BlogPress does not have a smartphone app. We are in no way associated with the BlogPress app. That’s just a bit of very unfortunate naming. :0

Instead, we recommend the FREE app provided by WordPress.

More info here:  https://apps.wordpress.org/

Here are the detailed setup instruction for iOS and Android devices

Android –  https://apps.wordpress.org/support/#faq-android-gs1

Here’s the summary…

Step 1: Go to the app store and download the app 

Step 2: Once it’s installed, open the app,  click on the link at the bottom that says “Add Self Hosted Site.”

You do NOT need a WordPress.com account to manage your BlogPress blog – do NOT attempt to login to WordPress.com or the connection will fail. (That’s the one confusing part about the app setup :))

Step 3: And then enter the following information.

username: your blogpress username
password: enter your blogpress password here
URL:  Your BlogPress blog address (e.g. https://myblog.theblogpress.com)

Step 4: You’ll then see your site – just click on the name of the site and you’ll be able to write, edit, preview, and publish posts. 

When you’re in the actual post editor, you’ll see a link at the bottom right to add images.
