    been trying to decide if i want an iphone or not? Since Verizon has the iphone now, I’ve comtemplated rather I want to get the iphone 4 now, or wait until iphone 5 is released. In the meantime, I have the ipod touch, not the current generation but the generation before that where they added a mic and camera to it. I wish I had those things, but I keep thinking my 2 year contract isn’t up until January 2012 anyway I figured by then iphone 5 would be out and may be able to get iphone 5 cheaper at the ‘new every 2′ price then the iphone 4 now at full price

      For some reason that never works for me. I must be addicted to Apple gadgets. I always get tricked into standing in line on launch day, no matter when my contract is up. :(

    It’s good to see that they addressing the app stability and scaling it with the language translations, but I’m still not satisfied with the app yet. I think the User Experience needs a complete overhaul and formatting tools need to be integrated.

    I remember reviewing an older version of WordPress for iPad a few months ago. This was like a joke, extremely difficult to use as to being really useless. I stayed away from this WordPress and all the bad publicity it received (and deserved!).

    Now I shall have a look at this new version see if it is useable. I like the fact it seems to allow easy uploading of pictures.

    As an alternative there is something called Blogsy for iPad which i believe is one (if not) the best blogging software for iPad. I gave it a try and loved it. Although I believe until the next version it cannot upload pictures. (I am not affiliated in any way with the Blogsy people BTW! thought I would mention).

    Maybe this new WordPress will be a new FREE alternative to Blogsy…

    take care
