"Mobile blogging"

Reviewed by / May 21, 2012

Wordpress is the official Android app of the well-known blogging service provider

Since smart mobile devices have given us the chance to read news and blogs on-the-go, bloggers have also find the need to update their blogs more frequently. This means, even when they aren't in front of a PC. Wordpress comes up to cover the need of creating and publishing post entries on-the-go.

First time you launch the app, it allows you to add blog hosted at WordPress.com, add self-hosted WordPress blog or even start a new blog at WordPress.com. Whichever options you choose, when you finish the process you'll get to Wordpress dashboard.

From there, you can add new post: input title, content, tags, status, edit, post format, publish and update. Likewise, you can add a new page, similar way. You can post a quick photo and video, check published or draft posts and edit them whenever you want. You can read comments and reply them (we have noticed some troubles with loading and replying comments). From settings, you can change username and password, add a HTTP username or passsword and set media image width.

What's more, there's a button called "Dashboard" which brings you to WordPress Dashboard (browser view). Finally you can check stats from the app. However, we've noticed some loading issues with this feature too.

WordPress on-the-go is a great idea, that will be probably more successful on tablets than smartphones. However, it needs to be enhanced regarding layout and accessibility. What's more, some options aren't available from the Android app. Some other bugs need to be fixed too to make it a really useful app. Anyway, it seems that developers are on the right track. We wish they keep it up.

Developer's original description available here
WordPress for Android puts the power of publishing in your hands, making it easy to create and consume content. Write, edit, and publish posts to your site, check stats, and get inspired with great posts in the Reader. What’s more? It’s open source.

WordPress for Android supports WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress.org sites running WordPress 3.5 or higher.

Recently changed in this version

With WordPress for Android, v. 3.9, you can add media to your posts and pages more quickly and easily, change the app’s language with the new language picker found under Settings, and enable two factor authentication (2FA). No need for nasty old app specific passwords anymore — they’re sooooo WP for Android v. 3.8!

    The latest update is not helpful; my password doesn't save on my phone (HTC one m8), so every time I go to the app, I have to log in again. Not a big deal for you, maybe, but having the brain injury I do makes this issue inconvenient enough to consider moving my blog to a different service altogether. Please fix this!

    Not impressed with the new way of adding photos, very slow preferred the old way of selecting where you wanted to upload or select pictures from

    Adding pictures to posts is a total nightmare with the app crashing and stalling my tablet when I try to add pictures. Total waste of time.
