Financial TImes launches new HTML5 mobile site

Financial Times mobile site

One of the world’s leading business news organisations, The Financial Times, has just launched a HTML5 iPhone and iPad optimised mobile site.

Although it crashed on initial load the interface and UX are impressive. You can even increase your devices ‘app’ capacity to 50mb to allow for offline reading.

It’s interesting that the FT are still calling it an app even though it’s basically just an iDevice optimised site.

Annoyingly you need to subscribe for a year to read anything more than headlines. That’s $370 a year. Petty cash for those financial types that spend this kind of money on piccolos. Unlike the FT website, there is no free registration that allows you to view 10 articles every month.
