WordPress for iOS 2.8 Is Out – Major New Features Inside, More Still Lacking

Posted May 20, 2011 5:57 pm by with 1 comment

Good news for all of you iOS fans – the long-awaited WordPress for iOS 2.8 is out! In addition to fixes (you find them in any release), this one boasts some new, cool features (you don’t find them that often). Your iOS blogging is now one step closer to getting awesome!

Let’s start with the good news first. The two new major features are Quick Photo and Stats and they alone are enough to make your day. Quick Photo, as the name implies, allows to catch the moment and blog it instantly. Here is how Quick Photo Looks like:

The Stats feature is also very useful because every serious blogger and webmaster is stats-obsessed. If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it – this is why Stats are important and it is great that you can access them from your mobile, too.

The third major feature are the new localization packages. There are language packages in 10 languages. If you want to learn more about what’s inside WordPress for iOS 2.8, check their official announcement.

The new features sound exciting but don’t get the wrong idea that this is a full-fledged blogging application. It still misses major features, so if you were dreaming of blogging only from your mobile, this won’t be the case. When more of the essential features are added, then you might start thinking of throwing out your PC and blogging exclusively from your mobile. Till that moment comes (if ever), you’d better stick to your PC for the heavy work and use your mobile only when you really have to.
