So, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the new iPhone WordPress app [iTunes link]. Not because I forsee creating a lot of new content with my thumbs, but because it’ll make it easier to add images straight from my phone and easier to edit old posts. Lastly, the team behind WordPress tends to put out good stuff, so I want to see what it’s like.
Setup is simple and intuitive, just enter domain, username and password. Choose how many old posts to archive on the phone, and then get writing.
Now, I’m going to try to add pictures from my phone. Hmmm, not possible to just add an image inline, seems I can only create a gallery. I’d like some way to add individual images easily. I wonder if they could do this by allowing you to hide the keyboard?
I like how the screen automatically scrolls to the bottom when you revisit a draft.
Overall, this is going to be a useful app and will stay in an honored position of page 1 on my iPhone.
UPDATE: looks like the photos were not added correctly as a gallery, but inline. Not good. Let’s see if manually adding the gallery tag will fix it.
Update 2: that fixed it. Now to delete all the code injected. The last 2 images show the frontside and editor-side of this mess.
