WordPress (3.7) – Android App Review

WordPress (3.7)

Cost Of App: Free (Google Play App Store)

Is there a paid upgrade option ?: No

App Description: (See Below)

WordPress for Android puts the power of publishing in your hands, making it easy to create and consume content. Write, edit, and publish posts to your site, check stats, and get inspired with great posts in the Reader. What’s more? It’s open source.

WordPress for Android supports WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress.org sites running WordPress 3.5 or higher.

Visit the forums to get help with the app: http://android.forums.wordpress.org

Are there in App ads ?: No

A. Ease Of Use: 2/5 – Not as easy as you would expect. From a company based on the promise of ease of use. I highly recommend forgoing the Smart Phone App (Due to the small screen sizes) and downloading it for your tablet instead. I do have the WordPress app on both my Smart Phone and my Tablet. But I only use the Stats button/option and the Comment button (On my Smart Phone). But I tend to use more of the options on my much larger tablet.

But to be 100% honest. Stick with the Non-App version of WordPress. Unless you are really backed up into a corner.

B. Security: No impact to smart phone or tablet security that I am aware of.

C. Usefulness: 2/5 – Barely usable on most smaller Smart Phones. And borderline useful on a tablets. But don’t expect the touch screen keyboard to be as easy as your desktop or laptop keyboards. For the best results keep to the Non-App version of WordPress.  (Please refer back to A. Ease Of Use. For further explanation on the reasons for my score.)

D. Smart phone Slowdown: Some moderate lag, When using certain features.

E. Tablet Slow Down: Some moderate lag, When using certain features.

F. Type Of User I Would Recommend To Use This App: Anyone who has a WordPress blog. Would benefit from having this App on at least one of your Android devices. But don’t expect the same ease of use. That your gonna get from the Non-App version of WordPress.
