Review: Newly Updated New York Times Android App

The New York Times recently updated its Android app to integrate the beauty of Material Design. They asked us to try it out and see the new, fluid navigation options of the updated app. It didn’t disappoint. This is a sponsored review of The New York Times App.

For years, The New York Times has been the number one source of for those who seek quality content. The new app showcases the beautiful Material Design integration. Compared to the previous version, the new update allows its readers to seamlessly swipe left and right to browse through different news articles. A simple swipe from the left also brings up the menu section, where an array of topics are available for the user to pick out one that interests them.

Besides Material Design, the update added a widget of The New York Times app. Through this widget, users can check out headline articles and other interesting topics directly from their home screen. When they see something interesting, the user can tap on it to be redirected to the full article on the app. The widget also comes in a resizable option, allowing users to make it fill the entire screen or shrink it down to a small portion.

This update proves how The New York Times manages to stand out from other news apps on Android. While it’s not as flashy as other apps available, it highlights what’s important—the editorial content. Articles on the newly updated The New York Times Android app are displayed in a distraction-free and clutter-free environment for users to easily read through. And with a few simple gestures, this update makes it the best version of the app.

The addition of Material Design made The New York Times app more enjoyable and easier to love. And since it’s free, you can download it anytime onto your device. Head on over to the Android Play Store to download the newly updated version of The New York Times app.

    Having a hard time grasping how this is Tmo-related.

    • besweeet

      Hopefully this isn’t a sign of what’s to come.

      • Adrayven

        Sadly, I think I’m likely to pull tmonews from my go-to list of news feeds if this keeps happening.

        • Verizonthunder

          Use pulse news app it’s great i can view several tech news sites on one feed

  • VG

    Uh-Oh! Did the NY Times pay Phone Dog to have this posted as an “article”? Ad-Blocker won’t be able to catch ads like this!

    • Herb

      A respected source of information would publicly disclose if an article was placed on the site in a paid arrangement with a sponsor. This article doesn’t even have an author. Either an intern at PhoneDog really likes NYT, or PhoneDog is committing a serious breach of journalistic ethics.

      The Society of Professional Journalists states in their code of ethics that journalists should “Act independently” and “deny favored treatment to advertisers.”

      PhoneDog should come clean that this is a paid advertisement.

      • thepanttherlady

        When it was first posted, it said the writer was Alex Wagner.

  • Mike Palomba

    What does this have to do with T-Mobile?

  • taxandspend

    Doesn’t sound like Cam wrote this one.

    • thepanttherlady

      The writer’s name is right below the title.

      • taxandspend

        Maybe this is why he decided to move on.

      • Herb

        Ah, yes. The famed author “TmoNews.” This post screams paid advertisement but isn’t labeled as such, which I find misleading to readers. The post even has a “New York Times” tag, like that’s a subject this blog’s readers want to find other posts about.

        I know you love this place and you’ve been a great moderator, but you have to see our side on this one, yeah?

        • thepanttherlady

          Honestly, I didn’t even read the article. :)

          And thank you!

        • Herb

          I can respect that answer haha

  • taxandspend

    “it highlights what’s important—the editorial content”

    In NY Times readers’ world, opinions are more important than unbiased news reports?

  • Eric

    We’ll give you a pass on this one, just because you’re new. But friendly reminder: this site is for T-MOBILE news. I have plenty of other news sources for Android news. Thanks.

    • Verizonthunder

      I agree this newbie gets one pass also from me. This site is only for T-Mobile news (verbatim)

    • VG

      Alex has written various articles for Tmonews since late 2013, so I wouldn’t call him “new”. :)

  • JE_25

    Please tell me this isn’t Cam’s replacement. If so, I’m not sure he fully grasps the purpose of tmonews.

  • This is not T-mobile related. Writers please keep on topic with T-mobile News. The only reason I come here is for T-mobile not the latest apps.

  • Protect yo net

    Wow, wtf is this? I did not read anything, but I had to click and comment. Is this what we should expect going forward? Unrelated, non-T-Mobile random news?

    @panttherlady, I never ask you for any, but I’m about to. Can you please delete this blog post /article? You are a mod, right? I click on way to many ads each time I visit this site and can’t support this nonsense. Ain’t nobody got time for this!!!

    • thepanttherlady

      Sorry, too busy streaming Netflix on my phone. =P

      Actually, I don’t have access to that. I also don’t determine what gets written and posted. In other words, I’m the boss, just not here. LOL

  • Jess

    Meanwhile in T-moland……… lol.

  • Zbum

    NY TIMES ?? Who reads that rag anymore……NATIONAL ENQUIRER has more legit news.

    • DDLAR

      I read it every day. I think it’s great. What don’t you like about it?

      • Bradly Robberson

        Well the New York times is a Leftist Communist paper that hates america and wants to destroy everything good about how this country was founded, but that is I guess your opinion.

  • iMotoXperiaGalaxy

    The end of Tmonews? I hope so. Fanboys here are worst than Bieber fans.
    #FireLegere #AdiosCam

    Haha!

    • thepanttherlady

      So are some of the resident trolls….

    • Terry

      Please do crawl back under the bridge you crawled out from. Trollboy. :-)

  • VG

    Wait a sec! I know for a fact that this article originally had the author listed as “Alex Wagner” earlier today, and now it has a generic “Tmonews” listed as the author???? What’s going on?

    • thepanttherlady

      Maybe he left too?

      Hahahaha…so kidding!!! :)

      • VG

        HaHa! That means you are the logical choice to get the job! I wish you well, Panther Lady. At least you know your T-Mobile phones! Can’t wait to read your postings.

        • thepanttherlady

          That wouldn’t work because they’d have to add me to the payroll. As it stands I’m here for free. Yes, I’m a glutton for punishment. =D

    • VG

      And who is the guy in the video? The YouTube page for the video lists the guy as “Marco”. At least YouTube clearly has the phrase “*Sponsored video” in the description. This is clearly an ad!!!!

  • Shane Walker

    So, either there is an FTC violation or PhoneDog is attempting to cross-post their content…

  • William Kirschman
