Joooid main screenJoooid is an Android client for the Joomla CMS: it has been created to publish articles with images, galleries and a map indicating the GPS position where the article has been published from.

Among the features of Joooid are an article manager. The article manager allows you to browse, publish or trash articles. There's also a utility which uploads files from the Android device directly into the Joomla directory.

To start using Joooid you need to download and install it from the Android Market. Then, install the Joooid plugin (see instructions here). It's also possible to install some extra plugins to embed Google maps in your article and optionally a shadowbox plugin for the image gallery. The developer is currently working on a solution to embed YouTube videos as well.
