According to the folks behind Quote.fm, a couple of days ago was their biggest day so far. The reason? A couple of days ago, Quote.fm for iPad was finally released. Quote.fm already works well on an iPad Web browser. But, as might be expected, it works much better on a native app. Quote.fm for iPad offers the core functions of the up-and-coming reading recommendation site with the convenience of a native touchscreen tablet app. With the app, you can recommend articles to your friends and followers with a short excerpt. You can also follow other users to see their own recommendations or discover stories that are trending on the Web. If you see an article you’re interested in, you can read it right away, clutter-free. Alternatively, you can save it for reading later even when you’re offline. Furthermore, you can share your recommendations on Facebook, Twitter, Instapaper, Pocket, and Readability. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here.
