If you enjoy reading The New York Times through their BlackBerry 10 app, you'll have to be prepared to switch over to their mobile site starting in January. As announced in the app itself and on their site, The New York Times has decided they will no longer support the NYTimes app for BlackBerry 10.
Beginning in January, The New York Times will no longer support the NYTimes app for BlackBerry. You can access a more complete New York Times experience through our mobile site (mobile.nytimes.com) from your phone's browser.
The mobile website includes all of the same content and sections as the BB10 App, plus it has a more interactive and modern home page that is similar to our other digital experiences. All New York Times home delivery and digital subscribers have unlimited access to both our mobile and desktop sites. Nonsubscribers will continue to receive to a number of free articles per month.
Thank you for reading The New York Times, in all its forms.
Bit of a shame to see the app go as it was among one of the many apps that actually worked well on BlackBerry 10 but alas, it's now joining the growing list of apps that are being removed from the platform including WhatsApp, Evernote, Dropbox, Facebook and more. Even BlackBerry themselves will soon be shutting down ancillary services such as BlackBerry Travel and eventually in 2019, BlackBerry World.
As highlighted in the announcement, the mobile site does have all the same content and sections as the app, so instead of firing up the app now, you'll just have to load up your browser or shortcut. If you're running an Android-based BlackBerry such as the BlackBerry KEYone or BlackBerry Motion, you are unaffected by this announcement as they make use of the Android app.
