I tried the new service from Google, Buzz. That is very very similar with Twitter! You can follow other people and others people follow you. But it can get from other sites, such as Blogger,Picasa, Google Reader, even you can connect to Twitter, getting your tweets to Buzz!
Another great feature is Buzz completely integrated with Gmail. That such as another menu item under your Gmail menu.
Well, so far, I am using twitter and set my Buzz connected to Twitter. So, my Buzz is only a mirror of my twitter at this moment.
Finally, there is an offical Wordpress app for Android. But that is very similar with wpToGo,such as managing the comments and adding new posts. But it got a better interface and bit more features.
It got an tags interface,included Comments, Posts and Pages. That is much better than wpToGo. I remember it only can manage the comments and posts.
Those tabs are simple and clean. Moreover,long holding on the item will call its actions menu, such as approving the comments.
Also, same as wpToGo, you can add a new post.
Both of wpToGo and Wordpress App got a very similar interface in this section.
In conclusion, this app can allow the users to manage their wordpress blog in an Android phone and easy to use. I quite like their interface. But I am not sure whether that is my mobile network problem or the app can handle the xml files from the wordpress web services. The app is very slow. Maybe, it gets all comments and pages every updates(It should only get 5 or 10 latest items).
Wordpres for Android
After Google released their first Google Phone, their Android Team will go to a world tour. The team will stop at the cities Europe, North America, and Asia. But No Australia! Maybe, our market is too small. I have seen a lot of people using iPhone, few people using Window Mobile. But I have seen very few Andorid users on the street in Australia.
I remember around 10 years, I got so many problems on encoding when I read the chinese website. Whether it was simplified chinese(GB) or traditional chinese (BIG5). Sometimes, the website did not put the encoding setting in their HTML. So, a lot of times, I found the website was in non-readable. I needed to switch the encoding setting of my browser frequently.
For recently, most of webesites switched to Unicode, my problem is solved. According to Google, there are nearing 50% of website using Unicode now. That is good, I hope there will be 100% very soon. As a result, the encoding will be gone. Becuase Unicode is nearly including the characters from most of languages in the World.
