Nokia fans who bought themselves a Lumia smartphone or a MeeGo-based N9 are probably a bit disappointed by the low numbers of third-party apps available to them via official channels.
Although Windows Phone Marketplace has just hit the 60,000 submitted apps milestone, Microsoft’s app store is still far behind Google’s Android Market and Apple’s App Store.
All in all, there are some critical apps that a Nokia user may need in various scenarios. This is why Nokia came forward with some recommendations for those who like to manage their websites while on the go.
In case you didn’t know, WordPress has already released a Windows Phone version of its popular content management for websites application. This means that Nokia Lumia owners can definitely use this application on their devices.
If you are one of those who want to edit their blog using WordPress, directly from a Nokia Lumia smartphone, then you should know that the Windows Phone app offers a user friendly interface combined with a wide range of customization options.
However, it is recommended to use WordPress for Windows Phone mostly for short posts, corrections and moderations, and let the more complex stuff be managed from a computer.
The application provides rather basic editing options, as posts appear in HTML not in WYSIWYG format. In addition, users will need to remember the code for more advanced features, other than inserting a picture or basic format.
WordPress for Windows Phone is now available as a free download in the Windows Phone Marketplace.
As for the Nokia N9, the Finnish handset maker recommends users who like mobile blogging to download and install Cutepress. Developed by ShowStopper, the application allows users to add passwords to posts or edit the time stamp, as well as insert a video from the N9 smartphone.
Just like the Windows Phone application, Cutepress is available as a free download, but Nokia N9 users will find this one in the Nokia Store. For more details on both apps head over to Nokia’s blog site.
