WLWMHead This post is for all the bloggers out there. I have been using Windows Live Writer (WLW) for some time now. We have covered WLW more than once here 7 Reasons Why You Should Try Out Windows Live Writer 2009 7 Reasons Why You Should Try Out Windows Live Writer 2009 Read More and here Five Things To Do After Installing Windows Live Writer Five Things To Do After Installing Windows Live Writer Read More . Now, you can use WLW on your Windows Mobile Device!

This is awesome for me as I do a lot of my work and writing on my Windows Mobile Device. I have a HTC Fuze aka the Touch Pro.

Let’s take a look at WLW Mobile Beta and how it works.

First, we start off by visiting the product site because this is a third-party application and not originally written by Microsoft.

We download the application which is a ZIP file that can be extracted to your device. You can store it anywhere but to execute it you need to browse to it using your File Explorer. Browsing to it you should see a screen similar to this:

From here all you need to do is hit that WLW.exe and it will launch. No installation necessary. After launching it for the first time, you will be greeted with this screen prompting you to set up your settings like so:

I clicked Save settings and was ready to set up my WordPress account for publishing to my personal Blog. To enter account information, I clicked on the Account Manager button as you can see below:

Now, we are ready to write a test post. I clicked OK and went back to the main menu. From there, I choose New Article and away I went!

When I was done, I hit next and saw a screen asking me if I want to publish this post or any others I have drafted on my device.

I hit Publish and the article was on its way to the Web after confirming the account I want to use. At that point, I got a Czech pop-up which said this:

It gave me two choices: OK or Cancel; but what the prompt said”¦ I had no idea! So, I hit OK!

I checked the web and the post was there in all it’s glory! I logged in to my Wp-Admin and deleted it. Now, I know I can post articles on the fly from my handheld device! Sweet!

    Nice article. The Czech pop-up says "At this step, internet connection will be established."

    (It still ain't that easy and cheap to get online with portable devices for ppl here but it's improving :-)
