Looks like upgrading to WordPress 2.6 from 2.5.1 is really easy. Delete a wp-admin and wp-includes directories, save your old wp-config.php file, upload new files, copy values from old wp-config.php file into new file, go to admin screen to do a quick database upgrade, and wha-la, you’re done! Hopefully everyone has had the same experience I’ve had, and no one has had to completely reinstall WordPress like I had to awhile back (what a pain!). Here’s some instructions on upgrading to WordPress 2.6 in case you can’t find it:

WordPress for iPhone: Pretty Good

D/led the WordPress for iPhone app the other day.  Smooth setup for my blog; only usable up to version 2.5.1, so couldn’t get all my blogs on it, but not a big deal.  Nice interface, easy to post pictures and text, which a lot of the other blog apps dont have (seems most just do pictures, which i find odd. wouldn’t it be easier to do just text? oh well).  Easy to add categories and tags, which i really like.  it finds those on your site, so big props there.  it also stores your drafts on your iphone, which is nice for when you’re out of network range, but just gotta write a blog post about something (see my previous post about my phloxes).  The only thing I didn’t like about it was that figuring out how to actually get the blog post up was a little difficult.  There wasn’t a ‘save’ or ‘publish’ button on the site, you have to set the post’s status to ‘published‘ or whatnot.  So that wasn’t exactly clear, but after messing around with it for awhile I figured it out.  All in all, a really nice app that integrates really well with your blog.  A must-have for wordpress users! 4/5 stars
