Screenshot Tour: WordPress for the iPhone and iPod Touch

WordPress for the iPhone and/or iPod Touch is now available from the App Store. Keep reading for a brief overview with plenty of screenshots.


  1. Download WordPress for the iPhone / iPod Touch the same as you would any other application in the App Store (yes it’s free). Sync your iPhone/iPod Touch and it’ll appear on your springboard.

  15. By default, your post will be saved as a Local Draft – which means it’s on your iPhone/iPod Touch – not on your blogs server – yet.

  21. Tap the Photos button from the bottom list and you can add a photo to your post. Tap Take Photo with Camera if you have an iPhone and want to add a ‘live’ photo, or Add Photo from Library to add a picture from your iPhone/iPod Touch photos.

  23. I added a photo from my library…

  25. but when I tried to save it, I got an error (I don’t use the wp-content/uploads/ folder, and it has specific permissions set).

  27. All in all it’s a very neat app that will come in handy for creating quick posts. I don’t think I’d want to try and write a particularly long post using it mind you.

    Definitely pretty cool, although is there any way to make hyperlinks? Without that, and lack of cut and paste, I do agree this will only be useful for quick, short posts…

    Webo – yes, and it’s painful. The “text area” allows you to enter html. So you have to actually type in <a href=…

    Unless there’s something obvious I’m missing, which is entirely possible, but it’s certainly not “in your face” obvious.

    It’s clearly very early in its development. When editing a post that uses the <!–more–> function, you can only view/edit what’s above <!–more–> (unless I’m missing something, again).

    Bonjour,

    je poste ici pour faire partager mon expérience, mon frère a été victime d’une surdité brutale après une intense utilisation du ipod, au niveau sonore et au niveau durée.
    Je souhaite dire aux utilisateurs d’ipod, mp3 qui nous lisent de faire très attention, c’est dommage d’en arriver à devoir se faire opérer pour se faire implanter une prothèse auditive.
    Alors qu’il suffit de baisser le volume.
    En plus une opération coute très chère, mon frère va se faire implanter avec cette société ( http://www.envoymedical.fr/surdite.htm ) c’est pas remboursé par la sécu !

    Alors prudence !
