News Corporation launched its 'iPad newspaper' the Daily today, with Rupert Murdoch pledging to "push the boundaries of reporting".

The Daily, which offers news, features, photography, audio, video, and graphics, as well as social feeds and real time data, will be led by editor-in-chief Jesse Angelo and publisher Greg Clayman.

It is available by subscription on the App Store and will be billed directly to an iTunes account at a cost of 99 cents a week or $39.99 for an annual subscription.

According to a release from News Corp the Daily will publish up to 100 pages focused on six key areas including news, sports, gossip and celebrity.

The new publication has bureaux in New York and Los Angeles, as well as stringers across the country, and, according to the New York Times, has around 100 members of its own staff.

"The ability to actively listen to and engage with our audience means we can continually provide an experience that consumers value in this fast-evolving tablet space," Clayman says.

"Together with our customers, our advertising partners, and the team at The Daily, we are excited to create a new form of media".
