WORDPRESS [TOUCHPAD] – REVIEW (81%)

15 Jul

WordPress is a blog editing tool released by WordPress themselves.

I am a big user of WordPress having my own WordPress blog and also helping several people with their own sites, so I have used the web interface and the iPad application over the last few years.

The webOS version is simple to set up (if you have an existing blog) and then easy to navigate when you are up and running.

The application opens to a three panel view. The left side is the site with the various options (comments, posts, pages, stats and drafts), the middle is the overview of the selected option (with an option to add new), with the right side showing the details, allowing you to then edit, view or deleted the selection post etc.

When you add a new post, then a new card is opened and you are give a new post screen (unlike the iPad version, you can have several of these open.) From here you have a clean screen with title and details.

The user interface is very good with screen layout well, and it allows you to get the settings via a button (side bar in screen shoot out of the way) to show or hide.

On the upside:

  • Easy to use interface.
  • Simple to add links and images.
  • Multi-tasking helps to add things for other locations.

On the downside:

  • As you type especially the start of the blog the base of letters hide.
  • Difficult to highlight in the body text something you want to edit.
  • When you click on title, the keyboard my not appear, so you have to click on the body to get the keyboard to appear.
  • Sometimes loses your blog deals (after reboot I believe) so you have to log in again.

Overall, I really like this application, it is one of the best webOS applications I have used so far. If you are a WordPress user it is a must have and best of all free. Hopefully some of the issues can be addressed in future releases.
