    I was disappointed to see that the £4.99 Sun app is top of the charts in the uk? Who downloaded that? I thought that iPad users would have better taste in newspapers.

    Fair enough, but I am told they are available elsewhere on Internet without giving Murdoch a fiver.

    That's actually surprised me.

    I thought the surveys of Apple owners showed strongly a higher educational and social demographic..

    True, but more than a few people are paying Hugh Hefner monthly for access to his website. Maybe some people feel like it's better if they spent money on it.

    I was admittedly tempted for about 5 seconds.

    Waiting on the Telegraph to produce their own app. Don't really want to go with The Times as i've never read it before.

    When I worked in Belfast, a colleague once claimed to be able to tell what newspaper anyone reads.

    He picked most others correctly, then he decided I read the Sun.

    I have never, ever bought a single issue of the Sun. I still don't know what about me makes me a natural Sun reader.

    iPad owners not necessarily the same type as Mac owners I suppose?

    I downloaded it, so far so good, but a couple bugs and some conservative bias :p
    Other newspapers should follow, right price and you get the full newspaper from 6am.

    It's only for light reading in the morning, if I want real news I'll go to the BBC website. ;)

    Might just be popular because it's new, like the wired magazine, it would be interesting to see the sales figures for the second month.

    I bought the Scotsman app for iPhone, but felt the screen was too small for a full newspaper screen, might be ok if they produce an iPad version. I'd happily pay for an iPad version of The Herald.
