Like many (including my bud Ronen over at BerryReview), I could have sworn the New York Times already had a BlackBerry App available for download. Guess I was wrong. The app I must have been thinking about was/is for the iPhone (I have it installed on my iPhone), and it’s a pretty darn good news app. All of the Times offerings to this point have been desktop shortcuts.
If the iPhone edition is any indicator, the BlackBerry edition should be solid for anyone wanting to get their fill of the Times. Articles are downloaded to your Berry’s memory for offline viewing, which is kind of handy. Especially if you find yourself in a ‘dead zone’ with no network coverage. Content is also optimized for your BlackBerry’s screen resolution, for optimal viewing and ease of use.
To check it out, head on over to http://www.nytimes.com/bbapp from your BlackBerry, or read more from your desktop here. The New York Times BlackBerry App is available for the Tour, Storm, Bold and Curve 8900.
Note: You can check out the New York Times for iPhone App right here (iTunes link).
