Update: the app just received an upgrade with many improvements.
While sitting around waiting for a doctor appt. I decided to try out this WordPress app on my iPad. It’s quite simple to set up and connects with either a WordPress hosted or self-hosted site. this will be great for blogging on the run. Or while watching baseball. The one drawback I see is there is no way to insert an image. The editor has limited but adequate formatting tools and a way to insert a link without having to type link code. It also runs on the iPhone.
If you are a blogger using WordPress and have an iOS device, give it a try. It’s free, after all. What can you lose but a few minutes which, in my case, would have been largely wasted anyway?
OK! So I learned a few things:
- You can insert images by clicking on the Edit button on a saved post and then the image icon that appears at the bottom.
- You can edit pages as well as posts. So you could use the app to update any WP site. Not just a blog site.
- You can manage comments.
- You can get stats if you have the Jetpack plugin (or have you blog hosted at WordPress.com).
So anyway, it’s even better than I thought!
