Press+ offers its first newspaper iPad subscription

Newspapers & Technology

Journalism Online's paid content system Press+ has enabled its first iPad subscription package for a newspaper client. Press+, which administers paywalls and user registration for news sites, now enables subscribers of the Daily Herald in suburban Chicago to sign in to the paper's iPad app as well. (The app can be downloaded for free.) That option allows publishers to own subscriber data and avoid Apple's 30 percent royalty on iTunes sales (although Journalism Online collects as much as 20 percent for its service).
