Clifford Levy, a two-time Pulitzer Award winning New York Times reporter turned editor, says that this week’s  launch of NYT Now app represents the “reimagining of news” on a mobile phone.

Unlike the paper’s longstanding App, an elegant firehose of over over 200 daily news stories, the new one  is organized with far fewer articles, around the clock, by over a dozen dedicated editors.   The editors  create easily consumed bullets and story summaries of Times articles.  Editors also surface up relevant content from other news sources. Monthly subscription is $8.00.

Levy is the lead editor of the NYT Now app team.  We spoke with him earlier this week at a media reception for the new App at the Times offices.
