If you run a WordPress blog either on your own server or through WordPress.com, your blog just became Flipboard-style cool on iPad, thanks to an awesome new feature which turns any WP blog into a beautiful, flickable animated magazine… all through the magic of HTML5.

Designed by Onswipe, the feature lets you flick through stories, tap into them to drill down through them and swipe to browse. The animations are gorgeous. Here’s an example, though you’ll need to have your iPad handy to see the magic.

If you’ve got a blog hosted on WordPress.com, this functionality should have already gone live for you. On the other hand, if you’re self-hosting a WordPress blog, you’re just a plugin away from making the functionality live for your visitors.

Very, very cool. Let’s see if we can get Leander to spring here on Cult of Mac.
