It’s no secret how much I love reading the New York Times on my Windows PCs using the Times Reader. I like it so much I have long paid the annual subscription, and that says it all. The only thing I haven’t liked about Times Reader is how there was no version for the Mac. That changed last week and when I picked up my Mac from repair yesterday one of the first things I did was download the beta version of the Times Reader for the Mac.
The install process was painless with a check for Microsoft Silverlight followed by a download and install of that. Once Silverlight was properly installed then the Reader itself installed in just a minute. Using the Mac version is very much like the Windows version with the Reader providing the same great newspaper reading experience on the Mac. I can already tell I am really going to enjoy reading the NYT on my MacBook Pro.
