S60 wordpress client – the walk through

I created a walk through the other day for the developer showing how I imagined the client would work. It’s just a series of powerpoint slides but I hope it was useful for him.

I thought I’d post here too:

Slideshare hasn’t quite got all the formatting accurate as I used the current version of powerpoint to create it — but you get the idea.

Mirko, I don’t your comment post contained all your text — if you get a chance, email me or re-post?

Maybe my Safari for Windows messed up all my posting.

These were the two things i’d like to point out:

1) what about text formatting? I think it’s difficult to have a WYSIWYG XHTML editor in your mobile client. Maybe it’s better to have a kind of Textile formatting solution, using special characters, easy to type with a T9 keypad.
Let’s say in this way:

*word* -> bold
#word# -> italic
* word -> bullet list item
# word -> ordered list item
** h1
## h2
*# h3
### blockquote

and so on

I’ll stick with a few formatting options, nothing complicated, and with these two characters: consider you can easily type them with number 7 and 9 of your keypad.

2) what about blog stats?

I think it could be useful to have an option for tracking them: imagine you write a post you care about before going out for the weekend, and you don’t want to bring your laptop with you. You can track the post audience with such a feature.
