NY Times

The official New York Times applications for iPhone and iPad have just been updated. These apps are both now ready for iOS 8 and include a few new features like Handoff support.

NYTimes still isn't a universal app, but the two do share the same changelog with today's update. The NYTimes app for iPhone is now at version 4.5, while the NYTimes app for iPad is at version 3.5.
