Once you have entered in the data, the system confirms by using the Site name defined in your WordPress options.
Once you click on it, it brings you to a listing of your most current postings. To start a post, click on the EDIT icon in the lower right-hand corner. There you will see some familiar fields such as Title, Tags, Categories and Status. If you click on the Categories field, it pulls up a listing of your categories on your site. Next we click on the field “Tap here to begin writing”. The iPhone keyboard comes up and you start typing. This is one of those times that you wish you could attach an external keyboard. I, personally, will probably only use this app for small entries. Once you have completed your text, the compulsion will be to click on the SAVE icon in the upper right corner…DON’T! Click on the DONE button instead. Clicking on the SAVE icon will POST your entry.
If you want to add photos you can by clicking on the Photos icon in the bottom menu. You can add from your Library or take a new photo. You can choose or take multiple photos. The one caveat is that you cannot manipulate the photos in this interface unless you’re up on your HTML skills, for me this isn’t a problem, but for some it will be. The app doesn’t have some of the nicer grphic tools that 2.5.x or 2.6 has to resize or add borders or add a link. Hopefully in the next release of the app, they will figure out a way to incorporate some of those features.
All in all I’m very happy with the iPhone WordPress app. On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, I give it a 4 for lack of photo manipulation tools.
