I talk about constraints tonight, you will notice show is 1:23:00 I have realized I have been feeling constrained and rushed with the 1:10:00 limit I imposed on myself. Unless I get a barrage of email begging me to go back the show is going back to a semi un-constrained time limit.

WebOS is the most underrated mobile operating system on the market. It has everything but a large user-base. So, it seems a bit strange that WordPress has chosen it to be the first recipient of their new visual editor app. Android, with the largest market share, would have been a no-brainer, iOS would have seemed logical, and Windows Phone would not have been a major surprise (Microsoft has been know to throw some money the way of developers for things like this), but it landed on WebOS.
WordPress already has rudimentary apps available for Android and iOS, but they lack the power and functionality of the WebOS release.
The WebOS WordPress app uses sliding panes to navigate between various sections and editors. You can easily edit text, add media, and get a preview of what your post will look like before publishing it to a website. You can not only moderate comments on your posts, but also get notifications when new comments arrive through the WebOS’s native notification system.
The app supports both WordPress.com hosted sites and self-hosted sites also. WordPress for webOS is a free app and is available for the HP TouchPad through HP’s App Catalog. You can watch a walk-through video below.
WordPress has been around a long time and is quite a powerful web publishing platform available to virtually everyone at no cost.
I finally got around to installing the official WordPress app onto my iPod Touch and I have to say I’m impressed with the app. It quickly accepted the credentials to my own WordPress blog, and I found I could update my site directly from my iPod. More impressive to me was when I discovered the ease with which I was able to take photos (or videos) with the iPod’s camera and instantly embed them into blog posts.
Nothing is more powerful than to be able to quickly update one’s own site with not only words but images as well. The official WordPress for iOS is a free download on the iPod/iPad/iPhone/iOS App Store. If you have a WordPress blog and an iOS device, this free app is worth installing.
If you use WordPress to run your website or blog then you are probably always on the lookout for a new theme. If you are serious about your site then you are willing to pay for a good theme. The biggest problem isn’t the lack of WP themes out there, it’s how to find and compare them. There’s a new resource online that is attempting to solve this issue. It’s called ThemeSorter.
Although it just recently launched it already has an impressive catalog of themes (500+ as of this writing). The layout is basic, making it easy to browse available themes in any of several different category types – formats, niches, colors, and styles to name a few.
If you look carefully you will even find an occasional freebie thrown in. You can also find discount deals on a lot of the themes being offered. It’s a great one-stop-shop for anyone looking to launch a new site or upgrade a growing one.
My team at RawVoice this morning released version 2.0 of the PowerPress Podcast plugin for WordPress. The work committed to this update was well over 1 month of coding. I have been running the beta here at Geek News Central for several weeks, and many of you have already commented on the new video player experience as being superior to what you have seen on other podcasters websites. Now that the update has been made available to the 80,000 podcaster worldwide we are excited to watch the implementation across the web.
Folks making video will want to check out the new HTML5 video player, WebM support and Embeds feature! PowerPress 2.0 provides an optimized viewing experience for the widest spectrum of hardware/software including web browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari), mobile devices (e.g. iPhone, iPad, Android), and TV’s (e.g. Google TV, Roku, Boxee).
Some of the new features and enhancements include:
- HTML5 video player
- HTML5 audio player
- Embeds your audience can take with them just like YouTube.
- WebM video support
- Ogg audio/video support improvements
- MP4+WebM (for mp4/m4v video, a new alternative WebM URL field is available. This is ideal for supporting all browser based HTML5 video players)
- Flow Player Classic can now play m4a audio and mp4/m4v video
- New Video Player settings page added
- Settings pages enhanced with new options such as location, frequency and T.V. options
- Episode Entry box enhanced with new ‘isHD’ option when video entered into Media URL box
- Episode Entry box now includes option to configure video player width/height on a per-episode basis
- Upload image option added to supplement the video poster image field. Images are uploaded to the built-in image gallery in WordPress.
- Plus a number of improvements
I have created a short video on some of the coolest features and hope you will take a few minutes to overview the update. Please note that the video embed below is from the actual posting on our official PowerPress site. No longer do we need Blip or YouTube we can share our content from our sites with the embed feature.
Make sure you Upgrade today!
