We now have the official price for the WSJ iPad app subscription: $3.99 per week with a monthly credit card charge of $17.29. For that price you get subscriber-only content areas like Business and Markets with access to a 7 day archive that can be downloaded and read at any time.
It also offers personalization features and you can save sections and articles for later reading. Without the subscription, the free WSJ iPad app will give you top articles and market data. Here’s the strange thing, a subscription to both the print and online versions of the Wall Street Journal will currently cost you just $2.69 per week (plus 2 weeks free) for a monthly bill of $11.67.
I want some of what Murdoch is smoking.
