NO DELAY AFTER ALL: The brouhaha over People’s iPad app had some at least wondering about the real story behind its delayed release. Well, if there was a mystery, it seems moot now: According to sources at press time, the app’s launch was said to be set for early this morning.
The launch certainly will dispel the speculation — and refutes a story posted Wednesday by The Hollywood Reporter that claimed more than a dozen photo agencies that supply People with celebrity photos came together to withhold their work from the celebrity weekly unless they got more money. The Hollywood Reporter claimed the dispute was what led to the postponement of the app, which was originally supposed to come out earlier this month. A People spokeswoman said Wednesday, “The launch date has absolutely nothing to do with any photo agency discussions.” The $3.99 app will include bonus photos, as well as more video and integrated elements.
