We love WordPress, because it powers the sites that we build for our clients.
We know that part of the joy of owning your Custom WordPress Site is keeping it updated with fresh, engaging content to build a discussion with your visitors. You can create content from the full WordPress Dashboard on your web browser – but what if you’re struck with inspiration on a while on a long commute, sitting in your local park, or grabbing a coffee?
WordPress has the perfect solution for you with an app for iOS and Android, optimised for tablet and mobile. With this app installed on your devices, you have access to the all of the fantastic WordPress Dashboard functionality you love: adding new posts, editing pages, checking user stats and more – with a simple touchscreen interface and total mobility.
Post on the Go
Publish from the park. Blog from the bus. Comment from the café. WordPress goes where you do.
Watch readers from around the world read and interact with your site – in real time.
Your notifications travel with you – see comments and likes as they happen.
Manage your Jetpack-powered site on the go – you’ve got WordPress in your pocket.
First, you will need to download the app. After installation use your login credentials to sign in, following the prompts. You will then be taken to the main dashboard – look familiar? If you already know how to use WordPress then you should have an easy time getting accustomed to the app from here.
Using the app
When you first take a look, the new ‘Aztec’ editor might look like the old editor you’re used to on the WordPress site but with a stripped down interface – which means you know how to use it from the get-go.
What’s different from the desktop version, then?
- The general experience of using the editor is clean and zippy, with nice smooth scrolling and quick photo insertion.
- Built in spellchecking.
- It now features Undo and Redo functions just like you’re used to on your desktop, write without sweating the small stuff.
- As with all iOS keyboard enabled apps, you have the ability to use Dictation to directly convert spoken word to text within the editor.
- Similarly, you also have access to the iOS system accessibility features like VoiceOver.
It’s actually better for tablets too – with features optimised for larger screen sizes and with external keyboards like the Apple Smart Keyboard in mind. It feels like a true word processor.
