A quick review of the WordPress for iPhone app

I’m writing this from within the latest version of the WordPress app for iPhone. The iPhone isn’t known for its ability to offer a great writing experience while composing anything much longer than a tweet, but I can say as I type this that it does feel pretty comfortable. It took me about 30 seconds to write to this point.

The WordPress iPhone app lets me moderate comments and edit posts or change the publish status of any post in my database. I can also easily upload pictures.

The biggest flaw is that there is no way for me to insert links without having to manually code them in from the raw HTML view of the post. This isn’t a dealbreaker, bur since blogging is all about linking, I would like to see it fixes in the future.

WordPress hosting BBQ at SXSW tomorrow

If you’re a WordPress fan attending SxSW (or you just happen to be in Austin), please join us for lunch after 12pm* tomorrow, Sunday March 14. We’re getting the BBQ from Rudy’s and the red velvet cake from Central Market. Yum! Come, eat, talk about the cool things you’re doing with WordPress, let us know what we can do better, gossip about Mark Jaquith’s new hairstyle, whatever. Think of it like a WordCamp without presentations. I’ll be there, lead developers Mark Jaquith and Ryan Boren will be there, core contributors will be there, plugin and theme developers will be there, and basically all the most intelligent and attractive people from SxSW will be there. You should be, too!
