The New Yorker iPad app, strategically priced at $4.95/issue – about five times the subscription to the paper version – goes on sale today. Also, just to prove that they ‘get’ online, the post about the app and the accompanying story from the New Yorker don’t contain a link to the actual app (there’s a freebie). Also the entertaining intro video is in Flash (with that dude from Rushmore) which is also not so iPad friendly.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the New Yorker. I just wish as a current subscriber, I could have it on my iPad as well without paying five times as much as I’ve already paid.
