Update – NYTimes iPhone App

On April 4, 2009

Not to be outdone by USA Today‘s recent iPhone app update, the NYTimes iPhone app was just updated again. It wasn;t long ago that the verison number jumped to 2.0 but they have clearly been busy at work since then.

The update is smaller but still significant.

 It improves speed and stability, it adds the ability to disable screen rotation (love screen rotation to landscape but sometimes you don’t WANT it to change), it downloads more content for offline reading and it automatically downloads articles related to the ones just read.

As I have posted on Gear Diary, I love my Amazon Kindle but for newspaper reading I still prefer the NYTimes iPhone app. This makes that even more the case as it takes an excellent news app and makes it even better.

The NYTimes iPhone app is free.
