I've tried this out for a few weeks, trying to read the paper and do the crosswords every day on a cheap trial subscription. I have now cancelled the subscription because the app is so poor. There are no automatic download options, no options to delete old content and navigation is very difficult. Some content is difficult or impossible to find, e.g. football results or fixtures, and TV listings.

How the entire team behind this abomination of an app have not been fired I will never know. How the times have not hired someone new to fix it makes no sense. I simply cannot wait for my fixed term contract to end to cancel my subscription. Why would you give away a nexus tablet that cannot seemingly handle downloading this newspaper.

Almost never downloads correctly. Picture content is frequently missing and video links seldom work. A lot of content that is available on the iPhone app is missing from the Android version. I bought s digital subscription but still buy the paper edition several times a week because I cannot access any or all of the digital content on my Nexus 7.

...vs the iOS version combined with significant subscription fee. Tired of of waiting for lag and subsidising the iOS users so cancelled today.

They've now fixed the page stick issues, but very slow to render some full page graphics. Also no automatic downloads of papers. Nexus 7 / Android 5.0.1

Substandard, the cons now our way the pros. Will not be renewing subscription

Phablets should be tested with this app since not everyone wants to use a tablet to read the paper. Whole lines missing between pages make it unuseable on the Xperia. Reverting to the old Times app which works brilliantly.

Hasn't worked for more than a week, hangs on the 'opening edition' page. And we're paying for this??? Update 27/12/14 Still hanging every so often, why can't The Times fix this app??

Subscribed two days ago still can't login, says I'm not subscribed, if that is the case GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK, disgraceful company no better than app con merchants. Gave it one star because it won't let me give it a MINUS 10 Star. Hopefully the developers read the reviews on here.!!!

This is just about the app with the lowest maturity I've seen in a long time. Cancelling my digital subscription.

Users pay real money for this regardless of whether the daily edition successfully downloads and at a 50% - 60% success rate its not great value for money. Its the equivalent of going to the newsagent every day and paying for your paper but not actually taking the paper with you. When it works the content is great

If possible, this would get no stars. After a year of the daily mail, an trying out the Time s and Telegraph. This app is so poor, I will cancel my time subscription immediately. It will not download content, so is as much use as a chocolate teacup for reading content on trains

This is an app specificaly designed for you to read a prestigious newspaper but it has always been appalling. It jams, crashes, freezes and simply makes reading a chore and not a pleasure. I have long ago stopped trying to see any downloadable content as much more often than not it just never appears and I have super super fast cable. It has been through numerous revisions but is still useless.

I have been a Times subscription customer for around 2 years now. I really can't understand how this app can be so poor. I was originally a beta tester and all these problems were highlighted. The developers clearly have not got a clue. If I did not get the paper version free on a Sunday I would have left months ago.

New update since Nexus Lollipop update simply doesn't work, please fix as soon as possible.....
