What is Azure?

Azure is a free blog client. It allows you to create and edit posts for your weblog. It runs on your phone, so you can can now blog from wherever your mobile phone can get usable signal reception.

Azure can also run on PDAs like Palms and Handsprings, or any other device with a Java J2ME runtime.

At the moment, Azure is very new software, so it has a few bugs. If you find any bugs that are not in the Known Problems section of the Release Notes, please let me know and I'll fix them as soon as I can.

Azure is written by Michael Gratton. Free free to have a laugh at my blog, Volition, which is updated in part using Azure. =)
