WordPress launches Android application

For you WordPress blogging hounds out there, an official open-source Android app has just hit the Market. You'll need to be running WordPress 2.7 or higher on the back end. From there, you just download the app, enter your credentials and type away.

Built on top of the popular wpToGo, WordPress Verizon 1.0 supports multiple blogs, comment moderation, post creation and editing, including categories, tags and photos, and you can be notified of new comments through the usual Android notification bar.

  • horrible interface. but better than a kick in the pants.
  • That's typical for an Android app then. Function first, looks second (hopefully). Twidroid is a prime example of this. Good for those like me who care more for function, bad for those who need a "quality" interface. I think apps like Tweetcaster and Beautiful Widgets may change this scenario, and that's a good thing for all of us.
