New York Post denies access to site for iPad users
The New York Post has implemented a new way of boost downloads to their new iPad app. All iPad traffic accessing their website is being directed to a page instructing them to download their iPad app. No other access via iPad is allowed.
Okay this is bad. This is breaking the web. If no one used the iPad it wouldn’t matter. But lots of people use it.
I wonder how Apple feels about this? I can’t imagine they like it. I can see the ads now. “Get an Android tablet to read the web.” …
Stop the madness now! Please.
I noticed a couple of weeks ago that CBS’ 60 Minutes website does the same thing. You can’t read their stories on an iPad – they insist you download their app.
