"You can download the software from the New York Times's site. It runs on multiple platforms: You can use it on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems. It took me less then a minute to download the digital issues of the Times to my computer. The reader automatically loads up the last seven issues of the Times, but can change that in the app settings. The app is free to download and gives you free access to a few sections, such as the front page, Business Day, and the Sunday Times magazine. For full access to content, you need to buy a subscription for $14.95 a month.

"I've always loved the NYTimes.com's clean interface, and Times Reader 2.0 doesn't disappoint in that department. The reader's interface is antiseptically neat. It feels like you're reading a fluid PDF document; the pages rearrange themselves according to screen size to optimize its interface to your screen configurations."
