One of the first apps that got on my iPad was 'The Age', it was terribly buggy initially but after a year or so it was up to scratch.
The beginning of July Fairfax the owners of The Age introduced a digital subscription. While I think paying for good journalism is the right thing to do, I also think that the options should be broader than what is currently on offer at fairfax at the moment.
I don't think paying $25 a month is worthwhile for me considering I really only ever read Saturday or Sunday additions. That means I'm paying close to $4 for the two days a week which I read the paper. This is on top of a $500 dollar device that I payed for, and it's also my bandwidth I've pays for it as well.
Having an option just to purchase just that day, is what I want. It's actually the fair thing to do.
So now it's the ABC, and BBC that keeps me informed. Or if I'm desperate I'll go to the library or a cafe for a physical copy.
