Almost eight months ago, word of a new Kickstarter called “Pressgram” had surfaced around the WordPress community to some praise, some criticism but mainly a lot of curiosity. This was after Instagram had begun to be a victim of the fiery rage of people who like to know what’s happening with their content (I’m guilty). The official WordPress app had been (and still is) lacking in photo customization for people who want to post things on the go. You could always edit them in some third-party app (iOS 7 filters weren’t a thing) and email/post them that way but who wants to work, right?
Two months ago, Pressgram was no longer the idea of John Saddington and was an actual living, breathing iOS app and WordPress plugin and the ranks rejoiced! Or, well, most of them.1
Now we’re two months in and people have either fallen head over heals for it or seen no point in having it. I fall in the middle. There’s so much potential to be had and a lot of my complaints seem to be features coming in 2.0 which is “a long ways off“.
For the record, I completely agree with both of these posts. I set up a separate account dedicated to Pressgram with distinct passwords. I believe the ToS terms have been cleaned up as many services have done in the past. ↩
