    "The Financial Times has pulled its iPad and iPhone apps from Apple's App Store after losing a battle to keep control of customer data obtained through subscriptions.

    Apple has recently begun to insist that subscriptions to apps that it hosts must go through its own store, giving Apple ownership of valuable data about customers from those transactions, as well as a 30-per-cent cut of revenues.

    The Pearson-owned FT and Apple had been in negotiations for months but ultimately failed to reach a compromise.

    Apple launched its own subscription service for magazines, newspapers, videos and music this year.

    The iPad tablet computer, launched 18 months ago, created a market popular with affluent professionals and has been a major driver of subscriptions to FT.com, which accounts for about a quarter of the FT's total sales.

    The FT's digital subscriptions rose 34 per cent to 230,000 in the first half of this year, with mobile devices accounting for 22 per cent of FT.com traffic and more than 15 per cent of new subscriptions.

    In a move to reduce its dependence on Apple and develop apps more quickly for rival tablet computers, the FT in June launched a Webbased version of its mobile app, the first of its kind by a major publisher. This allows readers to sign up on an FT website and then sign onto any device, including the iPad and iPhone through Apple's Safari browser.

    A shortcut can be installed on the device, giving an experience similar to using a native app custom-built for the smartphone or tablet being used.

    A version for Google's latest Android platform, which is widely used for smartphones and tablet computers including Samsung's Galaxy Tab, is expected in September or October.

    An FT spokesman said the company encourages subscribers to migrate to the Web-based app, which uses the open HTML5 standard that can be read by any browser, and is already being used by most mobile subscribers.

    The spokesman described the disagreement with Apple as "amicable" and said the FT still planned future apps for the Apple App Store including one for the FT's luxury weekend magazine How To Spend It this month."
