"While the Times' app on iPhone, iPad, and Android continues to be very successful, very few people use the app on their BlackBerry," a spokeswoman told Reuters.
BlackBerry recently announced a fiscal second-quarter loss of nearly $1 billion. The company's revenue fell 45 percent to $1.57 billion during the period. Meanwhile, the company last month received a buyout bid from Fairfax Financial, which owns a minority stake, and said it was willing to bring BlackBerry private at $9 per share for the roughly 90 percent of outstanding stock that it didn't already own. The total deal would be valued at $4.7 billion.
On this side of the pond, the other Times -- the one in New York -- dumped its BlackBerry app in July 2012.
