iPad users can now download the Guardian’s new app for Apple’s bestselling tablet.
Available free for a limited time, the app will support Apple’s subscription service with a monthly cost of £9.99.
Features include offline reading for all articles and pictures, the ability to share stories via Facebook, Twitter and email and access to related web articles via the app’s built-in web browser.
The app is also compatible with Apple’s new Newsstand feature which debuted last week with the introduction of its iOS 5 operating system.
Alan Rusbridger, editor-in-chief, Guardian News & Media, said: “The Guardian iPad edition is a new, fresh and appealing form of our newspaper content. By the time you’ve put on your coat and picked up your keys it will have downloaded to Newsstand – giving you a clean, portable, inviting version of the Guardian.
“The single daily download and the hierarchy of articles will suit people who love the Guardian’s newspaper content. To that we’ve added a selection of relevant web articles – a unique digital interpretation of our newspaper and yet another step on our digital-first strategy.”
The iPad app is the latest in a series of digital launches for the paper.
It was one of the first British news outlets to release an app for Apple’s iPhone, which it later migrated from free to paid-for.
A free The Guardian Eyewitness app for the iPad “showcases the world’s most distinctive and provocative photographs, providing a daily, visual reflection of global events.”
In July the paper launched on Amazon’s Kindle ereader and last month released a free, ad-supported app for Google’s Android mobile platform.
The paper has also launched a range of ebooks which draw from the paper’s coverage of major, in-depth stories and topics.
