Studio for WP app is available on multiple platforms including Windows 10 PC, Windows 10 Mobile, Windows Phone 8.1, Android and Alexa enabled devices.
Earlier last week, we ran into a login issue with Windows 10 Mobile devices. Our investigation revealed that this issue is due to updated login pages at WordPress.com and causing crashes on Windows 10 Mobile devices, including from the browser. Since Microsoft is no longer updating Windows 10 devices except for security fixes, we do not expect a fix very soon.
Introducing login with Authorization code
For Windows 10 Mobile devices, we are enabling a feature called ‘Login with Authorization code‘. When adding a blog to your account, you will now be prompted to enter an authorization code instead of your regular sign-in process.
You can get the authorization code using any our app on any other platform or device. Supported devices include Windows 10 PC and Android devices.
How to get the authorization code
Login using the regular sign-in process on our ‘Studio for WP’ app on PC/Android device.
Head over to Settings and click Accounts.
Tap and hold the account you wish to get authorization code, and select ‘copy auth code’.
Authorization code is coped to clipboard, you may send it to your Windows 10 Mobile phone using any email, text, chat apps like WhatsApp or any other app.
To get latest features, we recommend using our Windows 10 PC and Android app. We may re-enable login using regular process on Windows 10 Mobile, if the login issue fixed either by WordPress or Microsoft.
Please get in touch with us for any issues with login on any of our apps.

Please let your readers and other bloggers know about the apps.
I have been personally developing the app for a few months in Android and since 2012 for Windows.
I was notified by Google this month that our Android app has been removed from the Google Play store.
Automattic requested the removal as we use the name “WordPress” in the app title. This is not allowed. I am sorry about that if I had known earlier I would have not named my app this way.
I have offered to rename by app and remove the word “WordPress” from the app title. However, the concerned contact from Automattic has not responded to my proposed solution. Further, Google will not reinstate the app without a contact from Automattic.
I am trying to get the app reinstated in some manner. If this does not workout, I will try to create another app with a different branding.
Its been a month since we started work on our Universal App template for our WordPress application.
This is a complete rewrite of the application in a new format. Majority of the features have been incorporated into the new version. There might be new bugs or even bugs carried over from the previous version. We will surely resolve those.
We chose the new format to enable us to unlock new features like background upload of images, better handling of data and much more.
If thing go smooth, an update should be available soon. Please note that you would most likely need to add your blog again to the app.
Here’s a preview of things to come:
Things will change till the final version.

We would like to thank DVLUP for mentioning our app on your site. Its good to have our efforts recognized by the Windows Phone community. Here’s what they had to say:
WordPress for Phone
For many, WordPress is a blog platform of choice. If that’s the case for you, dear reader, then you need WordPress for Phone, an app that enables you to read “Freshly Pressed” posts, see your blog stats and even edit and publish a post on your phone.
Enabling us to manage a WordPress site is great, but one thing we love about this app is how you can explore and see what’s being written across other WordPress blogs. In fact, using WordPress Reader, you can read and stay up to date on those blogs you’ve subscribed to on WordPress.com.
Congratulations! to all the other apps that got featured. See them all on DVLUP
