Wall Street Journal starts selling single issues through its iPad app

The Wall Street Journal has started selling single issues via its iPad app today, allowing even those who don't subscribe to the publication to get the full digital edition of each day's newspaper. The WSJ iPad app offers some content for free, but full access to each WSJ issue has so far been restricted to subscribers only. This changes today. For $1.99, you'll get the digital equivalent of on...

The Daily performance update requires deleting existing app

The Daily, News Corporation's iPad-only newspaper app, has received a maintenance update taking it to version 1.0.1. This update brings performance improvements, better stability, an improved introduction experience, updated Twitter login and posting, a change in image text concatenation, and a giant caveat. If you are already a reader of The Daily and just update your existing version to 1.0.1...

Read The Daily iPad-exclusive digital newspaper online for free

Depending which posts you read about The Daily -- News Corp's new iPad-exclusive digital "newspaper" -- it's either the most amazing thing to happen to print media in a long time, or just another ho-hum e-publication. Either way, there's good content to read -- and you can now do that for free, whether you own an iPad or not. Waxy.org's Andy Baio built The Daily Indexed, a Tumblr blog that pul...

Google may be working on a digital newsstand for Android devices

Unlike Apple, Google still hasn't come through with its own digital content services for the Android platform. We've known for some time that a Google music service is being worked on, and now the Wall Street Journal reports that Google is also working on a "digital newsstand" for its mobile OS. Major publishers like Time Inc., Conde Nast, and Hearst Corporation have been approached, though th...

Paper.li adds Facebook support, now lets you create newspapers out of Facebook searches

Paper.li, the online app that automatically creates a daily 'newspaper' out of the links shared by the people you follow on Twitter, has added Facebook support. The scope of the Facebook integration isn't yet as broad as with Twitter, partly because of Facebook's more complicated privacy controls. What you can do right now is create a 'newspaper' based on a public search term, like "WikiLeak...

New York Times Chrome Web app hands-on: jaw-droppingly awesome

Truth be told, I've never been sold on the whole Web apps paradigm. They're just websites! Very pretty websites, but ultimately... just websites. But it seems I was missing the point: while they're websites to you and I, publishers and developers see them as something else entirely. They see Web apps as beautiful, standardized, cross-platform tools for dissemination of their content and, of cours...

iOS 4.3 coming to iPad with newspaper subscription support?

We've heard about Rupert Murdock's schemes to single-handedly save the print industry by turning to pay-walls and the iPad before. Recently he announced that News Corp would be launching a tablet-only daily newspaper, cunningly called 'The Daily,' which will cost you somewhere in the region of 99c a week. What has also been divulged was that said tablet-only newspaper would be launching in "beta ...

New York Times iPad app updated with more sections, free until early 2011

The New York Times iPad app hasn't exactly been selling anyone on the future of newspapers with its extremely selection of content. Well, that's starting to change with the latest edition, which includes more sections of the paper, and even some of the Times blogs. On top of the larger number of stories, the app also includes more videos and photo slideshows. The design has also improved a bit, a...

A small-time Massachusetts paper is instituting a paywall -- for commenters

This one's a bit on the hilarious side, just giving you fair warning. If you thought Rupert Murdoch was ridiculous with his quest to erect paywalls around his online news empire, you're in for a surprise. The Sun Chronicle, a small-time newspaper in Massachusetts, is instituting a paywall this week that's even more pretentious than the likes of which we've yet seen. They're making people pa...

Study: online news now more popular than newspapers in U.S.

Considering that you're currently online and reading news, you probably won't be shocked to hear that websites are now officially more popular than newspapers as a source of news in the U.S. That puts the Internet in third place for news, behind local TV stations and national television networks according to a study from Pew Research Center's Internet and American Life Project. TV news still to...

The New York Times prepares to lose, I mean charge, its online readers

Haven't we been through this before? The New York Times is apparently getting ready to charge readers for online access. According to sources close to Times chairman Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. Two main models are being considered. One is the Wall Street Journal's part-free, part-paywalled plan, where users pay for access to a lot of the paper's content. The other, more likely solution is a metered...

Times Skimmer: a different look for the New York Times

It's hard out there for a newspaper. Even if you're the New York Times, survival still depends on finding new ways to get eyeballs on your articles (and your ads). The NYT's latest trick is called Times Skimmer, and it's a convenient, attractive new way to read the paper's major headlines online. Articles are presented in a grid, using the same fonts the NYT uses in its print edition. It looks...

Convert RSS feeds to printable PDF newspapers

RSS has finally caught on to the point where even my non-geek friends have downloaded readers and subscribed to a few feeds. The thing is, you can't really hand out RSS feeds at a rally, post them on a bulletin board, or leave them on a table where someone will pick them up and read them. That's why it's nice that fivefilters.org has provided a free way to turn your favorite feeds into printable P...

NYT Explorer shows off New York Times Article Search API

At a time when a lot of newspapers are shutting down or finding themselves forced to come up with a smarter online strategy, the New York Times is evolving its web content with improvements like the Article Skimmer and an Article Search API. The API can be used to build interesting applications on top of the Times' huge database of articles and information. Taylor Barstow's NYT Explorer is one e...

Try out an "old photo" effect that works like magic

Although I don't read Japanese, I know how to use Google Translator well enough to tell you about this awesome photo effect at Wanokoto Labs. There are plenty of tutorials out there about how to create an "old photo" effect in Photoshop, but this site does it for you in one step. The effect basically seems to desaturate the image, add some grain, and smudge it up. This results in something like a...
