Did you know that WordPress for Android runs on both phones and tablets? Sometimes a little extra screen space can help you draft that longer blog post. If you have a Samsung Galaxy Tab, Motorola Xoom, or another Android tablet you’ll find the WordPress app in the Android Market.
“Now for the Nook Color/Tablet and Kindle Fire, too!”
We’re happy to announce that WordPress for Android is now available for the Nook Color/Tablet and Kindle Fire. The 7? screen on these tablets make an excellent home for the all-new Dashboard UI that we added inWordPress for Android 2.0.
We paid special attention to the post editor on theses devices, enhancing the layout to make it super simple to edit your post content in either landscape or portrait orientation. You’ll find everything there that you’d want in a WordPress app, including support for editing post content, adding media, viewing your stats, comment notifications, and more.
WordPress has updated its native Android application for smartphones and tablets, delivering features from its version 2.0 update and making them available for owners of Amazon’s Kindle Fire and B&N’s Nook Color/Tablet.
WordPress’ for Android v2.0.5 sees the blogging app gain post editor and geotagging improvements but understandably, the focus is on its new support for owners of both 7-inch tablets from two of the US’ biggest booksellers.
Despite having a smaller screen than most Android devices and Apple’s iPad, the WordPress team has ensured that its new Dashboard UI renders perfectly on the Nook and Kindle Fire displays. The app has been enhanced to make it easy to post new updates in either landscape or portrait orientation.
Popular blogging platform WordPress has offered mobile apps for Android, iOS, and other mobile operating systems for a while. But up until recently there was no simple way to install the apps on some of the most popular Android tablets: The Amazon Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble NOOK Color and NOOK Tablet.
That’s because none of those devices comes with access to the Google Android Market. Instead they have their own app stores. Now the folks at WordPress have announced that you can download the official WordPress app from the Amazon Appstore and B&N Shop.
Both the NOOK and Kindle apps are available as free downloads, and both let you create new posts for your WordPress blog, upload photos, edit existing posts, manage comments, or view statistics.
Basically WordPress for the NOOK and Kindle is the same WordPress 2.0 app that’s already available for other Android devices… but now you can download it outside of the Android Market.
