Back in December, the Guardian Newspaper announced that it would be launching a subscription based iPhone app, and the app has now gone live.
The Guardian iPhone app is available to download from iTunes, and it requires you to pay a subscription fee, of £2.99 for six month or £3.99 for twelve months.
With the new app we’ll be launching more frequent updates, offering a broader range of content and bringing you a better experience. This means ensuring we can meet the associated development costs.
We will possibly see many more mainstream publisher follow a similar line with their iPhone apps, and of course we have the new subscription based newspaper model which is being launched by Apple and News Corp in the form of ‘The Daily’ iPad newspaper.
