Mobile Blogging: WordPress for iPhone vs WPhone

by on Jan.02, 2009, under technology, wordpress

WordPress for iPhone (hereafter called the ‘Native App’ )allows creating and managing blog posts and pages offline and sending the update to the server when ready. You may also choose to save as a local draft or save the draft on the server.

This first part is composed on this native app.

 * Insert with WPhone *
Seems like I can’t scroll down so I have to insert this edit onto the top of the post.

WPhone is a wordpress plugin that formats the admin pages for the iPhone. (Gosh it’s too frustrating not being able to scroll around that I’ve to switch back to the native app now)

Navigating around is slower than the native application as it has to load each page from the server.

* Editing via native app*
All your blog posts are listed out in the familar iPhone style lists and editing it is simple. I do wish I could upload images in the iPhone photo library like the Facebook for iPhone app. (Update: Just saw the option to upload picture option).

* Editing via Browser *
In summary, the WPhone has more options available than the native app. But the native app is probably a much better choice if you want to write and edit a blog.
