BlackBerry WordPress 1.1 App Trials

The following was posted yesterday at 1:04 p.m. from my BlackBerry Tour using the WordPress 1.1 app.:

In the midst of spending about 3 hours talking in the sun at Starbucks yesterday, we were treated to these deliciously lovely samples…

I wanted to post the above photos originally. The top one, I tried posting while sitting with Lisa, however, I felt bad multitasking for far too long while trying to listen to her pearls of wisdom she was so kind to share. I then gave up and retweeted both her tweets:

One of the challenges of using this app is the difficulty of uploading pictures. As you can see, there are no pictures in the original post.

The Hawaii Geek Meet Greeters post was the first time I tried the app. There is a photo there, but it took about an hour figuring out how to get it to post, then manually resize it. Oh, but before I could do that and get it to work, I had to delete the file, then manually size, then upload it.

The reason for these attempted efforts is that there were glitches with Twitpic at one point, and I thought it more prudent to send traffic to one of my sites than there.

I don’t prefer to use Posterous (sorry to Posterous lovers) for many reasons which I won’t go into at this time.

Let me know if you have any tips working with the WordPress BlackBerry app. (I realize it’s a BB, and a 1.1 version, I really do.)

Cheers!
