Six Apart has announced the release of a mobile version of its TypePad blogging application customized for the iPhone. The application was designed from the ground up to be optimized for the iPhone’s touchscreen interface, letting users create and edit posts, manage comments left on their blogs, and configure settings for sending photos directly from their iPhone.
In addition, the TypePad iPhone application is also compatible with the iPod touch. Michael Sippey, Six Apart’s vice president of product, Professional Division, said “Providing a custom-built interface for the iPhone is part of our investment in further enabling on-the-go blogging.” TypePad users can access the application by navigating to http://i.typepad.com on their iPhone. New users can sign up for a TypePad account at http://typepad.com.
Six Apart also announced a plugin to provide a similar iPhone-optimized interface for its Movable Type content management system. Read on for screenshots of TypePad for iPhone.
