Apple and News Corporation have delayed the launch of The Daily, the first iPad only newspaper app.
Sources cited by All Things D inform that its launch has been put on hold owing to a publications subscription service being primed for Apple iTunes. Apple wants to tweak the platform further before launching it alongside 'The Daily' iPad app.
The app is to feature a new "push" system, where readers will be charged either on a weekly or monthly basis, and would receive a new edition of the ipaper every morning.
News Corp. Rupert Murdoch has been backing the project heavily in recent months, claiming that the publication was his "No. 1 most exciting project" and would be a "game changer".
A member of News Corp's PR team confirmed the delay but failed to provide more details. Apple is yet to comment.
