    UK newspaper The Guardian has this week launched its first ever full iPad app. The app, which can be downloaded once a day, will be free to download for an initial three-month trial (thanks to sponsorship from Channel 4), and then after that will cost £9.99 per month. Alan Rusbridger, the Guardian’s editor-in-chief, said that the app would not differ too much in terms of its presentation from the printed version of the newspaper.

    When asked why the Guardian’s iPad app had taken so long to come out, in contrast to the Times and Telegraph apps, for example, Rusbridger said that the delay was mainly due to a shortage of developers, and because of the sophisticated nature of the app’s design.

    It's a very well done app. I will enjoy the free trial and decide if $20+ a month is worth it later.

    I got this app as soon as my iOS5 upgrade was complete. It is a very nicely designed app, loads of content, can even search articles by writer. And, best of all, I get The Guardian downloaded daily until 12the January for absolutely nothing... gratis... I'm very impressed. Makes Newstand worthwhile!

    Just adding... in the UK from the end of the free trial it will be £9.99 a month ~ a saving of £20 on the cover price, and no recycling!
