WordPress App For Desktop

I decided to download the WordPress app for Mac. I am typing this on the app. I am not sure I see the advantage of using it because I am going to go to the website to see that everything looks OK – so I could just as easily type there.

Maybe if I use it more I would gain trust and just believe that it looks OK on the site.

Here’s a screenshot of what the app looks like. One thing, when I was adding the image, I couldn’t see any way to choose how the image would be inserted. How can I choose to display it in the centre and full size? What if I wanted it to display left and smaller size, or right?

I have the answer. When I click on the image once it is inserted on the page, little handlebars appear and I can drag the size of the image dynamically. And there is a little menu bar with options to click left, right, etc. That is how images behave with Gutenberg in the self-hosted version of WordPress.

This app will also let you post to any self-hosted sites you have that have Jetpack installed, so the app can be a ‘control centre’ from which you can post to several sites.
