The Reader's Digest, on the other hand . . .

He may have meant that, But *i* mean publications owned by a family that has been known around the globe to tell falsehoods so great that they are banned from certain countries and considered a hate group that spews propaganda not seen since the fall of the Soviet Union.
It's way beyond "says things i disagree with" or "doesn't conform to my ideology" - Many things don't. Walking Magazine, Lint Collector's Digest, Us Weekly... none of them "conform" to my "ideology" - but none of them are on multiple government watchlists for making their readership LESS informed than those who get no news at all.

I suspect the Macalope of double dipping, just don't know who the other dipper is. The Macalope - The Magazine. Marco Arment. I smell a conspiracy. Or an anagram.

The Wall Street Journal is a mainstream news organization, as is the Times in the UK. Murdoch has a pretty diverse portfolio.

As for downloading...I have a subscription to a weekly sports mag I started reading on my iPad as soon as I bought my iPad nine months ago. As was stated in the article, it has to be downloaded. However, as soon as a small percentage of the mag downloads, it opens, ready to read. The download is completed in the background.
The Macalope is right. The navigation is the responsibility of the app developers; not the platform.

What caused me cancel was that they did "throw out the baby" each day. If you didn't read your daily issue each day, it was GONE the next day and thusly NO ARCHIVE was available for later look backs or research. That's no way to run a newspaper.

"The Daily, Rupert Murdoch’s high-profile magazine for tablets . . ."
For me, that is all I need to know. I NEVER watch FAUX News or any other so-called news or information shows, articles, etc..
I subscribe to, and read, many magazines and newspapers on my iPad "3", and my primary complaint is the "archive" availability. Some do (like Rolling Stone) but most do not have it.
I do read NYTimes, WaPo, Wired, InfoWorld, and many others on mi iPad, and it is great.
