The New York Times has introduced its free app for the iPad called "The Editors’ Choice app."
The Editors’ Choice app offers two pages of content from the top eight to ten articles in news, business, technology, opinion and feature sections from The Times along with videos and slideshows.
The New York Times says the ad-supported app is optimized to take advantage of the iPad’s large screen display, video and slideshow capabilities. The Times is also planning a full, paid app for iPad.
"Times readers will find the iPad to be an exceptionally useful and entertaining way to closely follow what is happening around them locally, nationally and internationally," said Yasmin Namini, senior vice president, marketing and circulation, The New York Times Media Group, and general manager, reader applications.
Features of the app include:
*Offline reading – download and sync articles and images to iPad for viewing offline
*Share options – email articles to others from the app
