WordPress upgrades free app for blogging on the go

by Kate Currin

The free WordPress for Android app was upgraded thanks to feedback from faithful users. Updates include fixes to numerous, annoying bugs like unexpected app crashes, log-in issues and more.Most notable in the recent upgrade is a new comment feature, which displays comments in real time as comments arrive in your Droid notification bar.

In the mobile society in which we live, it's nice to have productive apps like WordPress to make social networking easy on the go. Use the app to blog while on vacation or update the company blog while on a business trip. Out to lunch and have a crisis that needs to be communicated companywide? Quickly upload a notification blog without heading back to your desk.

This open source app lets users write new posts, edit current content, and even manage blog comments. The comment notifications are great for keeping up with the moderation of your blog letting you respond in real time and engage the readers of your blog.

The app is well-designed with three useful headings at the top: comments, posts and pages. Pick your action, and post away. Users can also save posts for later. I love this feature for when I have a blog idea on the go. Instead of writing it down on a stray receipt, I can log my idea as a draft post for easy access later.

If you already use WordPress to power your blog, definitely download this app to your Android phone.
