Free iPad Subscription to “the Daily” in Dallas – to Mar 21

The Daily, News Corp.’s brand new iPad-only publication, has released an update and extended the free preview of the app until March 21. The app was launched on February 2 with a two-week free trial, but users complained of slow load times, bugs, and frequent crashes. In a February 6 blog post, The Daily team admitted there were “some stabilitythe_daily iPad application in Dallas issues and bugs that need to be addressed in the app.” “The new app focuses on the two things you requested most: better stability and more responsiveness,” The Daily team said in a blog post. Greg Clayman, publisher of The Daily, said earlier this week that the no-cost preview would “continue for several more weeks, at least.” Today, the publication made it official, though after March 21, The Daily will be $0.99 a week or $39.99 a year.

Despite the stability issues, The Daily is reportedly preparing to extend its audience. Shortly after the publication was launched, a source told PCMag that a version of the app will be developed for Android-based tablets within the coming months. Multiple sources have reported this week that the Android launch is coming in the next quarter.
