We just learned that Automattic has released a native WordPress client for Android. Like Android, the app is an open source project and anyone can add contributions. The app looks quite similar to the unofficial wpToGo and we think that dev was probably involved in this project. A full review will come later, but we wanted to let everyone know the app is now available in the Android Market. If you have a blog powered by WordPress, give it a go and let us know what you think.
Update: Dan Roundhill, the dev of wpToGo, is behind this project. His app wpToGo will be discontinued as all development efforts move forward with the Open Source WordPress for Android app.
WordPress is our preferred blogging platform and has powered this site for the last year. For a taste of what WordPress can do, check out our new mobile site.
