The Daily Free Trial Extended to March 21

News Corp has extended the free trial period for its iPad-only new paper, The Daily, yet again. This time the company is pushing the free trial period out to March 21.

The Daily: Still free

The Daily launched on February 2 with the promise free issues for the first two weeks. News Corp shifted the free trial window back shortly before the original deadline hit.

Once News Corp ends the free issue deal, subscriptions will cost US$0.99 a week, or $40 a year.

Along with the promise of more free issues, News Corp also released another update for the iPad app. The latest update offers better performance and stability, according to the company.

The Daily app is available as a free download at Apple’s iTunes-based Web site.
