    Didn’t NYT have apple watch support? Is that unavailable with this new build of their app?

    I thought that the Winnipeg Free Press was at the ‘cutting edge’ with
    their new subscription format. Are they still raking in the money from
    that move? I wouldn’t know as now I read all about Toronto instead
    thanks to the Globe and Mail and the National Post. Good luck NY Times
    Now: I guess I’ll be learning a bit more about New York as well.

  • This app is surprisingly good. Simple, clean and easy to read.

  • Yeah, but that’s the main NYT iOS app. NYT Now is a curated digest of their top stories and others from the web. Like Yahoo News Digest somewhat.
