WordPress iPhone App Coming Soon

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a new iPhone while out in California last week, so I’ve spent the weekend playing with that. Coming from my Blackberry 8200 this has been a long overdue upgrade.

Sadly, the launch of the iPhone Apps store did not include the WordPress iPhone App (Raanan assures me it wasn’t for lack of trying). While we wait for the app you can always check out this video of the app in action. Some highlights of the app are:

  • Works with both WordPress.com as well as self-hosted blogs
  • Write and manage posts.
  • Upload pictures from your camera and photo library.
  • Preview posts from Safari.

It will be interesting to see if/how the app handles accounts for several different blogs. Having a “favorites” list of sorts that would store login info for multiple sites and allowing for one-click login into a site would be great.

Oh, and not to skip over the fact that I haven’t posted here in 3 months, I’ve neglected this seriously (a product of working on others blogs way more than our own) but will be picking back up on regular posting. Got some really exciting projects in the works now that I can’t wait to share.

Update: It’s here! Check it out at http://iphone.wordpress.org
