WordPress Revamps Its iOS App With Quick Photos & Analytics

Automattic has released a major improvement to its WordPress iOS app, fixing a variety of bugs while adding analytics and photo-sharing features.

Version 2.8 of the app fixes 31 different bugs, including errors that caused 75% of all app crashes. Issues with external keyboards and adding categories on the iPad have been resolved.

The app also comes with two new features: a Quick Photo button and a Stats section. The Quick Photo feature lets you snap a photo, quickly write a blog post around it, and publish. It’s similar to PicPosterous, Posterous’s rapid blogging iPhone app. WordPress says the feature is only available for iPhone, at least for now.

The other major addition is Stats. This feature provides a quick way to see daily, weekly and monthly pageviews, along with information such as top referrers and post views. The feature is available for all blogs. but self-hosted blogs need to have either Jetpack or the Stats plugin to activate it.

In addition to the new features, Automattic announced it has finally localized the app and added support for 10 languages, including Croatian, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.

Combined, these changes make the WordPress app a significantly more useful tool for keeping your blog up-to-date. We’ve been frustrated many times by the app’s instability, so it’s good to see that most of the bugs that cause it to crash have been addressed. Writing blog posts from an iPhone or iPad is still nowhere as easy as writing one on a laptop, though.
