I've heard a few different people express concerns about the apps for reading popular news publications. Besides getting a richer experience than available on the web (which is seldom the case), what's in it for readers? The concern is that these publications want to pull readers into a controlled environment without a bookmark menu or Google search prompt to lure them elsewhere. The lack of article comments (in all the ones I've looked at so far) and the ability to link to an article your reading are also drawbacks, only I'm not sure if the publishers see those as desirable or not.
