The Daily Mail has released a new iPad app that is optimised for use with the iPad mini.

The MailOnline Mini app, which was released to the App Store earlier today, offers the typical selection of news, gossip, sport, health and technology from mailonline.co.uk. The difference from previous apps, however, is that the new application has been optimised for use with the iPad mini as well as the standard iPad, with an emphasis on “clarity and size”.

The Daily Mail has existing iPhone and iPad apps and, for the moment, it is not clear if the MailOnline Mini app is intended to complement or replace the latter. The paper also has apps for Android and Kindle.
