Perfect Choice for Anyone Who Despises Productivity
Hey. If you’re one of those productivity nerds who only likes things that help you get work done or accomplish the task they were created for, move on. We don’t have room for you on the Pixel Pumper Bandwagon. But if you want to spend an hour writing a detailed post with images, important links, hashtags, etc. and then see all of that fantastic productivity disappear right before your very eyes, climp on up. We are making a place for you next to the tubas right now.
Here are a few reasons you may want to use Pixel Pumper:
1. You love clean empty webpages with headers, sidebars, and footers, but absolutely no content at all.
2. You like pictures, but not on your blog.
3. You don’t have a blog, but if your laptop is ever stolen you want the perp to believe that maybe you do have a blog. Thereby keeping him busy while you look him up on “Find My Mac."
4. You want to prove the age-old maxim, “You Get What You Pay For.”
5. You hate blogging altogether.
I’m sure there are many other reasons. In fact I wrote a post about quite a few of them earlier but Pixel Pumper failed to pump those pixels to my site. Oh Pixel Pumper. You always keep me giggling.
Looks promising, but not quite there yet
I really wanted to like this a lot, but I cannot get it to publish no matter what. It does upload images to the wordpress install, but it always times out and does not finish the publish. If this worked, then it would be a very promising.
That being said, the editing was very good, the GUI clean and simple…reminded me of Blogo on how simple it was.
Anyways, with an 'HTTP Error 500’ on every try, I cannot recommend this at this stage. Will continue using the Wordpress frontend, which as cumbersome as it is, at least publishes stuff ;-)
Great app ! Just a request for my use case
I like the app, it is more practical for me to publish from this app than open the worpress admin panel. I usually publish several photos in my posts and would just love to drag n drop em to the content… Or maybe select more than one when clicking on “Add Photo”. For the rest, I like the overall simplicity of the UI, I prepare my post, include several photos, click publish and walk away, perefct.
