The publisher turned to HTML5, having become disgruntled by the fees and publisher rights demanded by Apple, when submitting applications to the App Store. The FT subsequently saw its web-app user-base overtake that of the iOS version in just three months. 

Despite having pulled the iOS app from iTunes halfway through last year, the FT did keep the version running so that subscribers with it already installed could continue to use the application. However, with ever falling user numbers and a number of pressing maintenance issues, paidContent says that the publisher now plans to render the app unusable over the next month.

LeWeb 2011: Path will come to tablets in ‘post PC era’

Path was described by Morin as a modern journal, which can be shared with close family and friends via Facebook, Tumblr and Foursquare. The app is currently available for iPhone and Android, with Path having just launched version two of its iPhone app. Morin said that tablet support is not too far away.
