Features will include the ability to save articles for later reading, web-friendly versions of articles for sharing online, in-app comments, including audio comments, local weather, scores and news regarding the user’s favorite sports teams, and both crossword and sudoku puzzles. The app will also utilize a new “In-App Subscription” billing option from Apple.
