Ryan Tate reports that Steve Jobs is not satisfied with the limited content “Editor’s Choice” app that the New York Times launched on the iPad in February. Jobs featured the Times in the iPad launch keynote speech ad in the marketing effort for the tablet device.
In fact, the current featured app in the News category is The Early Edition, an RSS feed reader that sells for $4.99.
The Times has announced that it is working on a paid full content iPad app. Tate estimates that project may be being slowed by internal debate at the paper over the correct pricing for the app, and potential contractual complications with the Times’ Kindle Edition, which costs about $20 per month.
