Working on your Blog from a computer in my opinion is the best way and easiest way. But with the introduction to mobile devices with touch screens it is getting easier and easier to edit your Blog on the go. Especially with the WordPress for iOS. Granted downloading more and more apps can clog your iOS device but this one is important, to us, if you use WordPress to host your Blog.
WordPress for iOS App
I want you to remember, we recommend doing your full edits online, you have more control, but you can’t get away from how easy it is to update your Blog from your iOS device. Head on over to the App Store and download the latest WordPress iOS app. After downloading the WordPress iOS app you will be asked to setup your Blog. Enter in your Blog address, username, and password.
After logging in you can then head over to your comments. This is a nice and easy way to quickly reply to your followers if you do not have access to a computer. Just another reason to download the iOS app.
If you head over to your Post you will see a simplified version of the full WordPress editor. You do not have full control, especially over custom fields and plugins you have. You will still need to head to a computer to enter information into them if you want to insert an excerpt or update an SEO plugin.
Don’t forget you can quickly add a new post, obviously without all the robust features from the main WordPress editor. But the WordPress for iOS app does come in a pinch if you want to quickly upload some drafts or push post and worry about the major editing for later.
You can even change the status of your new post or old post quickly, just in case you accidentally published a post by mistake.
WordPress for iOS app can be handy in certain situations, mostly for quick reply to commenters and quick edits and post. This iOS app is missing a majority of the WordPress Editor features I would love to have, but for an iOS app I can’t really complain. Don’t forget to download this app if you use WordPress for iOS. The WordPress team will surely be updating this with new features allowing us to do more and maybe one day, edit all of our post from our iOS devices.
