Is Apple iWeb Coming to the iPad?

Remember iWeb? It’s Apple’s simple WYSIWYG web page design tool, and it seems that it has gotten some new features in the process. The newly patented application seems like a perfect fit on the iPad. If true, iWeb would join GarageBand, Keynote, Numbers, Pages and iMovie as productivity and creativity apps that have been ported over from the Mac OS X platform to the iOS platform.


Apple promotes it this way for the Mac, "Designing a website may seem difficult, but with iWeb, it’s easily within your reach. Create your site using themes. Customize it with photos, movies, text, and widgets. Then publish to MobileMe or any other hosting service. iWeb even notifies Facebook when your site changes and adds a link to your profile so your friends stay up to date."

Apple’s iWeb for Mac OS X has shipped as part of the iLife suite of applications, where it supposedly makes it a snap for one to design their own website. The app includes templates which provides “fill in the blanks” slots for adding your own text, photos, movies and other media. How would the iPad version be different? Well only time will tell. The app will definitely make it a must have device under an educational setting, while casual users might even come up with a blog or site which might go viral and attract plenty of followers in the process, who knows?
