With most of the heavy lifting behind me in my migration to WordPress, I’ve started looking at some more subtle features. I’ll cover plugins later, but I want to try WordPress for iPhone 2.
I can already tell it tries to overcome the aggravating inelegant linking issue that plagues every iPhone app to one extent or the other. It’s easy to create a post, and, once you figure out how to do it (via the Status screen), easy to publish posts.
We are at Tokyohana with our good friends the Brooks, who are visiting from Atlanta.
I took a (blurry iPhone special) picture to add to this post. Wonder if and where it will appear?
Update: Pictures appear at the end of the post, which would be fine except they are huge (I resized it from my desktop). If this is how it works, the photo addition feature is useless.
The company is great, the food is excellent, and the app is very good. It does about as much as can be done to make it less than torture to create a link.
I bet this will rock on an iPad!
Now back to friends and food.
Update 2: I was unable to post over 3G, but it seemed to work via wifi. I hope that’s a network glitch and not an app limitation.

Kent, maybe try publishing photos using flickrs email->blog feature. Works great.Alternatively Posterous as a email->blog/everywhere posting platform.Then there's always EverPress plugin – Evernote to WP [see my blog post http://dnwallace.com/blog/2010/01/11/everpress-…. The only downside with EverPress is it's not immediate. But it does a fair job of image formatting.Cheers mate.
Thanks, I'll look into those options. I really think the WP iPhone app is onto something, if they'd just tweak a few things- like the ability to set photo sizes, etc.
