As regular readers know, we started FT Edit as an experiment.
We deliberately built a simple app to be able to add new features as needed.
From the start, the most requested feature was an iPad edition.
(We also got some pretty scathing reviews on the App Store, including one person who said it was a “shame” we didn’t have an iPad version.)
Anyway, the good news for iPad lovers is that we released an iPad edition this week. You can download it now on the App Store.
After speaking to Apple’s experts, we decided to make it landscape rather than portrait, but otherwise it retains the simplicity and focus of the iPhone FT Edit, and we hope its minimalistic design will help you to get more involved in journalism Inside.
As always, please let us know what you think at [email protected] and also let us know what feature you would like us to build next. And finally, if you like the app, please spread the news!
Preview of what’s coming next: To end the year in style, we have 12 days of good news.

Something to look at
The FT traveled to Coffeeville, Mississippi, which recently became a “banking desert,” defined as an area with no bank branches within a 10-mile radius. There are an estimated 1,600 banking deserts in the US, most of which include areas with large African American populations, which only increases inequality.
