The execs at the New York Times appreciate that you read lots of articles via the paper’s mobile apps, but they just have one little request: Ante up. To nudge readers toward that goal, today the Times has tightened the paywall on its mobile apps.
Previously, anyone using a Times mobile app could access three free articles per day. The paper will now allow you to access just 10 free articles per month. After that, you’ll be prompted to pay for a subscription. Any articles reached by social network links still won’t count toward your monthly limit.
Now please, you know what to do: 1) Listen to some Mash Out Posse and 2) Buy a Times subscription.
