The New York Times has updated its official apps for iOS.
Both NYTimes for iPhone and NYTimes for iPad now promise complete coverage of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, which will take place from Feb 7 to 23 — including news alerts which can be signed up for once the games begin.
One of the great disappointments of the iPad has finally been remedied. After six months of living with the extremely limited app NY Times Editor’s Choice, the iPad has finally gotten “All the News That’s Fit to Print.”
The App Store pushed out NY Times 2.0 less than an hour ago. The free, all-new iPad appcontains the full content of the Paper of Record, along with the contents of a select number of the Times’s blogs. It’s the whole newspaper, but better than the print edition.
Enjoy it while it lasts, though. The Times promises that a paid subscription will be required starting in early 2011. Here’s hoping that a print subscription will grant access, unlike what the New Yorker is doing with its iPad app.
