WordPress today launched a pretty major update for WordPress.org. Alongside the latest release of WordPress.org, WordPress also introduced its new app for Windows. The company released a Classic Windows App (aka Win32) instead of a Universal Windows Platform app, which is pretty weird. Unfortunately, the app doesn’t have a lot to offer — it’s just a web wrapper. Yep, it’s just a web wrapper for the WordPress.com web app, which includes a few features:
- The My Sites dashboard for managing multiple sites, whether WordPress.com or self-hosted WordPress with Jetpack.
- The new WordPress.com Editor, with in-app previewing and draft auto-saving.
- The Reader, which lets you follow and read any of your favorite sites, and the all-new Discover, which recommends outstanding content from across all of WordPress.
- Insights and Stats, which show you exactly how your site and posts are performing.
- In-app notifications, so you can see comments, likes, and new follows all in one place.
With this little app, you can manage your WordPress.com and also manage your WordPress.org if it’s connected via Jetpack. Nonetheless, if you are interested in giving it a try, you can find it here.
