How to Create an App for a WordPress Blog Using a Plugin

A few days ago, we announced our new WordPress plugin, and we gave a quick explanation of how to use it. We decided to make sure that absolutely everyone with a WordPress site or blog could follow along and make an app, so we thought we’d go through the process again, step by step, with screen shots. Since our own blog is a WordPress blog, we decided it was best to show it on our own blog!

Before you begin, please make sure you have the login and password information for your WordPress-powered site. You might need the FTP login for your WordPress-powered website too.

You’ll also need to have one of these plugins installed: WordPress Mobile Pack or Carrington Mobile Theme. If neither of these are installed, follow the instructions below for installing a plugin before you install the AppsGeyser plugin to install one of these.
