The Times newspaper working on official Windows Phone 8 app

The Times (, a British newspaper, has revealed to readers that the publication is working on a Windows Phone 8 app. Previously sporting an official app for older versions of Windows Phone, the app was pulled and is no longer available. While there's no official release date or ETA, we're excited to see the newspaper continuing to support the platform.

Louisa from customer services stated in a response to a question put forward, "we are currently developing an app for Windows Phone 8." When queried whether the team is also working on a solution for Windows 8, she noted that they're currently looking at multiple new platforms to support and will advise readers when said apps become available.

We'll keep our eyes peeled for apps on both Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8.

Thanks, Michael, for the tip!
