WordPress For iPad Rocks!Apr 4th, 2010 | By James Lewin | Category: Apple iPad, Podcasting Software
WordPress.org has released and updated version of WordPress for iPhone – making it compatible with the Apple iPad.
The new version, officially WordPress for iPhone OS, isn’t a leap forward in terms of features – but the extra screen real estate available on the iPad makes a huge difference.
Where editing blog posts on the iPhone is possible, most people are going to reserve it for doing things like emergency fixes. On the iPad, though, creating new posts and screening comments is fast and relatively easy.
“In order to ensure that using WordPress on your iPad would be a great experience from day one, we decided not to add any new features. Nada.,” explains designer Matt Thomas. “This release is all about taking advantage of a huge 9.7″ touchscreen.”
“Writing and editing posts is far easier than before. Skimming through your comments and moderating them is far faster than before. And using the app is simply more beautiful than before,” he adds.
We’d like to see a WYSIWYG editor and support for creating and uploading audio.
Nevertheless, WordPress for iPhone OS is maturing into a very useful tool – and the fact that it’s free is amazing.
