It’s been just over a year since this iPad only newspaper launched, and today it finally came to the iPhone. With it comes the only content written for a digital-only daily newspaper that covers topics ranging from News, Business, Gossip, Opinion, Arts & Life, Apps & Games, and Sports.
While this is great news for The Daily, I cannot help but feel it is a tad anticlimactic. In the year since it launched we’ve seen any number of free and equally useful aggregator apps. one in particular, Pulse, does an excellent job of organizing diverse sources into a coherent whole. I’ve used Pulse and I like it a lot. It offers the possibility of much the same breadth of topics while not costing the user anything.!–more–>
And it’s not alone, which makes the success of The Daily rather puzzling. You would think it would fail in the face of so much free competition, and yet it now has an iPad app.
The Daily is free to download with a monthly subscription starting at $2. You can even share a subscription between your iPad and iPhone.
