The New York Post has decided to block mobile Safari users from accessing its website, instead of the New York Post website, users are greated with a screen which says that editorial content is now only accessible on the iPad through the New York Post app.
Of course, the New York Post will charge you a fee to use their app, which currently costs $6.99 a month, or $39.99 for six months, or a 12 month subscription of $79.99.
It seems they have only blocked mobile Safari, because if you use another browser app on the iPad, like Opera Mini you can still access the New York Post’s homepage, we wonder how many other companies will adopt these sort of tactics in an attempt to get people to sign up for their subscription based iPhone and iPad apps.
