Experience our world-class news in a whole new way. Browse our up-to-the-minute Top News feed displayed in card format. Each card shows the cover image (if the article has one), title and overview. You can easily navigate through cards simply by making small circular motions.

Hovering over an article flips the card, revealing the full article. Use the small circular motion to scroll up and down within the article, or make shake motion to return to the Top News feed.

    Controls work very well. The NYTimes has never been so enjoyable.

    it works surprisingly well given my overall frustration with the highly sensitive leap motion device itself. on the other hand, it's very simplistic. having said that, though, i'm afraid if they try and add more, like the rest of the apps, it'll lose what little accuracy it has and become unusable....like most other apps.

  • Best Interface and Controls in the entire airspace. Period.

    Enough said. Twirl your finger in a circular motion to scroll. Shake hand to dismiss. Hover to select. Natural ideas that the rest of the store should take note of. http://justanotherguyyouknow.wordpress.com/2013/07/31/one-of-the-coolest-things-on-the-market-and-youre-going-to-love-it/

  • Cool App and great start needs improvements

    Great start to a wonderful app. I agree with all the other reviews, it needs a little more content and slightly better controls. As one reviewer said "moving hand for scrolling is much more intuitive than rotating finger." The rotating finger made me think, really, really, old school newspaper scroll machines. How about a little more minority report and less 1992 public library. :)

    At least the control gestures work well with this App, most of the other Apps I've downloaded are all over the place. News content is a bit light, but not a bad start.

  • Nice but should be improved

    by Ombralast – August 19, 2013

    The app is nice and intuitive, scrolling rotating the finger is intuitive enough. I wonder why there's no way to close the app using the Leap. Good work I hope there will be more content in the next updates.

  • Simple to use, but room for improvement

    by JohnMalcolm1970 – July 21, 2013

    I thought this program was easy to use. I'm not convinced by the need to have two different methods of scrolling through content. There's seemingly no obvious way of quitting the software either, unless I've missed something obvious. Could be doing with a wee bit more polish.

  • Off To A Good Start UPDATE

    4 of 5
    by ryggs – September 27, 2013

    Like the gestures, and unlike many, this app has an easy way to close it (X in top right corner). But for now, everything is out of whack. Story "cards" are presented with writing backwards, sometimes with the whole thing upside down. UPDATE: The problems I submitted in my first review have been addressed, and the app now runs fluidly, and with no glaring problems. Good app
