Just a little test

I’m just trying out the WordPress app on Android. It seems very well featured and, assuming this post shows up, does what I need it to (write and publish blog posts).

Clearly it’s early days but so far so good.

Blogsy…. testing

I’ve just downloaded Blogsy after watching a couple of the tutorial videos. It seems like a great way to connect your various media streams to your blogs, making photo and image selection (and video) very easy when drafting a blog post. The drag and drop (from your Picasa, Flickr, YouTube accounts) feature works very well indeed. The image below was dragged from my Picasa albums in just a couple of tap

The interface seems fairly straightforward and the app runs very well on my (old!) iPad 1. I was concerned that performance might be lacking on the old iPad but it runs very well indeed.

Anyway, just an initial post to try it out. I shall post more thoughts on it later, when I’ve had chance to use it more.
So far, so good!

WordPress for iOS updated to v2.9

The already brilliant iOS WordPress app just got a whole lot better with the introduction of version 2.9, featuring much needed additions such as rich text editing, quick links and a lot more space to enter all of your words.

It’s so easy to make things bold for example, or to strike out text.

Links are much easier too with the quick link button…. as easy as this. I would like a few more options in the link dialogue box (for example to set the target etc) but it’s a great leap forward and makes the app much quicker to use.

These are great updates and make for a much more productive app.

Go download it! Seriously!

Time for a makeover

Just a short time into the new (not-so daily) daily blog, I figured it was time for a makeover.

As readers of this blog will know, I recently moved it over from Posterous to a second install of WordPress here on craigt.co.uk. I used a temporary theme while I spent time looking for something fresh, clean and simple and, thanks to the inLine theme by Thomas Griffin Media that’s exactly what I’ve got.

I really like this theme. It offers me the ability to tweak and play with layouts and content while making it really simple. It’s not a fully featured paid theme but for this blog that doesn’t bother me. It’s pretty much exactly what I was looking for. It’s simple to administer, looks great and cleans everything up beautifully.

So, the new look, like it or loath it?
