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!

WordPress now has 1 Million mobile users - Thank you for all your support so far!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:

WordPress for Nokia Logo

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…

…or go to the WordPress for Nokia site where you’ll find all the details on the new app.

If you’re a developer, you can help out and improve the app to make it even better! All of WordPress’s apps are Open Source. If you’d like get involved, be sure to let us know. Read more on WordPress for Nokia Development.

So, how do you like the new app?

    Well done guys – and keep it coming. I really enjoy being able to write posts, moderate comments, reply to comments etc while on the go.

    (Speaking of which – can we now have the iPhone app fixed? – it has been broken for ages – and yes, this has been reported through the correct channels).

    Why not just make a WAP compliant version to support all browsers? Would that be too easy? I for one am waiting for a way to use WP in all kinds of … nonmodern browsers. Dillo (I use some boxen which are too slow for FF), elinks (because sometimes I cba to start X11 on these systems), the IE of Windows CE 5.0 (Allfine Netbook, don’t ask)…

    Same for the N97 – needs to be N97 Mini despite what stated on nokia.wordpress.org… Not sure if this is WordPress or Nokia, but less than impressive launch of the WordPress for Nokia application. I have the E63, so I guess I’ll continue using the blog via email feature… :(

      You are right, the app doesn’t seem to be available for the N97 currently. This is a mistake on our part, as it is indeed compatible with the device. We’ll work on making it available as soon as possible.

Maybe you’d want to edit the ‘N97′ off the list above of suitable phone. Hoping it will be offered for my device though, but then that between us N97 users and Nokia. ^_^

    that also desperately need this application, maybe if this application
    could be used in other mobile, WordPress will be more successful in
    developing it’s network in this virtual world. Develop your work that

    That is a really good app with a good interface and I love the slide-y menus. and I did find a few issues which I think can be worked on. If that’s done, it will be the best app ever on my phone.

    1. Startup time: It’s very slow that made me think it hung.
    2. The download from ovi installs the rest of the app in the Phone Memory which can slow down the phone by a lot. (Atleast 6 Mb is downloaded.)
    3. It would be awesome if you added another tab that would give a mobile preview of the blog.
    4. A few of the gravatars did not load even after over 10 mins. (I used a WiFi.)

    P.S. I own a 5530 XM. Good app, anyways.
