WSJ Selling Single Issues On iPad For $1.99

Posted Mar 23, 2011

The Wall Street Journal is going to start selling single digital issues of their newspaper on the iPad for $1.99. You can buy the single issues through the free iPad application. Dow Jones head of digital content Alisa Bowen said that these changes have nothing to do with the pay wall by The New York Times.

The limitation of the single issues is that they will get access to that day’s print edition. They won’t have access to the archived content in the WSJ app.

As of right now, anyone with a WSJ log-in can get access the website. But for $17 per month, consumers will get full access to all of the stories and will be able to subscribe to the paper through the iPhone, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry.
