The Economist App Debuts for iPhone, iPad

The Economist made its move into the app world, launching apps for the iPhone and iPad. The apps are available free-of-charge, and print and Web subscribers also receive the app content, while nonsubscribers must fork over £3.49 ($5.57) per issue, compared with the newsstand price of £4 ($6.38).

The full print edition will be delivered to the Apple devices at 9 p.m. London time (4 p.m. ET) every Thursday, and users also have access to the audio edition, with every article read by professional newscasters.
