Not so long ago, Automattic released the WordPress desktop app for all major platforms, including Linux. The idea of using a website via a dedicated desktop app instead of a browser may sound silly, but after having used the app for a while, I must admit that it makes a lot of sense.

First of all, everything in the app is faster: navigating through pages and sections, loading articles, customizing -- there are almost no delays or waiting time. As a blogger, you'll appreciate the new streamlined and improved writing interface that is a nice departure from WordPRess' original cluttered editing screen. And as a reader, you'll find the integrated Reader module quite handy, as it allows you to peruse articles from blogs you follow. Here, you can also easily manage your subscriptions, get recommendations on which blogs to follow, and access blog posts you like.

Of course, you can do all that from the convenience of your favorite browser, but the WordPress desktop app makes writing and reading more efficient and pleasurable.
