WordPress released an update to their free blogging app for iPhone. My initial impression is that it’s easier and quicker than running WordPress in Safari (the iPhone’s Web browser), although you do give up some features like the WYSIWYG text editor. I’ve been able to moderate comments (for that it works very well), and now I’m test-posting this blog entry directly from my iPhone. To make sure it’s a thorough test, I will include a photo from my iPhone gallery (in this case, a piece of pizza with a Caesar salad on top).
Note: I couldn’t figure out how to publish this, until I realized you need to set the Status to Published (it defaults to Draft), then hit Save. Easy, but not particularly intuitive. Just making a note of this in case anyone else runs into the same problem.
