Posterous Ponders Blackberry App
It looks like WordPress and Tumblr may “soon” face some mobile competition on the Blackberry front, respectively, as Posterous has just tweeted that they are seriously considering a Blackberry app.
@posterous is there a (free) app for blackberry users to use posterous? (via @HWY)
@hwy No, not yet. We are planning to add more apps soon, but for the next few months, you’ll have to email [email protected] from your BB (via @Posterous)
Even though Posterous has an iPhone app by the name of PicPosterous (that truth be told is rather lacking when compared against Tumblr for iPhone), their lack of mobile presence elsewhere is rather puzzling in the age of smartphones.
Although it’s assumed that the company will probably release an Android app, hopefully the Posterous team can focus on providing more features such as comment moderation, social sharing options (think Hellotxt) and the ability to upload multiple videos and photos in a single post.
Currently users can simply email virtually anything to their Posterous account (such as video, audio, excel files, etc.), although a decent smartphone app upon Blackberry, Android and iPhone could help propel Posterous ahead of its rivals (especially if users can upload anything to their blog from within the app).
