App Review: WordPress

WordPress_blue_logo.svgI should give WordPress a glowing review simply because I use their platform, right?

I don’t have to.

But…I kinda will. And it’s not just because I use their platform. I willingly give WordPress my money because their tools (across web, mobile, and desktop app) make blogging so easy.

Rather than focus on the website or the convenient desktop app, I’ll focus on the mobile app. The mobile app has its limitations (I don’t necessarily know that they’re WordPress limitations rather than iPhone limitations), but overall, it’s a great app for what it CAN do.

Not only aside from writing a basic blog post, I can also enhance it with rich text. (I know, I know. Whooptee doo. Big deal.) But I also like the ability to switch to HTML mode if I need to fix source code or have the option to mess with the post settings that show up in a sidebar on the web app.

I do wish I could add audio from my phone but I think it’s more of a matter that I can’t access the music files through my iPhone rather than WordPress not being willing to provide me with the functionality in the app.

The app makes reading other WordPress blogs easy through Reader, also built into the app. I can also check notifications, track my follows and likes, and read any comments.

My blog is relatively new so I don’t have many followers or visitors yet. But, that’s OK! If you’re new to the site or to this post, follow me not just on this blog but also through Twitter and Instagram.
