If you can't bear to not be blogging while you're away from your computer, then why not install Wordpress on your phone?

This official Android Wordpress client brings the power of the blogging platform to the palm of your hand (well, a little bit of that power, anyway). Essentially, it's a tool for quickly adding and editing posts, checking comments and creating pages.

The Wordpress user interface is pretty easy to get around, making use of tabs to section off comments, posts and pages. Instead of just tapping an item to view it, you need to hold your finger on it for a couple of seconds, before you're presented with a pop-up Actions menu.

Editing posts in this Wordpress client is pretty straightforward, although you are very limited in what you can do. There are few formatting shortcuts, no visual/HTML differentiation, and the category selection menu doesn't seem to work at all. There is a button to add pictures stored on your phone to your posts but, bizarrely, the alignment options are found in the main system settings rather than in the Post window.

You won't find any options for editing your Wordpress account settings. In fact, there are no advanced tools or options in the app at all.

Wordpress for Android makes it pretty easy to post if you're desperate to blog while you're out and about. However, at the moment it's severely lacking in features.
