WordPress for PlayBook - showing the Dashboard - blackberry.wordpress.org

We’re happy to announce that WordPress for PlayBook is now available for download on the RIM AppWorld.

WordPress for PlayBook - Detail: Dashboard button

Access the Dashboard quickly from anywhere

The 7″ screen on the PlayBook makes an excellent home for the all-new Dashboard UI, giving you quick access to everything in your WordPress install. And it’s always just a tap away – access the Dashboard by tapping the button in the top right of the screen to view it.

Write posts and pages in either landscape or portrait orientation using the new and improved post editor. You’ll find everything there that you want in a WordPress app: Edit existing posts/pages, add media, view your stats, moderate comments, and get direct access to the full web-based WordPress Admin (i.e. /wp-admin).

If you have a WordPress.com blog you’ll be able to access the Read feature, which enables you to read up on your favorite blogs and follow new and interesting Topics. Of course, you can also browse Freshly Pressed, showcasing some of the best content on WordPress.com daily.

Getting WordPress for PlayBook

You will need to update the device OS with the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0. The new OS is packed with the support for Android applications and allows our app to run on the PlayBook tablet.

    hi, I love this app BUT when I went to upload a quick photo is shut down the PB camera and now I cannot use it! I have reinstalled the OS software twice and done all the updates again, but it has not switched my camera back on as the application is still using it! How do I fix this?

    Follow up – after doing a security wipe out and reinstalling all the software, doing all the downloads and restoring my back, the camera still would not turn on. Went back into the WordPress app and published the post with the pic – that switches the camera back on. Glad I got it sorted, even though it has taken two working days and lots of MB!

    I can only ask and hope for a native app as next on your road map for this OS.
    I will be joining wp development to see if I can help.

    This app is great; thank you so much for making it! I gave you a 4 out of 5,
    only because it is not a native Playbook app. I hope you can make a native one
    someday, and I would definitely boost it to a 5.
