TIME Intros iPad at $4.99 a Week

TIME introduced its TIME app for the iPad on Friday. The publisher plans to include multimedia content in the electronic version of its magazine, but instead of offering in-app purchasing for weekly editions, users will have to repurchase the app each week.

TIME for the iPad will include all of the content from the weekly print edition of the magazine, along with photo slideshows, videos, live news feeds, and content from the publisher’s international editions of the magazine.

The iPad version of the TIME app isn’t available yet in the App Store, although the publisher plans to make it available in time for Saturday’s iPad launch. The free TIME Mobile app for the iPhone, however, is currently available.
