Google Launches One Pass, An Online Subscription Service

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 8:34 am

Google has again faced up to technology giant Apple - this time by launching a digital subscription service just a day after its rival.
Called One Pass, the new system allows publishers of online newspapers and magazines to charge readers to access their articles and videos.

Media companies who use it can charge for full access or just single articles, and can also use it to deliver their publications through smartphone and tablet computer applications.

The plan comes just a day after Apple announced it was offering publishers the chance to sell content through its App Store.
Apple is offering digital subscription services through its popular App Store But while Apple said it would be taking a 30% share of customer payments, Google said it would keep just 10%.
