New York Times Ends Support for Blackberry App
Technology Editor, CNBC.com
The New York Times is cutting Blackberry users off, literally.
The media company shut down support for its Blackberry application Tuesday, but Blackberry users can still access content from nytimes.com visiting the NYT mobile website in their internet browser on their Blackberry device.
The Times said it was ending support for the application because the Blackberry app wasn't quite up to par for its standards, and users would benefit more from using the mobile website on a Blackberry device.
"Our mobile Web site offers a more complete New York Times experience than the NYTimes app native to your device. We’ve made the decision to consolidate our efforts and concentrate on delivering you the best possible experience through our mobile site," the company said on its website.
Blackberry maker Research in Motion did not immediatley return request for comment.
