I’m sure WordPress users rocking the latest Windows Phone 7 devices would be happy with this news. The WordPress team has released the WordPress for Windows Phone 7 app and is now available via the Windows Market Place. The WordPress for Windows Phone 7 app is the latest addition to WordPress line of mobile apps and was made possible with the help of the folks from Microsoft and iSoftStone.
Announcement from the official WordPress for Windows Phone 7 blog:
Ever since Windows Phone 7 was announced we’ve been very much looking forward to creating a new WordPress app specifically for the platform. Today the first version of that app went live on the Windows Market Place! It’s a partnership between iSoftStone, Microsoft and us that’s made this possible, however we hope to get the help of the Open Source community to help the app get even better in the future!
The app itself follows the Windows Phone 7 guidelines in many ways, it uses a Panorama view to let you easily manage your blog/website, but also has an Actions dashboard that quickly lets you get to what you need to do. It’s all about keeping it simple and functional. There’s something magical about the stylish typography combined with simple and easy-to-understand icons. All accompanied by well known WordPress colors and styles.
