Guardian iPad: The publisher says its free Eyewitness photojournalism app saw over 50,000 downloads in the 10 days between Apr 3 and 13. Despite iPad only being out in the U.S., that’s a faster rate than Guardian.co.uk’s paid iPhone app (70,000 downloads in its first month). Eyewitness is free for now thanks to a three-month Canon sponsorship; a Guardian.co.uk iPad app is in development.
