iPhone App FAIL

Posted By on December 7, 2009

I know I haven’t posted in a long time. But I was busy last week getting ready for my trip to Atlanta this past weekend. And while I was in Atlanta, I was busy hanging out with Ali and her kids, coloring and drinking wine, so I didn’t post.

I’m back from my trip. It’s almost midnight and I’m pissed off because I spent about an hour on the plane typing a VERY LONG POST into my WordPress app on my iPhone. I typed a whole fucking post and now? It is GONE. Saved it as a draft and it is nowhere to be found. Fucking technology. Now I know…..DO NOT USE THE WORDPRESS IPHONE APP! HULK SMASH!

So you’ll have to wait to hear more about my trip tomorrow. Because I’m exhausted and I need to go to work tomorrow. Plus I should probably plan to get up earlier since it is supposed to SNOW tonight.

But I will share with you one highlight from my trip. On Saturday night, I went to Darcey’s holiday party at her office. I met a friend of hers who no longer works for her company, but is a consultant. At Slalom Consulting. Which is the place that fired me for this here website. So, small world, huh?

She was very nice and I didn’t hold it against her that she works there. Plus, she also agrees Slalom is a stupid name.

And now, my bed is calling my name. Because it’s cold in here. Because I turned the heat off while I was out of town. Good thing the cats have fur.

Kristabella out.

    oh that is so sad. I still can’t get the gmail app to work on my Ipod Touch.

    Get a good night sleep!

  2. Which version of the WordPress app are you using? They have a new one (you won’t get it from updates, it’s a separate download) called WordPress 2. It seems much better than the previous one.

    no snow day??

    AND that right there is why I NEVER write blog posts on my iphone…because things like that ALWAYS happen to me.

  4. I can’t manage to type fast enough (read-without a million typos) on my phone to construct a whole post. You are officially my hero.

  5. Oh, I’m glad I didn’t try out the WordPress app because that would piss me off enough to curse iphones forever.

    I’d be so pissed, too. Stupid iPhone app. (Leaving this comment I got a WordPress error! haha!)

    I’ve never been able to get the WP App to work. It’s not you, babe.

    Envious of your trip! Maybe I should go to Atlanta…

    Slalom is a stupid name. Sorry you dealt with crap and the iPhone app crapped out on you.

    I love the snow…but not the stupidness that it brings along with it. My commute was 2 hours into work this morning – I know you’re jealous. Looks like I’ll be getting up even earlier on Wednesday morning to deal with the snow they are predicting.

    I can barely write an email on my iPhone let alone a blog post. But, that app does work for me SOMETIMES.

    KJ, I just checked out your archives and Slalom. Eeew! That is the sorriest ass name, website and positioning for an IT consulting services firm I’ve ever seen. And I checked CEO dude’s profile and he’s lame too. Seriously, you should believe me because I used to work for marchFIRST before it imploded. No. Lie. And I can sniff B.S. copywriting about consulting because I used to do it for a living. Phew! They did you a favor, but man I bit my fingernails until your riveting conclusion. Goodonya.

    I just found out a friend’s husband works for them, so weird timing on your post.

    I signed a verrrry similiar severance agreement myself in 2007. Except mine technically means I could never criticize Bud Selig or any baseball player or umpiring call ever in any forum. Which is so many kinds of lame that I don’t even care if they tried to make me pay up. My lawyer said it would be hard to make stand up with such vague language anyway. But I feel your pain!
