Understanding WordPress for Android – Part 0Posted: June 7, 2011
One of the apps which I never expected to see in the Android marketplace was the WordPress app.
Seriously, was it possible to bring in the power of blogging into one’s Android mobile? Microblogging was easy. There are thousands of Twitter apps for Android to do that. But how could a mobile be sufficient to blog on WordPress??
Trust me, it is really an awesome app!
It was the time when organizations where applying for Google Summer of Code. Within a few weeks, I got to know that the Android app had been selected as a project as well! I was so eager to work on it to realize it’s full potential myself. I also wanted to work on a GSoC project. I applied and worked hard to get it, and finally I did.
You can find more details about the app here: http://android.wordpress.org/
If you also wanna be a developer, this is the place to be: irc://freenode/wordpress-mobile
I have been working on changing the UI of the app for a few weeks now. I just realized that the best way to progress quickly would be to be blog about this blogging app. So here I am.
I will be initially giving a brief introduction to the app and then moving on to the explain the code later.
