News Corps “The Daily” for Apple’s iPad : Details

In a leak somewhat reminiscent of a Microsoft launch event (i.e. What we are all waiting to hear leaks 5 minutes before the event!) details of News Corp’s “The Daily” digital newspaper for the iPad have been outed by Gizmodo – who ironically were not invited to the event!

The list of features sounds pretty good, if News Corp can keep the quality up…

  • Over 100 pages of original news, life, entertainment, opinion and sports –
  • every single day of the year
  • Original video content
  • A selection of articles read aloud
  • 360 degree photos you can explore by swiping
  • Immersive photography
  • Interactive charts, info-graphics and clickable ‘hot spots’
  • The option to save articles to read later
  • Web-friendly versions of articles you can share via Twitter, Facebook and email
  • In-app comments – including audio comments
  • Your local weather
  • Your favorite sports teams’ scores, news and feeds
  • Crossword and Sudoku puzzles

More details over at Gizmodo and at the upcoming live event we have already linked to.
