Not too long ago I downloaded a copy of WordPress for Android app. I’ve been wanting to do this now that I’m getting back into blogging. The latest release of the app on January 30, 2014 made me curious about the history of the app. So I did a bit of digging.
In July of 2008, WordPress released its first ever WordPress for iOS app followed by the Android version in 2010. The apps made managing your WordPress site from your smartphone easy – a gift for bloggers on the go. WordPress demonstrated an almost Apple like sense of user awareness and attempted to make their apps user friendly. The mobile devices of the time were less powerful but the WordPress apps were relatively user and mobile device friendly. See the promo video below.
