New HTML5 Version of Twitter For iPad
Twitter has just launched a HTML5-based Twitter.com for iPad.
The app is improved over the old one-paned experience of the Twitter mobile site on the tablet. It is also a hybrid of Twitter.com and the mobile apps and was based on Twitter’s HTML5 client for iPhone and Android.
” The HTML5 app provides a great option for people who prefer to use the browser over native apps. Its two-column view is consistent with the Twitter experience you are used to(on Twitter.com) , and it takes advantage of touch gestures and other device capabilities.”said Twitter representative Carolyn Penner.
In the meantime, their rival Facebook is also planning its own HTML5 initiative Project Spartan.
The app will be a accessible within the week.
