NY Times Relaunches Android App
The New York Times today relaunched its Android News app, designed and formatted for optimal reading for all tablets and phones running Google's mobile operating system.
The app features a new interface that incorporates native Android styles, including more intuitive, responsive navigation and a new design and layout.
The relaunched app features more than 25 sections of Times news, information and opinion, including videos, slide shows and blogs. It also features offline reading and a full set of share options for articles, videos and slide shows across social media and e-mail, the company said.
A new commenting feature allows Android users to view and add comments.
“We are steadfast in our efforts to deliver our esteemed journalism and multimedia to our readers on the platforms they use,” Denise Warren, senior VP and chief advertising officer of The New York Times Media Group and GM of NYTimes.com, said in a statement. “That means we are constantly examining our products and looking for ways to improve their features and functionality.”
The new app is available at Google's Play store. The app's "Top News" section is free to all users, but only Times subscribers can access other sections.
