The Wall Street Journal has updated its iPad app to now offer the ability to purchase individual issues of the daily newspaper in digital form. Previously, the app required a paid subscription to any content at all. A subscription option is still available within the app at a cost of $3.99 per week.
Individual issues are purchased through an iTunes account while the subscription option requires the entry of credit card information. In order to comply with Apple’s in-app subscription service announced last month, the Wall Street Journal will need to offer a way to purchase a subscription through iTunes accounts by June 30.
