the 99 cent product. I would rather pay a little to have the more complete edition which could be down loaded and read later when a wi-fi connection may not be available.

This is et another example of "free" Kindle Apps that are only "free" for a brief time, after which one must pay astronomical prices to "keep" them. Bah. Humbug.

This is nothing more than an advertising promotion. Not worth the download time. You get to read 3 articles from such a large publication what a joke. Then you are offered a $20 a month subscription. Download Npr news app its much better.

I used to be able to buy that day 's paper but no more! And it seems there is no way to find "today's paper" in the new app. Now the paper is a mess of information without coherent chronology which I have to subscribe to instead of being able to purchase a day at a time. The graphics are better and I think there is more content but I prefer those things that were lost.

I have purchased the Sunday NYTimes issue every week since I got a Kindle Fire. The new app does not have an optioon to buy a single issue. Big disappointment. I will switch to another Sunday newspaper probably Washington Post. I used to spend $52 a year on BYT - now $0
