Glasgow: Running a WordPress blog or website is now mobile. No longer do you have to experience the restricted browser version of the platform on iOS or Android devices as the WordPress app from Automattic has entered. With a latest update that has cleaned up the interface making it yet more efficient, you can now post and manage blogs while moving ahead.
The WordPress app works for iOS devices including iPhone, iPhone 5 (with version 3.1.4) and the iPad, it doesn’t end there due to the reality that Android devices are supported too. Similar to most website apps, not all the features have been translated to mobile but it is adequate for almost all uses. Managing blogs, comments or writing and updating posts is a breeze, and you can access blogs hosted on WordPress.com as well as self-hosted WordPress blogs. Creating a blog from the app or following other blogs is feasible too.
A sidebar is featured within the app that is the key to accessing pages, posts, statistics, comments and certainly the WordPress dashboard. The app takes advantage of the devices camera, with a choice to post a blog with a photo from the picture library on the device or by the camera. Camera functionality is a welcome trait, allowing photo blogging be as easy and available as Instagram but as addictive as Tumblr.
Typing your post in the text field is flexible with categories and tags in parallel with what you have defined in the blog. Certainly some things are a little limited in comparison to the browser version when uploading blogs. The only prominent flaw is the lack of support for excerpts, custom fields or to set featured images with only the body field left available. Changing fonts into italic, bold etc along with previewing posts is incorporated though.
If all the features of the browser platform of WordPress are significant to you then the app won’t accomplish your needs, however, it is a well-tailored, easy to use mobile version that lets blogging on the spot and on the go. Setting up your own blog or website is now reasonable in the palm of your hand and expressing yourself has become truly mobile. The WordPress app is a striking tool for those who run blogs or websites. Also, it’s completely free!
