Testing WP 2.0 for iPhone

November 4th, 2009 | Tags: , , ,

No offense to the WordPress iPhone devs, but 1.0 was a pain in my ass to use! I’d write and entry and publish it and it would never show up. I’d have to do all sorts of finger-crossing and hoping that after 20 minutes of screwig around with it on a computer would I eventually figure it out. And while I don’t expect to be writing anything profound or fantastic on my cellphone, I still wanted it to work.

So here’s me. On iPhone app WordPress 2.0 with fingers crossed (again) that when I open a browser and go to my blog, I will see this little post.

Oh PLEASE work!!

Edit #1: Test one was a failure. The I set it to publish, and it shows status as Published. Visibility as Public. Shows the date and time of publishing, but when you visit my blog there is nothing. This edit is being done on a desktop.

Edit #2: And after adding the first edit, and updating the post, it shows up on on the site. *ponders* I don’t know if that’s quite as functional as I had hoped. Better, but still a pain. Not sure what’s going on.

    Hey at least you can get it into pending status, and you can write more than 160 characters!! 🙂

    True. This is actually better than the last iPhone app. But it’s still really annoying. And on the forums it says I should have the 3.1 software on my phone, and well, let’s face it, I won’t be upgrading it because it can’t be jailbroken/unlocked. No way in hell I’m switching to AT&T.

    Oh I didn’t realize that you couldn’t jailbreak if you upgrade. DUMB! Aren’t they supposed to be releasing the iPhone to other carriers soon? Will that change then?
