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.
WordPress for Android supports WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress.org sites running WordPress 3.2 or higher.

So glad you fixed it. It was a headache to post the article and then going to the web version to set the featured Image
Freezes and closes down a lot, and takes a million years to load every new page I try to go to. It also has a somewhat confusing layout, especially since I have two blogs.
I love this tool
My site is about WWE news so this app helps me a lot when I have to add some breaking news on the go..... Better than Blogger's droid app.
One of the best blogging apps I've seen. Really well laid out and nearly all the features i have access to via computer.
