This replaces a previous Web app that launched as a beta product in September 2012. Located at app.nytimes.com/todayspaper, Today’s Paper is supported by HTML 5 technologies. It has been developed “for readers who value the regular schedule, structured composition and totality of the daily print edition,” according to The New York Times. The Web app includes all sections, articles, and photos found in the print edition, plus video. The product features swipe- and scroll-friendly navigation, and is optimized for both portrait and landscape modes. Editions are available for seven days, and offline reading is an available option. According to Denise Warren, executive vice president of digital products and services, The New York Times:
