"When the iPad-only news subscription app The Daily launched, it debuted on the App Store with a free two week trial courtesy of Verizon. Today, it has emerged that the free trial has been extended until February 28 as News Corp. awaits the release of Apple's iOS 4.3 firmware update."
Two more weeks than they initially offered, so that's a bonus. Some financials for this app are that it cost $30 million to set up and will cost approximately $500,000 per week to keep afloat. That is a lot of subscriptions, and while some of the interface is rather clunky for me, I do enjoy the quality of the writing.
