Things are being put together quickly this week and launched as a new WordPress.com dashboard has been released publicly (which many of you have already experienced).
So, the question is: How do you like it?
- It should have a simple, uncluttered design; free of excessive decoration and focused on your content.
- It should use webfonts for beautiful, legible typography that’s consistent in every browser.
- It should have a responsive design that’s tailored to desktop computers, tablets, and smartphones.
- It should do all this while retaining the familiar, user-tested dashboard interface that millions of users already understand.
Do you think that they’ve succeeded in their stated goals? I believe that they’ve done a great job (and the responsive selector is opt-in, by the way).
In additional news, Windows Phone 2.2 has also been released this week, with the biggest addition of support for self-hosted galleries:
Version 2.2 of WordPress for Windows Phone is now available in the Windows Phone Store. It introduces gallery support for self-hosted sites running WordPress 3.5 or higher. It also resolves many of the outstanding issues and quirks that you have mentioned on the forums and on Twitter.
I’m not a user of Windows Phone, as I’ve shared previously, but it’s a passionate community, I’ll tell you what.
It makes me wonder if I’m missing something or if I’m not appreciating fully what Windows Phone can bring to the table?
Please tell me and I’ll give it a legitimate whirl in the near future, I promise!
Hope you guys are having a great week and not having update woes!
