I’ll be leaving for school for the military next weekend and the only thing I could think about was how I won’t be able to write blog posts for the following two weeks that I’d be gone. I was even asking for guest posters, but after no one seemed interested in guest posting, I started trying to find another way.
I guess I could always write 2 weeks worth of articles and schedule them, but I’d rather spend the time with my family before I leave.
Then I found it… a way to keep my blog updated while I’m gone, using my cell phone.
About WordPress Blackberry App
Here’s a little video that shows some information about the application:
This application is still in beta phase, but I’ve already downloaded it and have found no problems at all. The best part about it is that it’s very quick even without a 3g connection speed.
And here’s what you need to know if you want to take the app for a spin:
- The app is for WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress version 2.5.1 or newer
- This app should work with any of the new BlackBerry devices such as the 8700, Pearl, Curve, Bold, and Storm
- BlackBerry OS requirements are OS 4.2.1 or newer
- For self-hosted WordPress sites, please make sure you have XML-RPC enabled. To confirm, it’s a simple check box in your dashboard under Settings -> Writing
You can download a copy of the WordPress for Blackberry application by visiting the following url on your blackberry device:
