PadPressed, a plug-in for website platform WordPress, can make any WordPress site function like a native iPad app.

The plug-in allows readers to "swipe to advance" -- navigating to next or previous articles using finger motions; switch between categories by touching a large icon associated with the categories instead of using dropdown menus or text links; and share content via e-mail and built-in social networking options like Twitter and Facebook.

The plug-in also makes the website "accelerometer aware," so that it can switch between landscape and portrait modes depending on the orientation of the iPad.
