The New York Times Android app coming soon

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.

Look for an app soon.

    You mean the NYT is still in business?

    Hey, they just did a story on man landing on the moon. Those guys are all over it.

    Don’t get you started? On the NY Times? Is that even really necessary to share with us?

    Oh boy, my view of this blog has been poisoned.

      Oh no! You have a “poisoned” view of this site. Guess they have to shut it down. Of course a NYTimes app is news; it’s a huge national news outlet.

    The New York times is an absolute waste of toilet paper. I’d rather be waterboarded!

  • Jonathan

    I’ll bite. Why aren’t you a fan of the New York Times? (I’m just curious; I don’t even it.)

    • Jonathan

      Read it. I don’t even read it. Dammit.

  • Dean Williams

    WSJ app?!? Bueller? Bueller?

    Nobody get too excited.

    That placeholder page on has been there for months — I know, I saw it myself in December. Although they may be working on an Android app, it does not mean we’ll be seeing it anytime soon.

    They seem to have updated the FAQ, but still no actual app available…

    Right now it seems like Expression Engine is the preferred blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
