The WordPress.com desktop app puts WordPress.com in your dock or taskbar. Use it to focus on your content and design with no other browser tabs to distract you, or to keep your sites readily accessible. The app is powered by the same technology that runs WordPress.com.
To edit your self-hosted WordPress (.org) website, you need to install the Jetpack plugin, which you can do by following the instructions here.
Once Jetpack is installed and connected to a WordPress.com account, make sure the Jetpack Manage module is enabled.
Focus on your content
Write and design with no other browser tabs to distract you. Switch easily between managing your WordPress sites and your favorite desktop apps.
Speed is a feature
The desktop app builds upon the already fast WordPress.com by bundling the entire site as a local copy. You get near-instant page-loads and less waiting around.
Not one size fits all
The WordPress.com desktop app will scale to any size. Do you need a small window on the side to keep your eye on notifications, or do want to expand to a truly full screen for a zen writing experience? Take your pick.
