Nice layout, crappy content
After a quick flip through all of the pages in the first issue of The Daily, it's clear that Murdoch is aiming at the lowest-common-denominator news reader. This is scarcely better than a free paper, and is full of crap like gossip, sports and non-news. I found perhaps two articles that I'd read in the entire thing.
However, the interface and implementation are quite good, and deserve to be considered by publishers of other newspapers and magazines who want to sell content on the iPad.
This may get readers, given it's relatively low price, but it certainly doesn't have much "news" in it.
Looks great, but it's still by the guy who owns fox news
And we all know how that goes.
All style, no substance
The iPad effects are great, but the stories seem more like something out of Reader's Digest than a serious paper.
I'll be sticking with WSJ and FT for my daily fix
