Web 2.0 Patterns: Software Above the Level of a Single Device – WordPress for IOS
These days, smartphones such as iPhone are being used massively among us, which lead the consumers wanting to access or use these mobile devices for almost everything that they can use in normal PC. Such services can be provided to users via “Software above the level of a single device”, which a web 2.0 pattern. Tim O’reilly defines this pattern as ” every web application is software above the level of a single device.”
For today’s topic, I will use WordPress App for IOS as an example. WordPress for IOS allows the users to do almost everything to their blogs in the move and the app supports the following features:
Moderate, edit, or reply to comments — This feature makes it easier to stay in touch with your readers. For popular posts, you can quickly bulk moderate comments through the intuitive interface. When using this feature wish is provided in this App, the user will have the same experience as using a normal PC or laptop to do the commenting activities including editing, replying and approving comments.
Creating and editing posts is at the heart of the WordPress experience. Write, add photos, check your spelling, and even create links without having to write a single line of code or HTML. When you’re writing and you’d like a bit more room, just rotate the screen. WordPress will automatically adjust to a more comfortable widescreen layout.
Add as many photos as you like — WordPress will automatically insert them into your post. Both high resolution and web optimised photos look and work great. This feature uses ” Rich User Experience patterns” as it provides a platform as the users can upload as many photo as they want into their blog. In other words, this feature provides the same experience as if the users are using a PC or laptop.
On the iPhone, sharing your location when you post to your WordPress blog is a cinch. Just tap the Geotag icon on the Write screen, and watch as WordPress locates you on the map. It’s a great way to share where you were when you posted to your blog. This feature uses “Harnessing Collective Intelligence” as it uses the data of location of the users.
In this App the user can do more than approving or posting a new topic, the users can even view the stat of their blog to check how many visits they have. It just amazing how web 2.0 technologies allow us to do many things such as commenting on post as we in the move and providing the same experience as using our laptop or PC.
