They’re telling iPad web users to download their app from the App Store — and the app requires a paid subscription. I think this is a bad idea, and likely doomed to failure, but it shows just how problematic the web is, financially, for traditional newspapers.
Okay this is bad. This is breaking the web. If no one used the
iPad it wouldn’t matter. But lots of people use it.
I wonder how Apple feels about this? I can’t imagine they like it.
I can see the ads now. “Get an Android tablet to read the web.”
