The Guardian has finally launched an iPad app. According to the paper’s Editor-in-Chief, Alan Rusbridger, its in-house design team sought to make the app as tablet friendly as possible:
It is, much more than the browser version of the Guardian, a digital newspaper. The design is clean, modern, luminous, fresh and immensely readable. The navigation is intriguingly simple. Each section (national news, international, comment, sport etc) can be scanned in two swipes – up or across. So there’s never that feeling of losing your way that can mar some iPad conversions from print.
The app is available to U.S. readers with a free trial period, then it’s about $15 per month. Subscribers have free access to the app.
