Along with launch of The Daily came the iTunes Terms and Conditions update that will no doubt help the digital newspaper industry by making it possible for in-App subscriptions of publications.

It explains how subscriptions can be managed and how features like auto-renew can be turned on and off.

Here is a description of the new addition grabbed from the terms:

"A new 'In-App Subscriptions' section has been added to the Terms and Conditions to explain how in-app subscriptions auto-renew, how the auto-renewal can be managed and turned off, and that we may request permission to provide personal information to the Licensor for marketing purposes which, if declined, will not affect your purchase."

We hope to see more interesting subscription plans in the future as publications start offering them within the App. It's been a pain in the past, and has often been the only reason (along with pricing) that it's been very hard to want to purchase a magazine on the iPad.
