Last summer, The New York Times brought its mobile apps more in line with the rest of the company’s digital offerings by creating a meter that limited the number of free stories to three a day.

Today, the Times tweaked its meter once again: The company announced that users of its mobile apps would now be allowed 10 free stories a month, according to an email from Times spokesperson Linda Zebian.
