    Today, News Corp. decided to release The Daily, a newspaper that has been in the works. What so special about this newspaper? Well it's for the iPad of course. This "ePaper" is built for the iPad and meant to be the new way of getting your news. You pay a mere $.99 a week or $40 a year, and you are updated with news every day in a fun format. Imagine reading your newspaper, being able to tap on it and have it read to you, or like you see in Harry Potter where the pictures move in the newspaper, this is basically like that. I like the idea and I can't wait to see what they do with it, check out The Daily in the iPad App Store for FREE with a 2 week trial!

      Pity it's not available outside th US. We are constantly being told we live in a global Market, but it's often not the case.

      I'll stick with the Daily Telegraph App. At least it's free!

      For newspapers I've taken to using Pulse.
      Great way to browse all the major dailies.

      Actually like my set up of apps. Pulse solely news, River of News for RSS feeds and Blogshelf for blogs.
      Makes reading in bed a joy.

      Ah the simple life.....

      WoW, I was surprised to see some of the comments aimed at the cost; it's .99 cents a week! That's less than a cup of coffee at MacDonalds! The monthly cost is less than most folks pay for a (one) cup of coffee at bigbucks! I think if we can't deal with .99 cents a week for something designed for the iPad we are in trouble.

      I will be buying the iPad 2 and yes, I will be getting this app for it, for .99 cents a week --of course I guess I'll have to tell my daughter that she will have to take some time off of college for me to fund the app! :eek: :p ;)

      I still don't know what the hype is about.
      What's so new about that?
      There are several similar projects out there alreay (I've also subscribed to a daily on the iPad).
      I guess the difference is that 30% of the profits go to Apple, which isn't the case with the others.

      I take in my news all over the place, from my desktop, to my iPad, iPhone, or plain old TV. Every so often I even buy a Sunday paper. I have no need to buy a digital subscription. One of my local TV stations also has an iPad app, so I use that too, and then can go their regular website too as well. So for me, would not be worth the subscription price, but it still seems like a very interesting app anyway, and those that get it-enjoy!

      Lots of people including me reporting that this app crashes repeatedly, interface is somewhat like the Sports Illustrated app demo we played with a year ago.

      Weird part is it prompts you to turn your iPad on it's side to read some content. Really awkward to do this.

      Would need to see the crashing fixed before I would spend the money

      Good thing it has a trial period for now! They need to work some things out then! I also wouldn't want to be prompted to read on the side-I pick landscape or portrait at my discretion.
