If you’ve landed here on an iPad or iPhone (and I hope you like the experience) you may be wondering about the new and neat touch experience. Onswipe now powers this blog for iOS visitors. This is a different Onswipe experience than the WordPress plugin released a while back that can be activated for wordpress.com users and installed as a plugin on self hosted WordPress blogs. I’m using a much fuller publishing platform with more user customizable options.
If you are not using an iOS device, the image above shows how the site is displayed on an iPad.
I really like that Apple has changed the notification model. It kinda/sorta works in this first beta. Facebook and Twitter seem to be real slow in even native notifications, which may be part of the problem. I have seen mail on the unified list a few times.
I wish the iPad had built in weather and stocks apps like the smaller iPhone/iPod, as that would be really handy.
Hopefully there will be abundant updates from third party vendors that will enable visibility in the new unified app.
