WordPress blogs get iPad optimizations, social options

updated 06:20 am EDT, Fri March 25, 2011

WordPress.org members also have plug-in available

With WordPress seeing 750,000 page hits per day by iPad visitors, optimization for the iOS tablet was only a matter of time. It arrived today, as Automattic and Onswipe have jointly launched iPad optimization for all 18 million WordPress hosted blogs and a plug-in for self-hosted WordPress.org sites. The design includes a loading screen, cover image and homescreen icon capability for saving a blogger's location as an app icon on the user's homescreen.

The optimizations can be turned on or off by individual bloggers, who can also choose display options like 9 skin colors and selectable fonts. They can upload specific logos or photos for their cover as well.

Visitors to each blog see the full blog post with a commenting interface. Social tools for sharing with Facebook, Twitter and WordPress are also included in the optimization.
