    Has anyone else tried to use this app? It installed and opens fine but when I try and log in I get a communication error. This is driving me nuts and makes the app completely useless! Thanks!

    I use it, and it works fine. Are you using a custom domain? If so, you have to tell the program where your blog specifically is, if it's not in the root folder.

    ie: www.xxx.com/blog

    You also have to make sure that XML-RPC Support is turned on in your blog.

    On the login screen for the app, I put my URL in which is Kasey.Alexandra's Blog and it still didn't go through. Also, where in the settings is the option to turn on the XML-RPC support. I used the Wordpress app on my BB Curve before switching with no problems.

    Oh then maybe you don't need XML RPC support on since its hosted AT wordpress.com -- didn't know it wasn't self hosted.

    Are you sure username and password are correct and URL is exactly correct as well?

    I know - stupid questions, but everything else should be plug & play.

    Yep, I'm sure. It doesn't say failed login or anything. It says
    "Connection Error
    org.xmlpul.v1.XmlPullParserException:unexpected type (position: TEXT XML-RPC server a...@1:42 in java.io.InputStreamReader@434db138"

    Oh thank God. I figured it out after doing some research on the support site for Wordpress. I had to insert a different blog url that was xml-rpc friendly. Thanks guys.

    I'm liking Wordpress too. Glad you figured out the error. The only thing I wish were different is for drafts on the Droid to be synced with drafts on my computer. You know, drafts should be held on their servers for easy synchronization.
