NYTimes Election 2012
by: The New York Times Company • 427
Election 2012 is just around the corner. If you've been disconnected from Elections 2012 it's time to catch up with one of the best Android app for following campaign, developed by one of the most reliable news source: New York Times. Actually, what this app does is bringing together Elections-related news published on the NYTimes and show it in an understandable way.
This app is divided in four sections. From "News" you can read any article Elections-related published on NYT. Each article is listed on a category depending on the issue discussed, e.g. Foreign Policy, Campaign Finance, Conventional Wisdom, Tax Returns, etc. From "Opinion" sections users will have access to a compilation of experts' blogs with daily updated opinions. "Election Guide" is a section which is locked for non-subscribers. There will be displayed polls results, calendars and state profiles for Presidential Race, Senate, House, Primaries, etc. Finally, "Mulltimedia" tab, which is also available for NYT subscribers. Anyway, access to this section just will cost you 99 cents for the first 4 weeks.
In addition, you can apply filter to all that sections (Top News/All sources). The app is set in a user-friendly interface and runs smooth. The only catch is the private content: we would prefer a paid version of the app with full access to all this features instead of a subscription. Anyway, one of the best Elections-related apps.
