Automattic, the company behind WordPress, launched a windows version only two weeks after launching an OS X app. The new app combines web technology with native features like operating system integrations, offline features and notifications, you could say it’s like the Slack desktop app.
The editor is definitely one of the most important features creating an environment where “writing” is the center of the action, and that’s why Automatic has only a few buttons on the screen.
Currently the new WordPress app works with any WordPress site using the Jetpack plugin and any blog hosted at WordPress.com. A Linux version is coming soon.
