The Times has sold 5,000 subs for the iPad version of the newspaper in just three days.

Available from the App Store, The Times costs $17 for a 28-day subscription and includes digital versions on the newspaper from Monday to Friday and some content from the Saturday edition. The Sunday Times is not included in the deal, which in those three days generated £49,950 for parent company News Corp.

Meanwhile, the Financial Times has seen 130,000 downloads of its free-to-download iPad app in two weeks since launch. Sponsored by Hublot, the app is free until July 31, when users will have to pay to read news and watch video content.
