As some of you may have already noticed, the iPad Insight mobile theme used on iPad just got a major refresh. The lovely folks at Onswipe rolled out the changes yesterday and I’m very happy to see this live.
Here’s a few of the notable improvements with this refresh:
— Faster page load times – because that’s just always a good thing.
— Support for more mobile devices. Right now it is optimized for iPad and iPhone running iOS 6 and higher and Android devices running Android 4.0 or higher.

I know we have a number of readers here who enjoy iPad Insight in the excellent Flipboard app. I love the app and I’m delighted that iPad Insight is a featured partner site on Flipboard.
This week the Flipboard team has helped me make the iPad Insight pages a little more awesome. I’m a big fan of the new Flipboard magazines feature that was added back in March and of course I created a few on iPad topics.
Now, those magazines are included as individual sections of iPad Insight on Flipboard. The three new sections are iPad Apps, iPad Art, and iPad Accessories.
Hopefully many of you are already enjoying the new ‘create your own magazine’ feature in the Flipboard iPad app. I know I am, and I’ve already created a few magazines.
Here are two of them I’d like to share:
— iPad Apps – a selection of some of the latest, greatest apps for the iPad, across all categories: http://flip.it/IgCDQ
— iPad Accessories – iPad cases and stands and lions and tigers and bears: http://flip.it/JmvND
Oh, and of course iPad Insight is a featured Flipboard partner site – so you can enjoy all of our content magazine style too. If you haven’t already added us to your Flipboard, please give us a look here: http://flpbd.it/ipadinsight
iPad Insight now has a public Flickr group. This is something I’ve been meaning to get setup for quite a while now and I finally got it done today.
I’m hoping this can become a place where all of us can share some of our favorite iPad related (or epically handsome Labrador related) images. Here’s just some of the things I hope some of you may decide to share via the new Flickr group:
— Your favorite iPad wallpapers and home screens
— Shots of your iPad cases and accessories
— Shots of your iPad-loving pets. Like my handsome Deputy Editor Dawg shown above, hard at work as ever.
— Anything else you feel like sharing.
I’m sure I don’t need to belabor this, but just in case – please keep your images clean / family-friendly.
The group’s got a handful of iPad wallpaper and case pics along with a couple Deputy Editor Dawg pics of course to get it started. I look forward to seeing your iPad pics whenever you have some time to share. Check out the iPad Insight Flickr group here:
iPad Insight is currently featured in the Tech & Science section of Flipboard, and of course I’m very pleased about it.
Fliboard is the flagship iPad magazine and one of the very best and most popular iPad apps. It was Apple’s iPad App of the Year in 2010.
And it provides great content to its readers of course. I know that many of you have mentioned that you follow this site in Flipboard. Well, now that’s a whole lot easier to do, and hopefully a whole lot easier for some new readers to discover the site as well.
You can find the site listed if you tap on the ‘More’ ribbon at the top right of Flipboard’s screen and then select Tech & Science on the sections list on the left-hand side.
You’ll also find it under Recommended if you do a search for the term ‘iPad’.
My thanks to Flipboard for including iPad Insight.
As you may have noticed, this site has had a bit of a design refresh to go along with its new name. Yesterday we changed to a new logo / header and now we’re adding a few theme elements that work well with it.
There are a few more elements still to be added and some fixing up to do in some places where things aren’t quite right yet – but I already feel very happy to have a fresh new look for iPad Insight.
Huge thanks to Jamie and Nicole, the dynamic duo at Shatterboxx, who have created the new header and worked with me on this mini makeover for the site. They’re great to work with and I hope one day I’ll get them to do a complete overhaul of the site design.
I hope you all like the new look. Our content and focus remain the same as always – now we just have a smarter looking home for all our insightful iPad articles. :)

As mentioned yesterday, we’re making some changes to the site. First off is its shiny new name: iPad Insight. We officially moved the site to this new domain yesterday. We discovered and fixed a number of big issues relating to the move yesterday; but I’m sure more will crop up over the next few days. Please let us know about any problems you spot in the comments, and we’ll do our best to get them resolved quickly.
Here are some quick things to know about the site move and some upcoming changes:
— There are redirects in place for all posts and pages from the old site, but I hope most of you will bookmark the new site at iPadinsight.com.
— Our RSS feed is the same as it has been – so if you’re already a subscriber you should stay subscribed with no effort on your part. If you’re not subscribed, what are you waiting for? Click this lovely link or the orange RSS icon at the top of the sidebar to make sure our posts make their way into your RSS reader.
— Our Twitter account was renamed yesterday – you can now follow us as @iPadInsightBlog.
— Our Facebook page cannot be renamed, so we’ll create a new one soon and let you know when we do of course.
— We’re going to change a few elements of the site design soon as well. It will not be a huge, revolutionary change, but I hope it will be a smart refresh that will go well with the new site name.
Thanks again for your patience while we’re making changes – and hope you’re enjoying Easter weekend.
