News Corp has launched what it calls the first national daily news publication built from the ground up for Apple's tablet.

Of course, it is only available for US-based subscribers at the moment, but it is possible an international roll-out could follow if the project is successful.

The Daily is also significant for the future of subscription-based apps on the iPad, with Apple having to introduce new features into iTunes to accommodate the News Corp app.

We take a hands-on look at The Daily in this video provided by our US-based colleagues at the IDG News Service.
