Some say Apple’s App Store subscription service is doomed due to its consumer friendly features. Rupert Murdoch’s The Daily and New York Post show them wrong.

Daily, New York Post Top 10 Grossing iPad Apps

Rupert Murdoch’s iPad Publications Beats Angry Birds

Apple already revolutionized the music industry and mobile software business within the last decade. Can Apple revolutionize the publishing industry?

In January we reported that New York Post is cheaper on iPad. Rupert Murdoch has since then launched the iPad exclusive news magazine The Daily [App Store]. From the look of these App Store publications, something is going right on the iPad.

Both The Daily and New York Post are currently on Apple’s top ten list of TOP GROSSING iPad Apps as of today at 12:22 EST, beating out App Store success Angry Birds, MLB at bat, Apple Keynote, Apple Numbers, and QuickOffice. Wait, iPad users are willing to pay for publications that charge a reasonable price? Who would have knew?

Steve Jobs must be totally against the publishing industry from succeeding in the App Store.

    I love it when people predict the doom of Apple and its products, only later to be proven totally wrong, as I pointed out in my latest post on Roger McNamee who once arrogantly predicted:

    “You know the beautiful thing:June 29, 2009, is the two- year anniversary of the first shipment of the iPhone. Not one of those people will still be using an iPhone a month later”.

    I hope The Daily and other magazines blow every one of these silly critics away, and soon.

    • Oh yeah that guy is quite silly. Too bad there aren’t videos of Nokia and RIM folks making similar statements with the original iPhone.
