The Daily – the first iPad-only newspaper – has launched this morning and is available in the App Store now.
It costs $0.99 per week as expected. I followed Macworld’s liveblog of the announcement event and may have more notes on that later. I’ve got The Daily almost downloaded now – here in Texas we have ‘Rolling Brownouts’ in effect all morning – meaning the power is on for 5 minutes, then off for 60 or more all day so far. So I almost got the app fully downloaded when WiFi was briefly available, but not quite.
I can tell you that you have to agree to new App Store Terms & Conditions when you download the app. They’ve added a new section titled In-App Subscriptions. It’s one long paragraph that lets you know that in-app subscriptions are non-refundable and are set to auto renew (and you can choose to cancel the auto-renew). it also informs us that certain publishers may ask for permission to share our email addresses / other details for marketing purposes.
You can find The Daily in the App Store now.
