New York Times Reader

I posted in June about the wonderful New York Times reader application, written entirely in WPF. I'm delighted that this is now available for public download.

Scott Hanselman calls it WPF's first killer app. Ryan Stewart from ZDNet says it shows off exactly what a Rich Internet Application should be. CNET thinks it really is a better way to read the Times' news, but wishes these capabilities existed in general purpose form.

What do you think?

    I really wish you’d chosen something other than the NYT.  I think their journalistic credibility has gone down the toilet.

    It’s tough!  Pitting my standards for "news" versus my love of Avalon.  I would have much preferred WaPo or the WSJ, though i realize the latter is subscription only.

  4. The WPF NYT reader is a compelling example of why I believe XAML/WPF will change the face of the internet. Rich visual applications are not always about eye-candy. Well designed and implemented UIs will allow us to bring value-add to applications in ways we were unable to before.

    Seems like the NYT reader would be a good candidate to deploy as an XBAP for demo purposes.
