WordPress for Android 1.0 Release

We’re pleased to announce that WordPress for Android is now available in the Android Market. The initial release has focused on giving you the ability to manage your blog while on the go.

Features include the ability to:

  • Configure and manage multiple blogs
  • Comment moderation including the ability to reply to comments
  • Create and Edit Posts including categories, tags and photos
  • Create and Edit Pages
  • Get notified of new comments in the Android notification bar

Here is a brief video showing the app in action:

Users of the popular wpToGo app for Android will feel right at home in WordPress for Android 1.0, as the source from wpToGo has been used as the foundation for the WordPress app. wpToGo will be discontinued as all development efforts move forward with the Open Source WordPress for Android app. If you are interested in contributing to the development efforts, please visit our dev site at dev.android.wordpress.org.

So grab the new app by visiting the download page and if you have questions or issues visit the forums to get help or suggest new features.

  43. junthit

    I am loving it, wordpress on my hand now,.

  44. For noobs like me- you need to make sure “xml-rpc is enabled”

    do it via – under Settings -> Writing

    I found it thanks to the post link below-

    Sounds like you need to enable XML-RPC for that blog, under Settings -> Writing

  45. You need to test your site. It presents a mobile version when visiting from an Android phone, which effectively hides the download link!

    Why not just display a QR code ?

  46. [...] What I had written above was old news!  The new news is that the continuation of developing wpToGo, the team behind this application has released a newer version of wpToGo now known as WordPress for Android 1.0.  The price for this application is also $0!  Check out the demo video of WordPress for Android 1.0 after the jump!  Source.

    Is there a way to determine where in the post the photos go rather than all at the end? I saw someone who posted from an iphone and her photos were where they belonged throughout the post.

    • Dan

      Yes, when in your blog view with the three tabs at the top, select menu -> blog settings. You can then select if you’d like the image above or below the text.

      • meyergirl

        If I’m understanding you correctly, the pictures would still be either ALL at the top or ALL at the bottom, right? No way to insert picture, text, picture, text, etc.? Thanks!

      • Dan

        Yes, it is either all images above or all below.
