Earlier in the year, Alley Interactive rebuilt and launched The New Republic, resulting in over 100 million pageviews on launch day.

As part of the site rebuild, the team created and implemented a number of user-experience improvements  notably spoken-word versions of articles and a Read Later feature, which allows a reader to return to a position on the page across devices.
