I have a rooted Motorola Droid 2 phone that has been serving me very well (although it is not outdated). It automatically reboots everyday before I wakeup, giving a fresh hot phone every morning. On such phones that are becoming a part of us everyday, having mobile apps to control, monitory, and administer your website would be a great convenience. At least, for me it has worked out great. I thought it would be a good idea to share with you the three free android apps that have come in handy for me to accomplish this.
WordPress – Automattic, Inc.
WordPress for Android is an Open Source app that empowers you to write new posts, edit content, view stats, and manage comments with built-in notifications.
