The last month my betatesters and me worked on the XML-RPC plugin to make it emit and handle WordPress functions. The idea for doing this: I want to be able to manage my blog mobile. But S9Y is not that wide supported as WordPress is. You can find a WordPress client on nearly any mobile platform, but you won't find mobile clients that easy supporting the XML-RPC interfaces, S9Y implements.
If the XML-RPC interface supports WP functions, you can use all the clients out there supporting a standalone WordPress blog.
We are in a state now, that all tested clients are working! My betatesters are giving green light!
- You can create, edit or delete articles and save them as local or remote drafts.
- Together with the GeoTag plugin you can add mobile calculated geocoords to your articles
- You will be notified about new comments on your mobile and are able to answer or moderate them. Together with the new Bayes version you can even learn them as SPAM (if the client supports that trigger)
- Together with the new oEmbed Plugin I released recently it becomes easy to embed remote content like YouTube videos or flickr images using a mobile client.
- Official WordPress Clients on Android Phone, Android Tab, iOS Phone and iPad.
- Blogsy on iPad.
- MarsEdit and ecto on OS X Lion.
- ScribeFire on Firefox.
I hope, we are ready to release the new version of the plugin today (Sunday) to Spartacus. So happy mobile blogging, friends!
