Think about that. A news app, a piece of software about the news
made by in-house developers, generated more clicks than any
article. And it did this in a tiny amount of time: The app
only came out on December 21, 2013. That means that in the 11
days it was online in 2013, it generated more visits than any
I’ll repeat: It took a news app only 11 days to “beat” every
other story the Times published in 2013. It’s staggering.
