Sometimes things just work out. When Microsoft announced Windows Phone 7, a complete remake of the Windows Phone platform, we all got very excited. The simplicity of the platform is unheard of, with the target being to “spend less time on your phone – and get to the things you want to do quicker”. A perfect platform for a WordPress app to enable blogging while on the move.
Today I’m very proud to introduce you to the latest addition in the WordPress app family, WordPress for Windows Phone 7:
In this, the first version of WordPress for Windows Phone 7, you will find most of what you’ve come to expect from WordPress apps. It’s easy to write and edit posts and pages on the move, you can upload photos, as well as check stats and moderate comments. It’s all easily accessible from an Actions dashboard. In future versions of the app we’re also hoping to implement video uploading – let us know what else you’d like to see!
To navigate through the app a Panorama view is used, something unique to the Windows Phone 7 platform that works really well for managing a blog or a website. You can get an idea of what it’s like using the app by clicking through the slideshow on the brand new WordPress for Windows Phone 7 website.
We couldn’t be more excited about this, and we’re hoping to take the app even further in the coming months. It’s a partnership between iSoftStone, Microsoft and us that’s made this possible, thank you for all your help and support!
WordPress for Windows Phone 7 is an Open Source app. To learn more and get involved, visit windowsphone.wordpress.org/development.

Really pleased to see this made available. Thank you.
It seems good to use WordPress with Windows Phone 7, but I use Samsung i5700, it is Android.
The ability to upload videos would be great… But in the meantime, this app sounds pretty perfect. Can’t wait to watch the slideshow. Thanks!
Well, it might be a good decision to blog with WordPress ;)
Thanks for always coming up with cool features!
Nice. iPhone, Android, then WP7.
So I guess WP thinks Palm Pre’s aren’t worth the trouble? :-(
Thnak you, WordPress!
Terrific! Simply genius. Another job well done WordPress.
I love the Windows Phone 7 interface so much, now I just need to get a WP for Christmas!! (fingers crossed lol)
Sounds great, but unfortunately the iPhone app is still buggy as heck :(
PC is the best :D
When do want to make a WordPress for Java?? :mrgreen:
Good thing that Windows may finally be actually trying to succeed, again.
True? That’s great news! A good Chritsmas present. Thanks. Still to try it though.
Great app guys, thanks.
I wish you’d fix the buggy iOS wordpress app.
Sounds like a must for bloggers.
If only it wasn’t Windows. ;-)
I’m still waiting for the addition of statistics on the iPhone version … On Android and Windows Phone 7 is avaiable.
I hope to update soon the iPhone version, because it is rather low compared with the completeness of the other two versions.
LİNUX LİNUX LİNUX LİNUX Now Pls :)
WordPress For All Linux Phone System Integrations Now Pls :)
windows 7 has not impressed me as much as I though it would, however the subsequent versions must improve a lot, given its user base
Great work. Thanks
Yes must try this out. I have a Windows Phone-Samsung.
I’ve tried it, This is excellent.
The link at the end of the post directs us to zune.net, what is that? no introduction to the application for Windows Phone 7?…
Very nice! Thanks
Awesomeeeee! Im going on a trip tomorrow and this app comes just in time! :D
Awesome, thanks very much guys, this is going to make blogging on the go that much easier!
I would LOVE to be able to save a draft instead if immediately publish. But I am definitely happy to have this application on my new phone. Thanks!
Just churning out the goodness! Well done and happy holidays.
I love how everyone is using the Panarama control in their applications. I have been waiting for this app… I dont blog on my phone too much… but there is always that one time that i need to :)
Is it working for windows 6.5?
cool! nice app. Happy holidays
He he he, one month ago, I bought this device =)
Works great – thanks for the effort. One suggestion: add a visual indicator that the phone is doing something when you tap an item.
Straight away I went to download it, is it Zune software?
I like the info of Windows Phone 7. It’s cool :)

I Love Windows Phone 7!
