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 Â£9.99 per month. Alan Rusbridger, the Guardianâ€™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 Guardianâ€™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 appâ€™s design.
