The WordPress for iOS mobile app has received a significant update with a slew of bug fixes and the following new features:

  • Video: “record video within the app and then upload it directly to a blog.”
  • Local Drafts: “save posts locally before they’re published or saved online.”
  • Autosaves: “If something happens and you need to revert to an older version of a post, you can just select a previous version and restore it without issue.”
  • Setup Process: “allowing users a quick way to add their blogs, and giving users a faster, more streamlined experience when adding their sites.”
  • Media Library: “a new Media Library more along the lines of what you’re used to with WordPress.”

This release would not have been possible without your feedback and beta testing skills, so keep doing whatever you can to make each release better than the last!

Despite all the bug fixes, I had to re-enter the password for every blog that I manage with the app. It was a minor inconvenience, but it still beats using the admin panel in Mobile Safari.

Do you use the WordPress for iOS mobile app? What do you think of the new features?

    Updated to WordPress for iOS v2.6 as soon as it came out. Soon as it was done updating, i fired it up and it crashed. Tried several times but still the same. Tried the delete-reinstall trick but it still keeps on crashing so I can’t use it anymore. Checked out the app reviews and most of the users who updated to v2.6 are experiencing the same issue. Hope the app gets fixed soon coz I can’t use it right now.

    Btw, I have an iPhone 3GS running on iOS 3.1.3

    I am using the app on an iPad. It is working better now. Works best on .com on .org I am having problems with picture resizing. It is a great app for managing comments and doing draft posts but not good for much else.
