The New York Times has went back to the drawing board and plans to release a better iOS app geared towards a "mobile audience". The NYT Now app will be a Flipboard-like offering that brings curated news from The Times and from other websites. It will also offer two daily briefings summarizing the day's events. A subscription to the app will cost $8 month for new subscribers.
The New York Times also plans to roll out another app called the called Times Insider. This app will give readers access to a behind-the-scenes look at the newspaper. Both apps will be available for the iPhone only starting on Wednesday, April 2. A Times Premier subscription will cost $45.
