無料アプリ 評価数 268 開発者 The New York Times Company (iDP)
I have been using this app ever since it first came out, and I am a big fan of the New York TImes in general. (I suppose this means I am somewhat biased.) The app has had its ups and downs, but I would say that it has been improving steadily overall. There was a period (right around the time iOS 5 first came out) that the app crashed so often on my iPad (original version) that I had to switch to using the Web site as an alternative. There have been several updates since then, so they are working to squash the bugs. The crashes are now much less frequent, and I would not be surprised if they do not affect iPad 2 owners as much. So though still far from perfect, this app is quite usable in its current form. I personally use it every day and could not imagine living without it (although I suppose I could revert back to the Web site or the Times Reader app on my Mac in a pinch). Highly recommended.
The upgrade from the previous Editors Choice app is overall a welcome one. Performance had taken a minor hit, but that's an acceptable tradeoff. Text selection is mysteriously missing though. This means you can't easily look a word, or copy an interesting quote. Other minor gripes include lack of sensible video browsing by category and no cache-all-content for offline (e.g. on the subway) reading.
