News Corp Shutting Down

News Corp Shutting Down "The Daily" iPad Publication

DAILY ICON.jpegNews Corp. is ending its "bold experiment in digital publishing and an amazing vehicle for innovation" and shutting down The Daily -- launched only back in February of 2011.

According to the press release from News Corp. and obtained by Business Insider:

"As part of a digital restructuring initiative, the company will cease standalone publication of The Daily iPad app on December 15, 2012, though the brand will live on in other channels. Technology and other assets from The Daily, including some staff, will be folded into The Post."

A close collaboration between Apple and News Corp before launch, and lead creatively by John Kilpatrick, the publication has pushed the boundaries for what could be done on a daily basis for an iPad publication.

The last issue of The Daily will publish on December 15th.
