The New York Times Launches BlackBerry 10 App


The New York Times has launched their news and information BlackBerry 10 app. The app has a slick BlackBerry 10 design and user interface with both the front page and sections are accessed with a swipe towards the left.

Digital subscribers get access to more sections and unlimited articles while free users get unlimited top news and a 10 free articles per month until needing a 99 cents per month digital subscription.

The app also has a video section, but the videos can currently only be viewed in portrait mode taking up less than a quarter of the Z10′s gorgeous screen. The videos feel like you’re watching a portrait video on a widescreen tv which is a bit annoying for now.

I should also note this about the BlackBerry Z10 touchscreen keyboard within BlackBerry World. The only letter I had to press, was “N” the rest I was swiping up correct word guesses.
