Almost every Times reader we talked to in our user research going back since I started (3 years) told us they didn’t find video the right medium for learning about the news. That’s a small sample size and prob more indicative of the Times audience, but it was noticeable.

Apps versus the web — Benedict Evans
you should have a website that works well on mobile regardless of whether you also have an app, and that site should give your complete proposition, since that of course is where links from Google and Facebook will take people.

You do have to earn an install, I think.
