WordPress Blogging on iPhone

The WordPress team has developed an iPhone app for WordPress that lets you write posts, upload photos, edit pages, and manage comments on your blog from your iPhone or iPod Touch.

With support for both WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress 2.7 or higher, WordPress bloggers can access and manage their blogs on the go. Since I don’t have an iPhone I can’t really review this app but have tried several other smartphone plugins to manage WordPress and found them somewhat difficult to use. But that has been over a year now and I should probably give them another look. Regardless, if you must blog on the go then you might want to give it a shot. Here are some of the features or fixes of the latest release of WordPress for iPhone 2:

  • A new, more efficient user interface that makes it faster to switch between comments, posts, and pages.
  • Various user interface refinements and bug fixes
  • New Comments interface, with Gravatars and the author URL, is shown in the comment list
  • Passwords are now stored in the keychain
  • Posts are now automatically saved and restored if network connection is lost during publishing
  • Added persistence, so the app re-opens in the blog you last used
  • Added an interface for manually entering the XMLRPC endpoint for non-standard setups
  • Fixed rotation-related visual glitches
  • Fixed errors where malformed XML prevented access to XMLRPC endpoint
  • Fixed edge case where local drafts were sometimes not saved
  • Fixed the order of photos so that they’re displayed in the order they’re uploaded
