For this post, I would love to share a great news – WordPress for Iphone 2 has just been launched!

As most of us know, the app has been developed to keep up with the latest ipod touch and iphone firmware which has better functions and capabilities. With this new version of this WordPress app, it will bring better experience for WordPress bloggers either your are a WordPress.com or self hosted WordPress user blogger.

The major aspects that have been taken into account in the development of this version is to keep at minimal level of the bugs in the app and incompatibility issues with some self-hosted WordPress bloggers.

So, the features and fixes that you will find in the version 2 of the WordPress app are:

  • A new, more efficient user interface that makes it faster to switch between comments, posts, and pages.
  • Various user interface refinements and bug fixes
  • New Comments interface, with Gravatars and the author URL shown in the comment list
  • Passwords are now stored in the keychain
  • Posts are now automatically saved and restored if network connection is lost during publishing
  • Added persistence, so the app re-opens in the blog you last used
  • Added an interface for manually entering the XMLRPC endpoint for non-standard setups
  • Fixed rotation-related visual glitches
  • Fixed errors where malformed XML prevented access to XMLRPC endpoint
  • Fixed edge case where local drafts were sometimes not saved
  • Fixed the order of photos so that they’re displayed in the order they’re uploaded

    If you want to know more about this latest news, you can head to its official announcement page at WordPress for iPhone 2 now available in the App Store.

    By the way, to keep up with a lot of support requests, a specific forum has been launched to cater this problem at WordPress for Iphone Forum and there is also a blog – Making WordPress for Iphone that will be used as the place where any new features that will appear in the nest version be announced, keep you up to date on the progress of the app development and to be the place where you can share your idea and opinion with the WordPress team.

      I show some awesome updates for iPhone users. Good to see wordpress 2 for iPhone users. Unfortunately I don’t own no iPhone so I couldn’t try it. Few days back they have released photoshop for iPhone users which is a really cool application.

    6. That would have been great if they could think other touch phone brands, such as Nokia.
