The New York Times‘ business section is launching a new blog called AppSmart focused on applications.
In addition, it has revamped its health care business blog Prescripions.
AppSmart, written by Bob Tedeschi, will debut Thursday, July 8, in the paper’s Personal Tech pages and online, with a focus on the ever-expanding universe of downloadable apps for smartphones.
