The popular blogging service Tumblr has updated its iOS app (http://staff.tumblr.com/post/38347558114/tumblr-for-ipad) to work natively on iPad. The popular blogging platform had previously been designed only for the iPhone, only working in 2x-mode on the iPad. iPad support isn't the only addition, as the app now has an "Explore" tab to search other Tumblr blogs as well as landscape support for the iPad version.

I've been waiting for the iPad native tumblr experience since the iPad first launched. I will use Tumblr a ton more now.

One of the best native apps on the iOS. Period. And by far the best blogging app, and blogging platform in general.

I never minded tumblr.com on my iPad. But I'm sure this is a nice step up :)

How is "landscape support for the iPad" a feature in addition to "support for the iPad?"
