Haaretz launched its English-language application for the iPad today, making it the first Israeli newspaper to offer this advanced feature for English-language readers around the world.
The Haaretz iPad app will expand the range of platforms on which Haaretz English-language content is available. The iPad app will bring together the best of Haaretzs widely respected news, features, opinions and blogs, as well as instant updates and news flashes from Haaretzs popular website.
"We are proud and pleased to be able to provide our readers with state-of-the-art access to our journalism, Haaretz publisher Amos Schocken said. We view our readers as our partners in the vital task of safeguarding the democratic ideals and liberal values that are essential to the future of modern Israel."
The app, which is part of Apples Newsstand, is free for download from the App Store. A digital subscription is required to gain access to the entire range of Haaretz features. This subscription provides unlimited access to Haaretz English-language content on all platforms – on the iPad, smartphone or personal computer. Digital subscriptions are also available to purchase on Haaretz.com, at the introductory price of $1 per month. (Our Israeli readers should note that since not all features of in-app purchases are available in Israel, they only have the option of subscribing through Haaretz.com, before or after downloading the app from the App Store).
Existing digital or print subscribers to Haaretz in English are invited to use the app for free by downloading it and logging in using their Haaretz ID.
