A WordPress iPhone App I would pay for

WordPress is awesome. iPhone is just as amazing. Let’s combine them, but not the way you think. I’m still using an iPhone, the first one is still dead, but I got a new one.

The phone

I’m using a lot of different apps, and there are 3 apps I use every single day. But there’s one missing.

I have tested blogging from my iPhone (using the wordpress app), but I’m not going to do that again. It’s just too hard to write a blog posts on a small device.

But, there’s a plugin that I would really appreciate.

… and I will pay for it.

The plugin

I’m talking about Editorial Calendar. What I’m looking for is to be able to save new blog posts, but I just want it to be easy to add the following:

That’s all.

Why I want Editorial Calendar for iPhone

It’s always in my pocket, no matter where I am (well almost).

I want to be able to add a new post and save it, so the next time I’m at my computer and logged in to wordpress, I can continue writing. I only want to be able to add the title, schedule it (add a draft to a specific time and date) and add a list of keywords (in order to remember what the post will be about).

What I’m looking for is a way to draft new blog posts, but only the most essential stuff. I want to be able to use it as a to-do list and an outline, and I want everything to be saved inside wordpress.

Learn from Evernote

Evernote is my favorite app, I use it to remember. Editorial Calendar for my phone should be just as easy to use as Evernote, and just as powerful. My christmas wish is that the people at Stresslimit will listen to me and create it.

  1. I found that having apps like this on my phone or iPad have me almost working 24hrs a day…so I take the opposite approach and make certain that I do not have any of these on my items 🙂

  2. Hi Ryan,

    I certainly understand your approach. I’m actually a lot like you when it comes to this. But I am only working at specific times, so I only use the apps when I get an idea when I’m out walking, or somewhere else other than in front of my computer. You could say that it’s work, and that it makes me work 24 hours a day, but it doesn’t feel like it. It’s just fun, and I’m not focusing on work, the ideas just appear and I want to remember them 🙂

    Thanks a lot for your comment.

  3. I’d love to have that plugin too given that I’m only now setting up an editorial calendar. I too have yet to really get on to Evernote yet I know everyone that uses it finds it super useful

    • Evernote is awesome, I use it every single day and that’s the same with the editorial calendar. It’s great to have the overview and being able to schedule blog posts with a view like a calendar.

    It sounds like a pretty good idea. I have been looking for ideas to develop some apps.This one sounds pretty good, like I said before. It requires some investment and time. I can’t do either as I’m involved in so many things at the moment. Maybe next year? who knows

    Yes, this is a multi-billion industry. Too bad I’m not part of it 🙂

    Thanks a lot for the feedback.
