The Daily launched with much fanfare in February 2011. The app was basically a national newspaper in digital form. It covers wide-ranging topics of news, opinion, gossip, weather, sports and more. It also integrates video and audio, plus interactive elements such as Twitter, Facebook, and insta-polls. We noticed users can respond to items with voice comments. Furthermore, readers can share articles with friends. Selling at $0.99 a week, it was a bold initiative to create a digital daily news publication from an old news institution.
While nicely done, it just didn't seem to resonate with consumers despite the high-profle tie in with Apple and the iPad.
