If you have been following The New York Times and are a loyal reader, then perhaps now it’s time to make the switch to the Windows 8 app. Now, it has received support for Windows 8.1, as well.
Here, at Wind8Apps, we love news apps and that’s why we’ve reviewed so many – CNN, Financial Times and others. Now, I’ve noticed that the Windows 8 app version of the New York Time has received an important updated in the Windows Store. Although the release doesn’t mention anything about full Windows 8.1 support, I can confirm at least that I now can use the large tile.
As a matter of fact, prior to this update, I wasn’t even able to open the Windows 8 app The New York Times, and I thought it had to do with the fact that I wasn’t based in the United States. But looking through more reviews and the general feedback that users left on the Windows Store, I realized it was a common bug. So, now it seems that this Windows 8.1 update fixes it and brings a number of other improvements.
