Apple’s new iPad is creating a buzz just like every other Apple product. There was over 700,000 copies sold in one day. WordPress announced a new version of their application called WordPress for iPhone/iPad OS 2.4. This is the first version of the WordPress app that is compatible Apple’s iPad.
There were no new features added to this application. This was the first time that WordPress did a release without additional features. Everything that you can do in WordPress 2.3 for iPhone, you can do on the iPad — but with an interface designed to take advantage of the new screen’s enlarged real estate.
With this new app and iPad’s large screen, you can now take advantage of the larger on-screen keyboard (or use an external keyboard) to type out your larger posts. This will certainly make longer blog posts much easier to write. You can also moderate, edit, or reply to comments. The large screen will help you to quickly moderate bulk comments.
Geo-tagging is also enabled in this version. You can let your users where the post was posted from if you so desire. But this feature would only work with 3G version of iPad.
Are you getting an iPad for yourself? Let us know in the comments. We will be getting an iPad when the 3G version comes out in late April.
