Bloggers considering the Apple iPad tablet will be thrilled by the WordPress for iPad app. The WordPress app for the iPad makes posting to your WordPress site (or your WordPress blog on the WordPress.com site) a snap.
While you can of course post to your WordPress site through the iPad’s native browser, Safari, it does have some limitations. For example, you can’t always scroll through a long list of categories to select the right categories under which to list your post.
But with the WordPress app for iPad you get full WordPress functionality that is optimized to allow you to do everything you need on the iPad.
Plus, there are some really cool features, such as being able to include a picture that is on your iPad. Pair that with the ability to take a screenshot (hold down the home button and the power key at the same time) and you get something like this (this is a screenshot of our writing this very article on the iPad right now):

Imagine being able to read full articles right in your email, or on your phone, without ever having to click through to the website unless you want to! Just $1 a month and you can cancel at any time!
In fact, about the only thing that we found that we could fault the iPad WordPress app for is that you can’t select, cut, or paste in it. (By the way, to move the cursor down below the bottom of your editing box, hold your finger on the screen until the little magnifying lens appears and then drag it to the bottom and it will scroll down towards (and to) the bottom of your text box.
For the price (free!) it’s a great app.

No Paywall Here!
The Internet Patrol is and always has been free. We don't hide our articles behind a paywall, or restrict the number of articles you can read in a month if you don't give us money. That said, it does cost us money to run the site, so if something you read here was helpful or useful, won't you consider donating something to help keep the Internet Patrol free? Thank you!
