The Daily – the iPad-only newspaper from News Corp, was updated again a couple days ago, to Version 1.0.5. Here are the changes listed for this update:
- Enhancements to subscription process
- Improvements to start-up experience
- Increased performance of weather page
Following this update, The Daily actually does feel a fair bit snappier. When it is not loading a new issue / new content, it loads in about 5 seconds for me. This is substantially better than before.
Moving between pages now also feels much smoother and most individual page loads seem quite a bit quicker.
Of all the various minor 1.0.x updates The Daily has had so far, this one is the one where I’ve noticed improvement the most.
Here’s an App Store link for The Daily; it’s a free app with in-app weekly and yearly subscription options at $0.99 and $39.99 respectively.
