CoverPad For The iPad Makes Your Blog Feel Like Flipboard

This is the news of the day for me. You bet I’m going to use this or something similar. Flipboard is the greatest tool out there to browse my twitter and facebook feeds. A post from TechCrunch by Alexia Tsotsis tells the whole; here is something below:

PadPressed, the WordPress plugin that makes your blog feel like an iPad app when accessed from a native browser, today launches its CoverPad, which takes the “browser to iPad app” concept one iteration further and recreates the paginated feel of Flipboard in the iPad browser with HTML5/CSS3.
Says founder Jason Baptiste on the motivation behind launching the app, “We thought, what’s the craziest thing we could do to push the browser? And this was it.” Baptiste hasn’t actually spoken with anyone at Flipboard about this.
CoverPad features include the Flipboard-esque 3-D page flipping, accelerometer resizing based on landscape or portrait mode, HTML5 caching for faster loading and the ability to add the your blog’s app as a native to the homescreen. All PadPressed integrations now have a full loading screen, removing the browser bar so you virtually can’t tell the difference between your blog’s web page and a native app.
