The Economist publishes iPad app

Free-trade tablet

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Anti-Corn Law nag rag The Economist has arrived on the iPad and iPhone in the form of a dedicated app.

Subscribers - whether of the web or paper version - don't have to pay for the tablet-enscribed content. The rest of us will have to cough up £3.49 for each issue, billed through iTunes. The app itself is free.

Copies are retained for future reading - or until you run out of room, presumably.

At your local newsagents, a copy costs £4, but the price of the free-trade advocate's annual subscription is £102.00, which makes it £2 for a printed version by post.
