  • To many ads even if you have a paid subscription

    By yancarlo rivera

    By Oh C'mon!!
    I have been trying to cancel my subscription for months. Multiple emails and call to customer service with perpetual holds. Just don't!
  • App not Fully Synced to Apple Accounts?

    By Annh89
    I am a subscriber via iTunes. I am able to access the app and read all the articles in the app. But the app also doesn’t seem to (fully) think I have an account—the articles are open to me but I don’t show as a logged in user (if I created a unique password I don’t remember it and reluctant to try to create a new one as it might break the syncing that does seem to be working). What’s annoying is that when I read articles outside the app (using Google News and/or Chrome, for example) it’s assumed I don’t have an account and I have an article limit. I’m invited to set up an account through Google.
  • Paying customer blocked by paywall. Customer support is abysmal

    By Dapertutto
    Update 3/14/20: Reading up on COVID-19 would sure be great right now, but still blocked by paywall and NO REPONSE from customer support. Update 3/3/20: Well, the login problems have returned! I’m still a paying subscriber and didn’t change anything with my account but once again I’m hitting the LA Times website paywall. This effects the app because some of their articles link to content loaded via their website. FIX THIS LA TIMES! I want to support local journalism but you’re giving me many reasons to cancel. —- Update: After months of being blocked from the Times website I solved the problem myself. Their tech support is terrible and couldn’t figure it out. If you pay via the app but keep hitting the paywall on their website, it could be because your email was previously in their system from a past subscription. I had a past subscription from years ago that used the same email as my current Apple store email. Viewing things on the app was fine but I think their website kept defaulting to that old expired account. So my fix was to log into the website with my email, change that to a different email, then go back to the app and register a new account using my current email. After logging in and out a bunch of times that seems to have done the trick! Months of back and forth with their customer/tech service reps and I finally figure it out on my own. Thanks a lot LA Times. I believe in your journalistic mission but your customer service is awful! +++ I am a paying subscriber and yet have been blocked from viewing the LA Times via their website since November 2019. I have exhausted all of their “customer support” mechanisms and no one can fix the problem. Their overseas support staff simply ask for the same information repeatedly and say someone from their tech support team will contact me. Well, it’s been since November. Also, what I’ve learned is that every time I speak or email with someone the can’t reference previous support tickets, so basically it’s like being stuck in a repetitive cycle of asking for my username, password, logging in and out, sending screenshots proving payment, etc. I subscribed to the LA Times to support my local newspaper but this is just ridiculous. I’ve literally wasted hours email and calling their “Customer Advocacy Group.” In one of their emails they even mistakenly called their own paper the “San Diego Union Tribune.” Anyhow, support local journalism but good luck if you ever have any problems with your digital subscription!
  • subscription and email non-functional

    By Meillassoux
    decent paper, deeply bad app. why does this exist?
  • No longer supports VPN

    By dankencity
    Very disappointed I can longer use the app on a VPN—even with a paid subscription. I hope this is just a glitch and fixed soon...
  • My Favorite App.

    By Daddy John Chavez, Jr.
    Love, Just Love this L.A. Times app. Can read the E Newspaper much easier now. Has all kinds of informative sections I can enjoy.
  • There’s a glitch

    By oaxaca213
    Whenever I scroll through an article it automatically pauses anything I’m listening to.
  • Much Better

    By Mark Lucaswalker
    This app has improved ten fold since the last time I used it, which was when it was still owned by Tribune. Thank you! I prefer it over Apple News (🤮). I would give the app an extra star, only if possible, if the dev team made links from email newsletters... wait for it... auto open the LAT app! And not Safari :/ 5 stars!
  • Feedback

    By Highflyinvi
    Dear LA Times, Please add a feature where I can tap on home and it takes me back up to top of the page, like the NYTimes app. Also, I don’t see the point of the eNewspaper. Thank you.
