Another Free Month for The Times, The Sunday Times iPad Subscribers

The Times and The Sunday Times will once again offer their iPad subscribers one free month as the newspapers launch version 1.4.1 of their app, which will “resolve the previous issues you may have experienced, including local date and time settings and unexpected freezing of the application,” paidContent reported.

Executive editor Danny Finkelstein sent this email to subscribers, via paidContent:

We have been able to make sure this innovative product overcomes some of the technical teething problems that are inevitable on a new device like the iPad. But we know that there is more to do. Our next update will make the product more stable, fix bugs, and help prevent crashes. Technical improvements will also help avoid the late delivery of editions, as experienced on Monday.

paidContent reports that the two newspapers have approximately 12,500 iPad subscribers. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
