Automattic launching a Windows version

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.

With the extensive use of JavaScript, moving from one tab to another is pretty smooth. From the dashboard you can read the latest WordPress.com posts and from the reader view and manage your WordPress websites/blogs. The app auto-saves the work regularly and allows you to preview your posts in your site’s template.
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.
