Testing WordPress for iPhone

WordPress for iPhone is an interesting App that lets you publish Blog Posts from everywhere in the world using your iPhone.

It supports landscape mode which I think is very important because blogging in portrait mode is even more uncomfortable.

With WordPress for iPhone you can create drafts, publish and update them later. It supports multiple accounts if you need access to more than one blog – no matter if they are hosted by wordpress or yourself. All you need is the URL and your username and password.

It’s the right tool for you if you just have to share some thoughts which you can’t shorten into less than 140 characters to fit into a Tweet. You need to be good at typing on your iPhone, anyway so I’d recommend to wait until you have your computer near you and use its full-size keyboard if you need some more words to say what you want to say.

Since I don’t consider myself to be one of the fastest iPhone-typers in the world, I declare this the end of today’s post because my hands are aching -_-

iPhone 3.0 is way ahead…even of itself

So Apple has begun seeding the new version of its mobile OS, 3.0, last week. Great that is. A day later, the iPhone Dev-Team released its Jailbreak Tools for 3.0 and last night even the new Unlock came out.

After a day of looking around for the best Twitter App to shorten a URL which I copied in Safari, I found out that neither Tweetie nor Twitterfon nor Birdhouse are capable of shortening a URL after having pasted it into a new Tweet.

‘Twasking’ for help delivered only one advice: Use free Twitteriffic for that.

Well, no.

How come you have to feel such geeky because of testing a bunch of Twitter-Clients until you find the one that fits you most, just to realize that it won’t be updated for weeks after the new OS release to finally support its new features? I don’t want to blame anyone, may the reason be the developer of the Twitter-App or Apple’s App-Approval Policy. I just wanted to say: sometimes an innovation is even more ahead if its competitors than, you know, the ads.
