The Daily is a cool experiment, although the app needs some serious optimizations in our opinion. Still, the content seems to be pretty nice, and it’s indeed being updated “daily” with new articles, covers and videos. As you may have noticed, most of the articles from The Daily app are also shared by News Corp’s team on the web, but there’s no index for all these links. Either you follow @thedaily on Twitter to read every single link, or you can’t just head over the website and browse a complete archive of stories. The availability of backlog issues was a also a subject discussed by News Corp and journalists at the official announcement of the app yesterday and it looks like, at least for now, The Daily has no plans to create a public archive of all their stories on the web.
But, there is a solution. The unofficial “The Daily: Indexed” archive by Andy Baio provides a single place to find all the articles from The Daily that have already been shared on the web. The blog aggregates all the links, organizes them by day and even offers a preview of each day’s cover. It’s an interesting (and useful) experiment that also plays very well with Instapaper and Read It Later, if you like the content of The Daily but don’t want to download the app.
