Apple’s iPad was lucky enough to have “The Daily”, a newspaper made specifically for tablets, originally launch on its platform. The newspaper is now officially one year old and it’s reported that there are 100,000 paying subscribed readers of the publication. The subscription costs $0.99 a week or $39.99 a year. News Corp. is the creator of the publication and has already created an Android compatible version of the paper for tablets, with iPhone and Android phones getting it soon.
The Daily has became a new way for tablet owners to get their news on a daily basis and has seen more and more users over the year; more than expected. With this development, it should only be a matter of time before other news corporations start pushing versions to tablets as well. I know I will be happy when this day comes since I check my news sources throughout the day and on a daily basis.
