NY Times updates iPad app to offer complete content


The New York Times has released an updated version of their iPad application which offers a complete offering of content unlike the app’s previous version. The previous version of the app was criticized for only offering limited content as hinted by its previous Editors’ Choice title. In addition to being able to access full content, the NYTimes for iPad app also now offers access to photo slideshows within articles, access to all sections including 50 NY Times blogs, breaking news alerts and improved navigation and design.

Currently, the application is free, but it won’t be for long. The New York Times plans to put up a pay wall to its content online which will also cover the iPad application in early 2011. Though a subscription is not yet required, a registered account with the NY Times is if you wish to access all sections of the app.

A tablet is a pretty cool way to read the news, but if you ask me, still not worth the price tag.
