Generic errors. Gotta love ’em.

It’s widely known that I enjoy mobile blogging, and for the iPhone, there’s one of two options; the official WordPress app for iPhone, or blogging via email with a service like Posterous and it’s “Post Everywhere” integration.

While the WordPress app is unbeatable for purely text posts, I’m not a huge fan of the way it handles pictures, placing them at the bottom of the post, right after all the text commentary. That would be okay if there was an option to edit how the final post will look, but as far as I can tell, there isn’t.

Sometimes though, the app itself does weird things – as you can see in the screenshot above. I’m not sure whether the error describes an issue with the app, or the data connection (not dissimilar to Tweetie’s “secure connection failed” messages [which could also be attributed to Twitter itself, but that’s another story]).

There’s also another interesting story regarding the error itself – but I’ll save that for another time.
