As the drug dealers say, your first hit is free.  The New York Times is offering up a much grander version of the iPad app today (version 2.0), offering much more content than the previous ‘Editor’s Choice” version did.  However, that great news comes with an even greater caveat:

Introducing the enhanced New York Times app for the iPad –– free until early 2011. Now with all of the sections, articles, videos and photos you expect from The Times.

Other stuff:

  • Access to all sections plus a selection of blogs.
  • Photo slideshows are now accessible within articles and in their own section.
  • Breaking News Alerts help you stay informed even when the app is closed.
  • Improved design and navigation.
