WordPress blogging app coming to the iPhone

June 10, 2008 | 1 Comment

In the wee hours of the morning the newest version of the Apple iPhone was announced. It’s coming to the Philippines in September, but there’s something else I’m going to point out: there’s going to be a native blogging application for WordPress on the iPhone.

The blogging app for TypePad was demo-ed during the Apple WWWDC 2008 Keynote, and corresponding ones for WordPress and Blogger are coming in the next few weeks.

Will this put a whole new spin on the concept of mobile blogging, considering how well-made iPhone apps are? Let’s wait and find out!

WordPress Plugins: TypePad AntiSpam for WordPress and WordPress.com Stats for Movable Type

June 4, 2008 | 1 Comment

WordPress and WordPress.com are Automattic products, while Movable Type and TypePad are SixApart products. These two companies are fierce competitors for the blogging platform crown, but here’s a surprise: you can actually use two of their plugins for the “opposing camp”.

TypePad AntiSpam

TypePad AntiSpam is SixApart’s answer to Automattic’s Akismet. It’s completely compatible with the latter, and like it you’ll need to register for an API key, also for free. Get started here.

WordPress.com Stats

WordPress.com Stats is an analytics program for self-hosted WordPress and WordPress.com users alike. Movable Type users can run this plugin as well, but they’ll also need a corresponding API key. Complete details found here.

It’s clear that these two companies are looking to expand their userbase not just with their blog software but with other projects in tow.
