NoW launches iPad app

Rupert Murdoch’s digital revolution continues apace with the launch of News of the World’s iPad-only app this weekend.

Sunday’s download will be available for free but will cost £1.19 thereafter – 19p more than the print version.
According to paidContent, it will replicate the layout of all 128 pages of the traditional product (plus pull-outs), “each of which is slow to load and must be zoomed in on before text can be easily read”.
