The $4-a-month app, which launched in January, was an attempt to reach readers outside the U.K. and find a new revenue stream outside The Times’ usual strict paywall.
Tamedia’s 12-App collects the 12 best stories each day from the company’s 20-plus publications.
The module formerly known as Watching is linking out less than it used to, but the Times says it still believes in curating the work of other news organizations.
