Movable Type for iOS (app)

You might already know that the movable type admin is responsive.

That allows you to manage your movable type driven website easily also from your mobile device, be it a mobile phone or a tablet.

On July the 28th, 2015, Six Apart decided to further improve its admin interface for iOS and launched a movable type app called "Movable Type for iOS".

This application is available in the iTunes App Store.

It allows you to easily manage your content. From now on you could easily create, edit or remove articles wherever you are and at any time right from your iOS device.

If necessary, you could save your articles as draft, right from your smartphone.

This is a personal website and doesn't have anything to do with Six Apart nevertheless Chris Alden, the former Six Apart CEO, appreciated my idea when he saw it available online.
