Apple Removes Financial Times App From the App Store

Apple has removed the Financial Times app from the App Store after the publication refused to implement in-app subscriptions.

We have launched a new, faster, more complete app for the iPad and iPhone which is available via your browser rather than from an app store. We're encouraging our readers to switch immediately to the new FT web app, as many new features and sections will be added over the coming weeks.

Using the new app has a number of benefits:
● Web browser access – No download needed
● Automatic enhancements – No need to visit an app store for the latest version
● Reading offline – The latest edition is automatically stored for offline access
● Speed – Improved performance on most connections
● Greater range of content – Including video on iPhone

Go to on your iDevice to access the new application.

Smart move - I'm sure more will follow. Web apps can also build to be universal so maintaining one will be enough to serve most platforms. The obsession having apps on Appstore is actually pretty weird... can understand if the app is dependent on something like 3D engine but if it works on web - WHY NOT!
