Apple patent reveals iWeb for iPad application plans

New patent shows gesture based iWeb custom app

Apple to expand Mac to iPad app range

Recently filed patent applications have revealed that Apple is planning on bringing its Mac-based web designer iWeb to the iPad.

Having already transformed a variety of Mac software into hugely popular and successful iPad applications, the new patent filing shows the Cupertino tech giant is working on a version of iWeb for the iPad that will be “designed to work with gestures.”

In making it to Apple’s App Store iWeb would join the likes of Garageband, Photo Booth, Pages and iMovie all of which have previously made the jump from Apple’s Mac devices to its market leading range of tablets, the iPad and recently launched iPad 2.

Allowing users to craft custom web pages direct from their iPads it is currently unknown if and when the tablet-bound iWeb app will land with a confirmed launch date for the web customising application yet to be announced.
