Wall Street Journal Puts Paid Content on Your iPhone for Free


iPhone/iPod touch only: In a standard browser, the Wall Street Journal’s content costs $103 per year, apart from any work-arounds. The Journal’s new iPhone app, however, seems to knock down the pay wall entirely.

Similar to the BlackBerry app released last summer, the WSJ iPhone app’s home screen provides scrolling headlines and thumbnail images of that day’s Journal content in a few different categories—”What’s News,” “Markets,” and “Editors’ Picks.” Hit “More,” however, and you get pretty much every category covered in the dead tree version. You can also tune into the Journal’s videos and streaming radio content from the app, and just one bottom banner ad seems to be the only monetizing content you’ll have to read around.

The WSJ app is a free download, requires an iPhone or iPod touch running at least the 2.2 firmware.

I spent a fair amount of time with the app last night and this morning, and I’m very impressed so far.  Hit the jump for some of my thoughts, and lots of screencaps showing off the rich content this app offers …
