Six Apart has released a mobile version of its award-winning TypePad blogging application for the iPhone.

The TypePad iPhone application is optimised for Apple's multi-touch iPhone display. It lets bloggers create new posts, edit existing posts, manage comments, and configure settings to send photos directly from their iPhone to their blog. The TypePad iPhone application will also work with the recently announced iPod touch.

TypePad users access the application by visiting http://i.typepad.com from their iPhone.

Support for the iPhone complements TypePad's existing mobile blogging capabilities, which include "post by email" and TypePad Mobile, a smartphone application for devices running Symbian, Windows Mobile or Palm operating systems.

In related news, Six Apart has also introduced a plug-in for its Movable Type 4.0 blog software which offers iPhone and iPod touch support. The plug-in – iMT – installs templates that make entering information into MovableType easier on an iPhone/iPod touch screen.
