Now that Apple makes it easy for developers to accept subscription payments, a growing number of newspaper and magazine publishers are developing iPad apps and charging subscribers a monthly fee instead of billing for an app up front and offering free content. The latest big name to enter the iPad app space is Bloomberg Businessweek. The app runs $2.99 per month.
The app offers the full text of articles as well as pictures and supports landscape and portrait mode as well as sharing and search features. You can also use the app to view current market quotes — something you can’t do with a magazine printed on paper.
