I did some testing earlier and wanted to share my experience with you.
There’s a key area, where WordPress lagged behind social networks and services like Tumblr. I’m referring specifically to posting updates direct from your phone.
It has always been technically possible. However, the experience was horrible. So, earlier today, I decided to see if the the WordPress iPhone app had improved. I wanted to know if adding links, formatting text and inserting images had improved.
It has. A lot
I last checked it out around a year ago. Back then, WordPress via the iPhone was fine for writing draft posts. But they would need to be edited and tidied up on a larger device. And adding links to text was, at best, really frustrating.
Today, it’s extremely easy and user friendly. None of the old issues are there.
No, it’s not a full desktop blogging experience. I never expected it would be.
But it works! It’s a breeze to use, too. In other words, it’s easy now to blog “on the go” straight into WordPress.
And that’s what many of us have been waiting for.
Now that blogging on WordPress is truly mobile, I’ll look to incorporate it into my weekly blogging. I’ll let you know how I get on.
More importantly… if you haven’t checked out the WordPress app for iOS or Android in a while, take another look. You too may be pleasantly surprised.
