The UK version of Wired magazine launched its iPad edition yesterday, according to paidContent.
The edition, which costs £2.39 to download, is a one-off before the magazine “takes a slight pause to assess/iterate before moving to monthly publication”, Wired UK editor David Rowan said in a previous interview with paidContent.
The Independent’s new title ‘i’ has also revealed plans to launch an iPad app later this month.
MD for digital at the Evening Standard and Independent Zach Leonard confirmed to Journalism.co.uk today that the compact paper will be developed through an iPad app which he hopes will be released on the app store later this month.
It’s very exciting for us. We are being confidential in terms of the specific price but it will be subscription based.
It draws directly from the i itself. Given the multimedia capabilities we will be adding increasing functionality over time.
He added that the app would provide the title with a payment mechanism for quality journalism, with an Independent app also currently under development.
