The New York Times is still the third largest newspaper, but their weekday circulation has been falling over the last couple of years. The company turned to mobile to expand their reach with an iPhone app (first released in 2008) and now they are following it up with an Android version.
One of our readers spotted the placeholder for a forthcoming FAQ page about the Android app and it says to check back soon. There were several unofficial NY Times apps on the Android Market, but they started disappearing last year so it looks like the real deal.
The iPhone version of the NY Times is free to download and use so we expect the same for Android.
I’m not exactly a fan of the NY Times (don’t get me started), but if you are then keep an eye on the Android FAQ page for updates.
