Wasn’t it obvious when one played with the WSJ and Time apps that the apps were a massive step back? I loved the look of the Time app, but then I tried to select and copy a paragraph to send to a friend. I did the action automatically, without even thinking.
And guess what? You can’t do that. You can’t e-mail. You can’t bookmark. It made me realize how much the experience of reading has changed. Nobody really just reads anymore. They copy text, send links, tweet.
