The Daily – Rupert Murdoch’s iPad-only newspaper – faces a ‘moment of truth’ next week. Since its launch in early February it has been available for free on the iPad – next week the free period will end and users will need to take up one of the subscription options to continue reading it.
I’ve been keeping up with the app – daily – since its release and have shared my views on it in a full review of The Daily earlier this month. In short, I think it’s a great concept and I hope it succeeds, but it has a long way to go to be a good, solid iPad app and a number of major flaws to address.
I’ll be sticking with The Daily because I admire News Corp’s effort and investment in it, and because I’m an iPad app reviewer. How about you guys? Will you be continuing to read The Daily once it goes paid? If so, are you planning on a weekly or yearly subscription to it?
