Love it or hate it, the iPad is here to stay and the number of visitors to your websites from this new platform is only going to increase moving towards the future. Though a lot of iPad users access websites and blogs via the native Mobile Safari browser, it makes sense for publishers to make their websites a lot more iPad-friendly by incorporating the native look and feel of the tablet device. For instance, iPad users are intuitively tuned in to swipe to advance, see content aligned according to the way the iPad is held in landscape or portrait mode,etc.

Now if you are looking to incorporate these features to your website or blog, PadPressed is something you must look out for. Considering that a vast majority of blogs today are built over the WordPress platform, PadPressed is presently available as a plugin that will offer these iPad-friendly features to your blog when accessed from an iPad. However, the developer, Jason Baptiste, has insisted that a similar functionality shall be made available soon for other platforms like Movable Type, Typepad, Tumblr, etc. as well.

The plugin is not cheap though. It comes at a one-time fee of $49.95 that also includes all future upgrades. There are apparently a few minor kinks in the way the plugin functions, but those issues should be sorted out soon. If you are interested, check out PadPressed website to purchase the plugin.
