This is my first blog post from the WordPress app for iPad (version 2.7.2) I’m seeing horrible ratings from users for freezing and the inability to include HTML through a visual editor. I agree with these complaints. The truth is that WordPress published this app prematurely.
I’m more annoyed that uploading a picture (removed) automatically published this blog post. I wasn’t certain I was going to publish a post but rather wanted to test the app for usability. I wanted to find another reason to use my iPad but unfortunately Automattic rushed this release.
Trying to save images on the iPad still has me stumped. When I click them to saved, they’re saved. But I’m not sure where to find them to upload to my blog. This may be the limitation of the WordPress app or the iPad. I’m not sure yet which.
There is absolutely no control over image, file, post, or publishing management on this app. Not yet at least. Hopefully this app will get updated quickly and often to include the critical features of the basic blogging needs.
I like that I can quickly pull up recent comments for approval but greater control over editing and deletion, spam assignment, etc. would be nice.
