Mark down another major New York newspaper to add an iPad app as the New York Daily News joins the Times, Post, and Newsday on digital newsstands. Daily News readers can now access real time news and a full electronic version of each day’s paper. Daily News CEO Bill Holiber said the paper’s app offers a new dimension for audiences to connect with:
To address the needs of our readers who already love the experience of the Daily News print edition, we’ve combined the flexibility of a live app with the feel of the printed newspaper to bring a compelling experience. As the voice of the most connected city in the world, we now have the most timely, accessible and user-friendly vehicle for sharing that voice.
Subscribers can download the app directly from iTunes for $1.99 for the first month or pay $11.99 for yearlong access. The Daily News is also available on BlackBerry, iPhone, and android mobile devices.
