So you’ve plopped down $499 (or more) for a shiny new iPad from Apple. You’ve connected iTunes to the device and now you’ve visited the App Store. But now comes the question: How much more will you pay for news apps? Some of them are free, like the USA Today app, while some offer limited selection like the New York Times app, eventually charging you for the app or for regular content updates (e.g. the Time magazine app). So how much would you shell out for news apps? You can answer the poll below or give a more detailed answer in comments. And if you are sick of reading about the iPad, let us know that too!
