WordPress App for Windows Phone

August 4, 2014

I saw a tweet from my good friend and TechEd Roundtable member Dieter Rauscher about a good app for Windows Phone.

I gave a quick search and found that the app I had in mind wasn’t there to be found. Anyway here is a link to the App so you can install it on your phone.Splash

Once installed you have options to start a new blog at WordPress.com, add your blog hosted on WordPress.com or add your self-hosted wordpress blog.


I have blogged about creating a Azure hosted WordPress blog in 7 clicks if you would like to try that out.


When you have created your blog or added your existing one you get to the Actions page, from there you are given options to:

  • Add a post
  • View Stats
  • Add a page
  • Blog Settings
  • View Admin
  • View Site

Swiping to the sides takes you to Comments, Posts and Pages.

To add a new blog post tap the tile and start blogging from Windows Phone to your WordPress Blogg.
