Blogging on the go just got easier and more fun: Introducing WordPress for iOS 7
Apple just released the new version of their mobile operating system, iOS 7, with a new user interface that streamlines both form and function — it’s colorful and intuitive, but stripped-down and clean. Apple fans have been abuzz since they announced the update a few months ago, and we started working right away to refresh the WordPress mobile app.
Now, the app aligns with the best of WordPress and Apple and is simpler (and more fun!) to use. We’re proud to present the WordPress app for iOS 7!
The update brings the mobile app design in line with the current WordPress dashboard, and introduces a colorful navigation bar and new icons that feel oh-so-Apple… but in a distinctly WordPress way:
The app now uses the Open Sans typeface, the open-source font that works so well on WordPress.com. We also updated all the colors, bringing a brighter, fresher feel to the app experience. (And while we were at it, we fixed a few pesky bugs.) We think you’ll find the new app experience cheerful, consistent, and intuitive.
We’re also at work on a few awesome additions for the next version, including a theme selector and a revamped visual editor to simplify posting on the go. iPad users can also look forward to an update soon — we’ll be further streamlining the interface for the bigger screen.
We’re constantly iterating on the app, and would love to hear what you think in the comments. How can we make mobile blogging even better? Let us know; we love feedback.
Now download the app from the app store, get out there and blog!
