If you’re a blogger who sometimes needs to fix stuff on your site while on the fly, the WordPress for Android app (well, that is if you’re actually using WP) is a pretty good tool to have lying around your smartphone. And now the app has gotten a pretty large update, to enable users to go through followed blogs easily as well as give your easier access to 24/7 customer service.
Aside from being one of the most popular blogging platforms, WordPress also serves as a reader for both your followed blogs and random posts that WP sends your way. The version 3.0 update allows you to use the power of swiping when going through these posts, allowing you the freedom to either skip a post that doesn’t interest you or choose to read it and then go on to the next.
Sometimes, especially if you’re not an intuitive tech person, handling a blog can be pretty overwhelming and you just need someone to guide you through a rough patch every once in a while. The WP app now has a customer service support where you can chat with a rep within the app. Other new features in the update include improved geotagging for your posts, opting in and out in settings for your analytics, and of course the usual bug fixes.
If you’re thinking of getting into the blogging game or if you haven’t yet tried the Android app, you can get WordPress for free through the Google Play Store. It won’t cost you a thing, and it is a painless, minimalist and easy-to-use app for your blogging needs.
