It’s a summary of the day’s news, written by an actual journalist, with links to the best reporting in the world, published once a day. It’s optimized for your phone or iPad so you can read it on the train home or on the couch. It can be the starting point for a deep-dive or just enough so you sound erudite at your next cocktail party. What it’s not, and what it will never be, is another chirp of noise constantly guilting you into checking it. It’s breaking news for the slow web.
It’s also quite lovely. Completely web based and responsive. The “save to home screen” icon is quite nice too. Proof that not everything good has to be delivered in an app. Sometimes the web is enough.
