New York Times Drops Plans for Kids App

From a Wall Street Journal story by Patience Haggin and Alexandra Bruell headlined “New York Times Drops Plans for Kids App”:

The New York Times is canceling its plans to launch an app for children, according to an internal email reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

The development of a kids app came as the Times has been increasingly focusing on areas beyond news. It has acquired the sports-media site The Athletic and the popular game Wordle, it has a Cooking app and also has the Wirecutter, a product-recommendation site.
