It is important to note here that the app is not actually a full-featured WordPress publishing tool for self-installs, but rather offers a way to browse content from WordPress.com and instantly reblog it. With the app, you will also be able to share photos links and quotes from any app on your blog.

The Metro-focused interface offers a unique look with a focus on typographic elements. It is certainly something impressive for the WordPress app. If this is so impressive, how the other apps will come out to be. We have to wait for this. A description of the applications is read as follows:

Beyond just reblogging, you can share content from any app in Windows 8 to your WordPress.com blog. Just open the Share charm, and you’ll find a posting interface customized to the type of content you’re sharing — whether that’s text selected on a web page, or a picture from your photo library.

One can also opt for Windows 8’s “Semantic Zoom” feature, a feature primarily a version of “pinch-to-zoom” gesture available on tablet devices.

If you already have the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, you can download the app here. However, if you still have to get your share of Windows 8 Consumer Preview, you can get it here.
