Earlier I had the opportunity to sit down for a bit with an iPad and check out our sites on the device.
Looks good, but does it work? MPRNewsQ is iPad ready.
If you access MPRNewsQ from an iPad, you'll see our new site design and be able to stream the audio from a new page while you navigate our news features and blogs. While the iPad will not play Adobe Flash files on any site including ours, you'll find you can read, share, and respond to MPRNews.
I found that the site automatically adjusted to the iPad and launched the audio stream without a hitch. While listening I could open another page in Safari and navigate easily without delays. Naturally, anything built with Flash won't work, but I was able to peruse MPR's blogs, check out some news features, and type easily on the iPad.
