The New York Times is now available to Flipboard users on Android and for readers using Amazon's Kindle Fire after the publication launched on the platforms today.

Users will be able to access the Top News section for free, while other sections, on a range of subjects in different formats, are only available to subscribers.

In a release Denise Warren, general manager of NYTimes.com and senior vice president and chief advertising officer of The New York Times Media Group, said: "This is just another way for Times subscribers to access our rich content on the platforms they use, which is part of our overall NYT Everywhere strategy."

NYT Everywhere was officially launched last year when the New York Times became available on Flipboard for iPad and iPhone and is intended to expand the newspaper's reach into mobile and third party platforms.

"We want our users to be able to access our journalism wherever they are, on whatever device and platform they use," Linda Zebian, manager of corporate communications at the New York Times told Journalism.co.uk.

"We've continually evolved the distribution of our journalism to suit the needs of our customers – from the launch of NYTimes.com in 1996, to our early iPhone app in 2008 – and you've seen examples of this recently with our launches on Flipboard, Windows 8 and our experimental HTML5 Web App for iPad."
