The Guardian launches paid-for iPhone app
- Dec 15, 2009
The Guardian has launched a paid-for news app for the iPhone, which allows readers to easily access content on the newspaper's website.
The app costs a one-off fee of £2.39 and is designed to make using the Guardian's website much easier on a mobile device.
The app allows the user to customise the Guardian content they wish to view to maker their own homepage.
The app features news, commentary, features, audio and photos. Video has been omitted in the first version, but may be added into later versions. The application also supports offline browsing too.
"At an early stage we decided to set the bar high, which hopefully means the app has been planned, designed, tested and developed to offer a truly amazing experience," said Jonathon Moore, the paper's mobile product manager. "The investment involved in this requires us to ask a small fee in return."
The app is demonstrated on the Guardian's website.
