For those of you who belong to the WordPress faith, you may be surprised to hear that there is a second iPhone App on Apple’s favorite phone.
MoFuse, the service that makes your site mobile friendly, announced an interesting array of news via e-mail today:
- Improved recommendation engine
- WordPress comments integration
- YouTube video transcoded to mobile-friendly format
The first one on the list isn’t something I personally care about, MoFuse got this recommended reading links at the end of mobile pages, if you enable it, so that readers will find more content in the mobile web. However, the integration of WordPress comments, and automatic transcoding of embedded YouTube videos are interesting news.
Check out MoFuse if you want to have a mobile version of your site.
It does not matter whether you are a BlogSpot hippie, a TypePad junkie or you belong to the cult of WordPress (both of them).
It does not matter whether your phone was made by Nokia, LG, Blackberry or chisled out by Steve Jobs himself.
Regardless of the blog platform and phone you choose, CellSpin is attempting to make mobile blogging easier for the masses with an array of free media tools that made this blogger do “the happy dance.” [Read more…]
While users do have a way of posting images and text to their BlogSpot blogs (via mail-to-blogger), blogger users are demanding more, leaving the “iPhone-to-blogger field” wide open.
Hate! Loathe! Whine! Spit!
That’s the first impression I received after browsing through the reviews of Six Apart’s iPhone App on iTunes.
While many were upset that a TypePad account would cost them 495 pennies a month, others seemed upset that this app would not work on Movable Type (or even Vox) despite the obvious indication that this is a TypePad only app. [Read more…]
Whether you are a “Movable Type maniac” or a BlogSpot fan (note: this author is), you have to admit that WordPress has done an impressive job in building, maintaining, and supporting both WordPress.com and WordPress.org.
For those (un)fortunate enough to part a few hundred “big ones” to own an iPhone, you are probably busy testing out dozens (out of the hundreds) of iPhone apps Apple has released on their iTunes store.
While there are many apps dedicated towards entertaining you via music, gaming or enhancing your life (productivity wise), there seem to be less than a dozen apps dedicated towards blogging–with about half of them being somewhat useful. [Read more…]
CellSpin has announced that its software will now support Apple’s iPhone, allowing users to capture audio, photos, and text, and publish to blogs on a number of popular platforms including Blogger, Live Journal, Live Spaces, and TypePad, as well as other popular sites such as MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Pownce, Picasa, Flickr, and eBay.
Various types of media are supported, including voice blogging, photo blogging, and standard text blogging.
A more dubious use, according to the press release, is the ability to “record candid audio conversations and embarrass friends” (they will kill you when they find out), as well as — more seriously — being able to securely send media to eBay auctions, set up podcasts, send voice meeting minutes to a blog, and take part in CellSpin’s community blogs (“clogs”).
CellSpin CEO and co-founder Bobby Gurvinder Singh said, “The iPhone is the mobile platform CellSpin was created for. This perfect blend of our elegant application and Apple’s sophisticated hardware produces a combination that is intuitive to the user, yet also a tour de force of technical capabilities. CellSpin is the coolest app for the hottest handset in the market today.”
CellSpin is already available for a variety of other mobile phone operating systems, including Symbian, Windows Mobile 5.0 and 6.0, Palm OS and BlackBerry.
Blogging relies on technology which is sure to change at a rapid pace. A recent development is “microblogging.”
