Celebrating 1 Million mobile users: WordPress for Nokia!
It’s been a crazy few years for WordPress’s mobile projects. In 2008 we launched the first version of the WordPress app so you could blog on the go with your shiny first-generation iPhone. Since then, we’ve added other platforms as well, including BlackBerry and Android. Today we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve expanded our mobile services to Nokia smart phones, too!
And this news couldn’t come at a more exciting time for us: We just passed 1 million mobile users across all platforms, which is not only a huge landmark for us, but for mobile blogging altogether. Cell phones are becoming our new personal computers, always with us and always ready when something needs blogging about. Each day thousands of posts are written and posted using nothing but a wee phone keyboard and a built-in camera. It’s truly about capturing the moment, and as smart phones are becoming more popular we’re trying to stay with you with your platform of choice. As of right now we have two exciting platforms in our scope, and today we’re launching the first one. I give you WordPress for Nokia:
We’ve made sure the Nokia app has everything you love about WordPress on any other mobile device – and you will find a lot of old and beloved friends among the features: You can, of course, write and edit posts and pages, manage your comments queue and keep an eye on your blog’s statistics while on the move. If a seagull just snatched your hot dog and is making a run for it, you can snap a picture of the commotion or even record a video describing how it felt and how much you’re suing for. All from within the app.
You can download the app directly from the Nokia Ovi Store…
