    Has no choice but to update the app, and I am so disappointed! The original version was like reading a newspaper, I could search and easily navigate. This new version is like reading a blurb of headlines. The old format was much better. I'm all for change, but make it a good change.

    No link to previous one for crossword puzzles! Give your customers the option of using old platform, much better than the new one! Very disappointing
  • Very Disappointing

    By TroyNY52
    This update is not very user friendly and difficult to navigate. There is no search function. The crossword puzzles are nowhere to be found. The previous version was better. If I could restore the previous version I would. I don’t believe this was well thought out.
  • Going backwards

    By Gary from Saratoga
    I keep trying to love this update, but can’t. The Times Union is a great newspaper, but the old app, while unstable at times, was easier to navigate and felt more like reading a newspaper. If you’re new to the app, you will like it for the content. If you were satisfied with the old app, prepare to be frustrated.

  • Disappointing

    By Matt112357
    It seems crazy in this day and age to have a news app without a search function. And where are the comics, super quiz, etc.? This app is like reading a watered down version of the print edition. Was really hoping for more from the TU.
  • Revised app

    By Renssco
    Wow, This app is terrible, Who thought this up? No search, missing articles from the print version. User friendly this is not. The old app would be an improvement. Switch it back!!!!
  • New update 11/13

    Updated new app - I hate it. Do not like the format at all. I liked the menu on the left side of the page. Big reason for subscription was crossword puzzles. Can’t locate them on site. Are they there??
