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.


Windows 8 App for Channel 9

April 2, 2013

I saw a tweet the other day for an awesome resource, a Windows 8 app for all Channel 9 content.


We have MMS 2013 around the corner in April, Microsoft TechEd North America & Europe and also the Build conference during the summer in June. To have the content from all those conferences easy accessible via the start screen is really great.

On the Channel 9 web site there is an article describing the app and it’s features: http://channel9.msdn.com/Blogs/C9Team/Windows-8-App-for-Channel-9-now-available

In the article there is a link to the first version of the app in the Windows store

Since i live in Sweden the app doesn’t appear to me and it seems from the comments that quite a few countries outside US are experiencing issues with getting access to the app.

There’s an easy and quick solution to that issue. Just change location to the US, download the app and change location back again.

If you don’t know how to change location for the Windows store here is a quick how to:

  1. Type region in the Start Screen
  2. Choose Region
  3. This displays the Region settings
  4. Choose the second tab, Location
  5. Change the Home location to the Country you would like the Windows Store to display
  6. Open the windows store and install the app.

I had issues finding the app so I installed it via the link provided in the Channel 9 article.

Don’t forget to change the Home location to the original setting.
