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!
I do my blogs through Blogger. What I find “clunky” (I wish I had used a different word) about it is the layout. It’s part of the reason I don’t post as many reviews on Film Threat anymore. I just don’t like it. I do believe I am in the minority, as you state, but I’ve spent a great portion of my life being in various minorities (I don’t like “Married With Children”, I’m a white heterosexual, etc.), so that’s nothing new.
You seem to be in the minority. Not that that’s bad. Just wondering what you find clunky about WP and what platform you prefer.
I use WP for writing for Film Threat, but I don’t like it for my personal blogs. I always found it clunky.
