WordPress has announced the launch of WordPress for Android (1.0). It is currently available in the Android Market. A lot of what we do on the web is now done from mobile devices, so it only makes sense that this would include blog management.
While it may not be the most convenient way to write a new post, users may find it particularly helpful for at least keeping up with comments and responding. The following clip shows what it can do:
Features of WordPress for Android include:
- Configure and manage multiple blogs
- Comment moderation including the ability to reply to comments
- Create and Edit Posts including categories, tags and photos
- Create and Edit Pages
- Get notified of new comments in the Android notification bar
"Users of the popular wpToGo app for Android will feel right at home in WordPress for Android 1.0, as the source from wpToGo has been used as the foundation for the WordPress app.," says WordPress. "wpToGo will be discontinued as all development efforts move forward with the Open Source WordPress for Android app."
There is a forum set up for WordPress for Android discussion. Users can converse about troubleshooting, weigh in on future development in the requests and feedback area, or test beta builds of future versions in the beta testing area.
