    Can anyone answer if I have multiple iPads in my family, can I use the same subscription on all of them for The Daily App? I use the same apple id on them all so purchasing apps is a one time thing for all of them. Not sure about how the subscription works, however. Is it tied to the apple id, or is there a hardware id check as well?

    I think it's per device, unfortunately:

    I actually think you can have one subscription for multiple iPads

    According to the Apple Support Documents:

    Replenishable in app purchases and subscriptions cannot be downloaded again for free, and must be repurchased. Examples include but are not limited to: extra ammo, additional health, extra experience points, or other one-time services.



    Non-replenishable in app purchases can be downloaded again for free. Examples include: bonus game levels, a map/city guide, a daily news subscription, or other recurring services. ​


    It sounds to me as though The Daily matches more of the second one which can be downloaded again for free and not the first one which cannot.

    Hope you're right

    I am waiting until people are actually signing up to see if this works. Hope it works for multiple iPads. It would be closer to a traditional paper newspaper model whereby multiple members in a family could read.
