This is just a test post using BlogDesk-button

This is a free Windows based RPC tool for WordPress and other blogs. So far it looks like a really useful and fast way of posting including uploading images complete with alt tags and links etc

Using WordPress with an iPod Touch (or iPhone)

WordPress App
The plugins and apps for using WordPress with the iPod Touch (and iPhone) seem really great. The first thing I tried was the free WordPress app which seems to work really well including the option to include and upload photos.

The screenshot below shows the write screen.
There are limited options but anything more complicated would probably be best done on a larger screen device.:

WordPress Theme
Having installed the WP iPod Touch plugin I have to say it seems to work brilliantly. The 1st screenshot below shows the standard blog postings with links to search and also a link to the menu.

This is the menu view showing the icons I chose in the plugin configuration. There’s also a link in the footer to switch to view the site via the normal theme and back again. Although my normal theme seems ok on the Touch this optimised theme does work much better. Thumbs up to the developers for a great job!

Taking screenshots on iPhone and iPod Touch

September 25, 2008 at 9:18 am

I was looking for a way to capture screenshots on my iPod touch and started searching online for a solution. I was assuming that I needed to download an application of some sort but then I found a video tutorial on technorati showing how easy it is using the latest iPod Touch software. Basically it’s get to the screen you want to capture, hold in the menu button then quickly press the on/off button and that’s it! The screen goes white momentarily and the image gets stored in a saved images directory in the main images directory. The clips below shows this in action.

There’s some example screen shots in my posting about the iPod Touch WP theme and App.

Lake Louise Canada

Lake Louise Canada

so this is just a test post, a test of the categories I’ve just added and a test of uploading an image via my iPod Touch.

The image was a quick pic I took a couple of years ago of Lake Louise on a tour of the Canadia Rockies.
