The New York Times is one of the nation's leading sources of news, and its website is one a great extension of that. As people continue to work longer hours, travel farther to work, and try to pack every day full of things to do, it can be a little hard to find time to sit down and read the paper or browse the web. The Times has developed an Android application [Market link] that brings you its content in a very professional, easy to read manner. Let's take a look, after the break.


Often times content within an application can be hidden behind extra fluff, and can be a bit of a pain to navigate.  The N.Y. Times application opens to a clean view of the latest news, which is great for helping readers keep informed with bold headlines and then the opening line of the article. Accessing other news feeds from the latest news view is rather simple, with a very nice, fluent pull down menu that can be used, which reveals a breakdown of further categories. The application divides other news by subcategories, such as sports, real estate, travel, technology and many more. Beyond the various subcategories, the application itself is rather simplistic, as there are no options for customization. Pressing the menu button will merely reveal the option to access the various sections, or view the about details of the application. The application allows sharing of these articles with a simple press of the menu while reading, making it easy to share the application via email or through a social networking outlet.


While on the go, having the NY Times application installed on your Android device will save tons of time, and assist in keeping informed on all the latest news and events occurring. This information packed, easy to use application is available in the Android Market for free, so take a peek and keep informed with all the current headlines.
