The Financial Times has pulled their iOS app after the deadline for compliance with Apple’s new digital subscription terms. Apple requires that in-app subscription payments must go through iTunes. The Financial Times iPhone and iPad app has disappeared from the App Store.
“The FT iPad and iPhone apps will no longer be available to new users through iTunes,” stated an FT spokesperson. “We are directing readers to the FT‘s new web app available at app.ft.com. iTunes will remain an important channel for new and existing advertising based apps.”
