Financial Times Passes 2 Million Users for Its HTML5 Web App
Posted: 4/24/2012 | By: Stuart Dredge | guardian.co.uk
The Financial Times has attracted more than 2m users to its HTML5 web-app, 10 months after its launch.
The app was launched in June 2011 in response to Apple's introduction of new rules governing subscription-based iOS apps.
sticking point for the FT was less about Apple's demand for a 30% cut
of subscription revenues for people signing up from its native app, and
more about a lack of access to data on those subscribers.
