New York Times Android App Now Available in Android Market

After many months of rumors (and prayers by some, including my wife), the New York Times has finally launched an application for the Android OS.  It is now live and available for download in the Android Market.

If you have seen the New York Times iPhone app, the Android app is almost a straight port.  It has a classy, simple interface, featuring a black and white color scheme.  The app is very full featured (thankfully) and included photos, sharing options, and even videos! It is a very good app for a 1.0. Users even get the ability to cache articles offline!

Check it out over on the market (if you like the New York Times that is!).   Let us know what you think.  I am sure a full review is coming soon.

    Thanks for the tip/heads-up from a news junkie. Down loaded it for my Droid.

    The extensive permissions it asks for are a bit unsettling though; why would it need permission to make calls on your behalf for instance?

      Usually that's just because of the fact that if a phone number shows up on a page, it allows you to click on it to make a call. There's no need to get too worried about stuff like that… Asking for your permissions doesn't mean the app goes crazy and does all those things without you knowing about it!

    I really like how they made it more Android-like. The interface I mean. I think developers should learn a thing or two about that. Instead of blindly porting from platform to platform, do a proper job and your customers would gladly pay what you charge for an app.

    To the people that cannot find the app, I had the same problem. I was searching for New York Times but it did not show up. I searched for NYT and it came up. Hope that helps.

    How come there is no option to update all sections at once? This would be very useful to have, especially before riding the subway….

    There’s now a lot better version on the market that allows unlimited offline reading of NYTimes articles for free: New York Times Free (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.newyorktimes). 
    It’s really fast and smooth. 

    It’s not an official application, I guess. But it’s much better than the official one.
