The New York Times is one of the United States largest newspapers and enjoys a very robust digital strategy. You can find their paper available on the Kindle, Android and iOS. One of the things that lacks on most digital editions is the newspapers are in reality dedicated apps, they lack the tectonic feel of the real thing. This all changes today as the New York Times Replica edition is now available via PressReader.
So what is a replica edition? The digital copy basically mirrors the printed version with local advertising, cartons and crosswords puzzles. These extended features often lack on the application versions, which basically have only the articles and pictures. When you take out a subscription with PressReader or PressDisplay you get access to The Sunday New York Times, The New York Times Magazine and The New York Times Sunday Book Review.
The Replica Edition of The New York Times for the iPad is free for existing Replica Edition and home delivery print subscribers, $19.99 for a 4-week recurring subscription and $259.87 for an annual recurring subscription.
