WordPress for BlackBerry

I’ve wondered for some time when today would come! Yes, sure, it’s been possible to post blog entries via email for quite some time, but as of today, there is an official BlackBerry WordPress client that works over BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS)!

So, what’s so great? Check out this video demonstration for a quick overview!

Yes, this app has been around for a couple months, but the BIS support they added in todays release really makes it usable for the general public on the go (prior versions only supported BES – BlackBerry Enterprise Server, a corporate setup).

So if you have a BlackBerry, check it out by pointing your browser at http://blackberry.wordpress.org/install to give it a try. You will need to have XMLRPC installed and working properly for this app to work, but the latest versions of WordPress have this working out of the box (unless your theme doesn’t support it).

It works great for me, so let me know how it’s working (or not working) for you. And yes, this whole post was written on my BlackBerry Bold!
