Microsoft working on iPad apps?

updated 02:45 pm EDT, Thu September 16, 2010

Company currently iPhone-only on iOS

Microsoft may finally be working on iPad apps, a Twitter post by Windows SuperSite's Paul Thurrott suggests. "Shhh.... It's true: Microsoft is working on iPad apps," he says. The writer has not made any subsequent comments, but Thurrott has close familiarity with Microsoft, and the company already has several iPhone apps at the App Store.

Some of these include Windows Live Messenger, the Bing search app, and Seadragon Mobile, used to view gigapixel-sized images. Any new apps could potentially be simple enhancements for the iPad. The company has been relatively sporadic in developing for iOS, and is more likely to be concentrated on producing content for Windows Phone 7.

    OneNote?

    OneNote would be an excellent choice. It's not cluttered with features like Word and it'd be popular with students and anyone who needs to take notes.

    Bing maps, please

    Bing maps doesn't work properly on Mobile Safari or Atomic Browser. The birds eye view doesn't tile properly. Not to mention it would be great to lose the large Bing search bar, which wastes a lot of screen space.
