The Economist publishes iPad app
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.
Each week's issue will be made available at 9pm GMT every Thursday, The Economist said with the ruthless precision for which it is famous. ®
