Powerful functionality, simple interface, modern design
Custom skins might be nice, lags a bit
WordPress for Android adds all the functionality and customization options of the website onto your Android device. Update posts, change themes, browse blogs; this does everything the desktop version can with the advantage of being mobile.
WordPress is probably the most used blog site on the planet; perhaps rivaled only by Blogger. I have used the WordPress desktop site and found this app offered all the same functionality, sacrificing nothing. In fact, I think I may like working with the app better. It just seemed more streamlined and it just feels right to have blogs in your hand, so to speak, as opposed to on a desktop.
The interface is excellent. I was able to browse themes, change setting and access all the account features as normal. I also love the ability to browse blogs that interest you and discover new ones. The category selection and customization is very good. You can create lists of favorite blogs and categories for easy retrieval. Create an account right from the app or add an existing one.
*Tip* if you're going to type long posts on a tablet, be sure to get the Type Machine app. It keeps a record of everything you type, so if you ever lose a long post to a glitch or network hiccup, Type Machine will save your butt. A must have companion to WordPress IMO.
WordPress for Android appears to be completely free. This is a great way to keep blogging personal and intimate. I love the powerful functionality and the ability to take app the power of WordPress on the go. Nicely done.
