Six Apart Announces TypePad Application for Apple App Store

Mobile Blogging Application Gives TypePad Users a Revolutionary Way to Blog In-the-Moment

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) - Six Apart, the world's leading blogging software and services company, today announced that its TypePad application for iPhone and iPod touch will be available from the new Apple App Store at launch starting today. Introduced during the keynote speech at the Apple Worldwide Developer's Conference this application lets iPhone and iPod touch users blog whenever they want, from wherever they are, all within a fully optimized and beautifully designed TypePad interface.

"One of Six Apart's goals is to provide great blogging experiences in all environments. The combination of the iPhone and iPod touch with TypePad has truly brought blogging to the handheld experience," said Michael Sippey, VP of Products at Six Apart. "The introduction of TypePad for iPhone, as well as our other mobile blogging applications, means bloggers are no longer confined to their desks, rather they can effortlessly blog their stories and photos as they are experiencing them out in the world."

Using TypePad for iPhone, bloggers can easily create a blog post from their iPhone, save it for later editing, as well as seamlessly publish to their TypePad blog. Users can also take photos and instantly incorporate them into a blog post, or search and post any of the images found in their iPhone gallery. With iPhone's revolutionary Multi-Touch user interface TypePad bloggers can easily maneuver around the application and publish to their TypePad blog with just a few taps.

TypePad bloggers who use the iPhone or iPod touch already benefit from an optimized iPhone blogging interface through their device's Safari browser at http://i.typepad.com. However, the new native TypePad application for iPhone rounds out their options and gives iPhone and iPod touch owners an even easier way to blog on-the-go.

At the launch of the Apple App Store today the free application will be available worldwide in English, and Six Apart plans to provide localized versions in additional selected languages. To download TypePad for iPhone, please visit www.itunes.com/appstore/
