Wordpress app

asked 2018-04-24 22:48:10 +0300

Hello Jolla Together, it would be nice to be able to use the Wordpress app, I mean the android version. I've tried, but while installing on Jolla 1, it requires Google Play Services to work. Even trying to install it from the Store, the app keeps me showing the need for google play services ...

Are there correct versions or not?

There will be a native app in development?

Clearly the application will not be installed without the aid of Google Play Services.

"Will there be a native app in development?" ~ my guess; a resounding no

I just installed it on my J1from Aptoide - and yes it complains about me not having the GS installed on the first run. But it seems to work with no problem anyway.

Will try soon a reinstall/install of app. I get the error message on log-in, and then the app quit.

I just reinstalled the latest version in Store (aptoide from Jolla) and now it log-in to my wordpress.com account. The app fails to publish because of a 403 http error, but I feel it is a fine tuning to do with my host.

Hm, I have no problems with the WordPress (Android) App. Using it on my Jolla C, installed it via Yalp Store as far as I remember. It's also available at Amazon App Store and should work as well (but maybe not the newest version).

The problem would be i think the app need a newer Android version to run on it.

I installed it long time ago, on Jolla 1 device, and as I can see now the Wordpress app version i have is 5.7-rc-1 . I use it to manage content on a site that I host myself, not on wordpress.com . I think on aptoide you can find some older versions of apps too.
