Figures released this morning by Médiamétrique/Netratings show that the site received 1.916 million unique visitors in July 2012, beating Rue 89 (1.476m unique users), one of France’s most popular websites, into second place.

After only five issues as a paid-for app, The Huffington Post’s tablet magazine Huffington will now be completely free to download.

The magazine was welcomed into the world with a rooftop party at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York and presented as a premium content product; a single issue was priced at 99 cents and consumers could buy monthly and annual subscriptions for $1.99 and $19.99 respectively. Speaking to reporters after the magazine’s launch, Executive Editor Tim O’Brien explained the decision to charge for access to content, saying: "We feel it's a premium product and it deserves to carry a price with it in order to access all the value we're giving people."
