  • Does not support dynamic type font on iPhone

    This is a MAJOR flaw. The font on the articles in the iPhone app is very small. iPhone has a setting called dynamic font. It means apps should use the font setting from there - especially a reading app. I am questioning my entire reason to subscribe to the electronics/mobile newspaper. Content that I see on Seattle Times Facebook is not on the app. Breaking news is updated after every other newspaper has already reported on it. I get this is local to Seattle, but still - I have turned off alerts for news due to that. Finally - if I see an article on Seattle Times Facebook and want to read it in this app, I cannot because I can’t find it. And there is not search button. This means even as a paying customer, unless Facebook tells me, I’m only reading a few curated articles using this app.

    Articles often close on you as you’re trying to scroll around read them. Really stupid design.
  • Add language translation

    Suggestion : would be great to add translate to language of choice!
  • World’s smallest font

    This is the only news app out of the 6 or so that I subscribe to which will not allow the user to change the font size. The text is obnoxiously small and even with good vision it is hard to read.
  • Font size settings for article not available

    The font size for the article content cannot be changed which makes articles very difficult to read on iPhone. This app is advertised as working for iPhone and iPad but it was designed to work with iPad only. What the point of having an app and electronic newspapers article if the font size cannot be changed. This app is just the worst ever and could me make unsubscribe because I cannot change the font have difficulties to read articles… so bad

  • The website is better

    The Seattle Times app is a poor clone of the website. Most of the content is the same, but the app has functionality problems. For example, I’ve found that some articles are cut off prematurely and that it is way too easy to exit out of an article I’m reading. Once you swipe right out of an article, you have to start the article over. You also can’t see comments on the article from the app. I really want to like the app, but I’m better off reading the mobile site rather than dealing with the infuriating app.
  • Not comprehensive, and no search function

    2
    By The Reverend Doctor Brando
    It’s not designed as a page view, but organized by paper section. It’s difficult to find articles you might be searching for, and not all sections are fully presented. No search function is an untenable design decision for a news organization.
  • Font size in articles

    When will you fix the font size in articles? I can adjust the IOS font, and headlines are impacted. However when you go into the article, the main text is still super small.
  • Great app, where's the search button?
