WordPress for Windows 8 is one of my must-have app for the OS, because there’s nothing like browsing Freshly Pressed and subscribed blog posts in the beautiful Metro environment.
So it’s quite a shame that its counterpart on WP8 is quite underwhelming. There are alternatives, sure, but the closest thing to a great app isn’t free, and the trial version doesn’t allow to view Freshly Pressed posts.
Then, I was browsing in the Books section (looking for a bible app, actually) when I chanced upon WP Explorer. I found the perfect app.
The app was just recently published (with a publish date of August 6). It was a great viewer because it instantly shows post from subscribed blogs, but it also shows Stats and Freshly Pressed. More importantly, it uses the same interface as its web counterpart.
How about blog posting? They said action speaks louder than words, and this post is fully made using the app.
