This is my first post using the new WordPress application for iPhone.
Overall I must admit I’m quite impressed! The app downloaded all of my existing posts easily and whilst there aren’t any comment, design or page management features, it’s ideal for posting a quick update whilst on the go.
You can easily add images from your photo roll or new pics taken with the
iPhone’s camera to new or existing posts – something which I imagine will appeal to a lot of bloggers. Minor gripe: there doesn’t seem to be a way to specify where the images should appear in the text.
There are also no formatting controls, something obviously made difficult by the lack of drag selection on the iPhone. I could imagine that could overcome by support for markdown-style formatting.
But for a 1.0 product I think WordPress have done a stellar job.
