This post is coming to the site courtesy of an iPhone 3G ….
So, what do I think of the usability of posting via an iPhone? Overall the experience is fairly positive considering that typing on a small keyboard definitely slows things down. I won’t bore you with yet another review of an iPhone since there are already so many out there. What I will tell you is that I do recommend the WordPress application from the iTunes application library. It isn’t flashy, but it does do the job of letting you post your thoughts when you don’t have access via a larger device … Maybe while you are sitting in the airport or taking a long ride in the car (notice I said riding, not driving!)
My advice? Try the iPhone app, take it for a spin, but do you hard core blogging on something with a little more finger real estate.
I can’t resist saying at least one other thing about the iPhone… I do very much like the 3G, although we don’t actually get those speeds where I live. Everything has been great, except MS Exchange integration. One of the big reasons I waited to get the 3G was to be able to get mail pushed from our corporate servers, and so far no dice. I was able to connect to some other Exchange services outside of our company, but so far we have not been able to find the secret ingedient to getting our mail server to work.
That leads me to leave you with a final thought on the various “answers” that people have out there to try and make this work:
If you are guessing, just say you are guessing and don’t fake being an authority ok the subject …. And if you really don’t know, just stay silent. All the garbage out there that is clearly not right just makes it take that much longer to find the real answers.
