The Economist launches iPhone, iPad and iPod touch editions

19 Nov

The Economist has become the latest magazine to hit Apple’s App Store as an e-magazine. The app is available for free on the App Store and individual editions are priced at $5.99. Existing subscribers of the print or online editions can access the entire magazine without paying additional fee by entering their subscription credentials. The iOS app for The Economist also features audio versions of every article read by professional newscasters. Once downloaded, the edition is stored on the device, which can be read even without an Internet connection. We wonder how long would we have to wait before Indian media houses launch proper iOS editions without piggybacking on solutions like Xinio.
