So I just downloaded the Wordpress app for my iPad and I’m really impressed with it. I previously thought that it was only for Wordpress hosted sites but that isn’t the case. You can use it if you host the site yourself like I do.
It has all the main things you’d want from an app like this. You can view your existing posts and pages as well as view comments and if you have the stats plugin then you can even view some of them on there too.
In fact to test it out I’m using the app to write this post now. It seems to work well. It there are a couple of things to note.
- You’re not going to want to type long posts on your iPad because it’s just not great for that and could cause some serious RSI issues.
- The comments section will tell you which post a comment was made about but there’s no link to that post or page which I think is an obvious shortcoming as you might not remember the content to which the comment refers from just the title of the post.
Apart from that though then yeah this seems like quite a useful app to have.
