WordPress 2.0 App for iPhone

Wordpress just came out with version 2.0 for its iPhone app. Few weeks back, I had deleted the older WordPress app from my iPhone as I never used it. I didn’t use it because of the complicated user interface and major flaws in features that I couldn’t do without like tags etc.

New WordPress app is better in my aspects. By the way, I am using wordpress right now on my iPhone to write this blog post.

Let me first list all the features:

– ability to save post as local drafts, drafts and published.
– ability to author multiple blogs.
– select single or multiple categories add new categories on the fly.
– select a publish date.
– add photos
– moderate comments for all your blog posts or just one post.
– preview your post.
– add new pages and edit current ones.
– add photos to pages
– mass edit comments

I am very much impressed with the new WordPress version. Even though I have Tumblr on my iPhone, I have never been a fan of it.

Of course I prefer blogging using the real thing but I think the app can come in handy if I ever have that sudden urge to write 200-300 words.

As you can see, there is only so much the app can do. I have some HTML knowledge and have been playing with WordPress for a while now. I know how to center a post, use paragraphs, make a text bold etc but it would be nice if it were possible to achieve it with a click (I am sorry if I am asking for a lot)

Nonetheless WordPress 2 is excellent blogging app and a must have if you blog.
