Testing the latest iOS WordPress app

I am sitting outside using the iOS dictation feature to dictate this blog post via the iOS WordPress app. Like word press itself, I am pleased to find that for the most part, the iOS app is accessible. One weird exception, is that on the post compose screen, the title field and content fields seem to be reversed such that voiceover encounters the content field before encountering the title field. Certainly, this does not make the app unusable, however, it is a bit strange and is something I will definitely be reporting.

So why use the iOS app? For one thing, it’s a very convenient way to compose posts while on the go. You can also read and moderate comments and blogs that you follow. Another neat feature is that you can receive a push notification whenever someone comments, or otherwise interacts with a post. When you take into consideration that, like WordPress itself, the app is free, it makes for a very neat mobile blogging system. If you have a word press blog and haven’t tried it yet, definitely download the iOS app. I’m not sure exactly who to thank, but someone has clearly spent a great deal of time ensuring the app is accessible, something I definitely appreciate.
