Buy The New York Times Subscription Straight From Your Device
Earlier this year, Apple was announced their decision to charge the publishers if they want to offer a subscription to the users. The amount of the charge is 30%, just like the developers. Of course the industry was mad because they have to give some of their money to Apple who almost doing nothing but providing the App Store. The decision deadline for the publishers were until 30th of June.
But a few days before the deadline, Apple change their mind. They will let the publishers to charge the customers with a payment system other than iTunes, but they can’t link it to their apps. But yesterday, The New York Times has released an update to the iOS apps to let the users to subscribe directly from iTunes.
Whatever it was, it is a good solution if you don’t want to sign up with your computer. For the pricing, you have to pay for $15 to have New York Times on your computer and iPhone, $20 for your computer and iPad, and $35 if you want it both on your iPhone and iPad. It’s funny because there is no different whether you pay separately for your iPhone and iPad or use the combo option.
