I’ve heard a few leaks (here and here) about WordPress setting to release it’s very own native application for the iPhone. Glorious that they’re tweaking it to work with WordPress.com and the standard installations. And quite frankly, with the current trend of iPhone prices vis a vis its features, I think the addition of a “WordPress-able” feature will set the icing on that great cake. I really like the tag “WordPress and the iPhone… your blog everywhere”.
It’s bringing your blogging craves anywhere… anytime! Got the urge to write about that sunset you’re viewing now, well just pop out your iPhone and write about it. Publish it in seconds alongside that sunset picture too (!) no problemo.
I know, I know… pro-bloggers who blog like crazy may find the interface a little (ok, MUCH!) on the downside. I’d imagine myself typing a 200-word blog post in say about 15-20 minutes VS. the 5-minute usual post publishing I do. BUT STILL, you’d agree that the iPhone-WordPress merge does have it’s own sweet advantages. I chuckle when I imagine popping out my notebook to blog about the sunset AND THEN running off to find a hotspot to publish it. Hee hee.
Oh, it’s not available yet, no release dates have been said, all I saw was the video below… check it out!
Just a few steps to create that blog post eh?
- Type in the blog details (the title)
- Type the actual post
- Add pictures from your iPhone or media library
- Type in blog settings like (categories, published date, password protection etc.)
- Preview your post… and PUBLISH pronto!
