Engadget reports this morning that the WSJ has finally revealed the official price for the WSJ iPad app subscription. The cost will be $3.99 per week, $17.29 monthly, which is very close to what Engadget originally said the cost would be. So what do you actually get for all that money? Well according to the WSJâ€™s subscription page, you get subscriber-only content such as Business, Markets, and Opinion, a seven-day archive download for reading offline, saved sections and articles for reading later, and â€œMy Journalâ€, for saving and sharing articles across WSJ.com and mobile. If youâ€™re already a WSJ subscriber, you wonâ€™t have to pay the additional fee, and will have full access to the iPad app, but only for â€œa limited timeâ€, the WSJ states ominously, without mentioning how long that â€œlimited timeâ€ will be. Three minutes, three months, three years? Who knows? Well the WSJ does, but so far itâ€™s not telling. So what do you think? Too pricey? Will you be subscribing or just going for the free app?
