WordPress blogging apps hit Kindle Fire, NOOK Tablet


Popular blogging platform WordPress has offered mobile apps for Android, iOS, and other mobile operating systems for a while. But up until recently there was no simple way to install the apps on some of the most popular Android tablets: The Amazon Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble NOOK Color and NOOK Tablet.

WordPress 2.0 for Android on NOOK Tablet, Kindle Fire

That’s because none of those devices comes with access to the Google Android Market. Instead they have their own app stores. Now the folks at WordPress have announced that you can download the official WordPress app from the Amazon Appstore and B&N Shop.

Both the NOOK and Kindle apps are available as free downloads, and both let you create new posts for your WordPress blog, upload photos, edit existing posts, manage comments, or view statistics.

Basically WordPress for the NOOK and Kindle is the same WordPress 2.0 app that’s already available for other Android devices… but now you can download it outside of the Android Market.

Or you can always root your NOOK Tablet or Kindle Fire and install the Market.
