Appearing on the Android Market following releases on both the iPhone and WebOS platforms, the NYT application looks extremely similar to its iPhone counterpart. You can access news from an abundance of sections via a drop down menu, similar to how you’d pull down the notification bar.

Detailed Preview/Review Of The Official Android Dropbox Client Beta

For those unaware, Dropbox.com is an online file storage service that gives users a free account to store up to 2GB of files.

As you install the client software on other systems, your files become instantly accessible, providing a very convenient way to share data between home, work, and mobile devices (an official iPhone client was released on September 29, 2009).
