We’ve redesigned the iOS app to work even better for publishing right from your tablet.
A New WordPress App Update, Designed for the iPad
Over the past few months we’ve been working to dramatically improve users’ experience on iPad — and we’re proud to share those with you now, in our WordPress app for iOS, available in the iTunes Store.
The apps were originally designed with only iPhones in mind, so we wanted to make better use of the space available on the iPad and especially iPad Pro, to maximize your productivity in the app. These changes shipped incrementally, with the very final ones being included in the 7.1 release that went out last week.
We’ve improved the My Sites management to make it easier to handle multiple sites on iPad. Now you can see the posts from that blog alongside the list of blogs, and site management is now all on one screen – no more back and forth!
Managing profiles follows the same pattern.
Notifications has been overhauled, too.
We’re really excited about these improvements and hope iPad users of WordPress will be, too! We look forward to continuing to improve your WordPress experience, no matter what device you use.
So, is this basically the reason why desktop users are at a design disadvantage now? The whole design changes in the past were made that you can basically can port or load it on mobile devices? That’s a sad progression of the WP service. I hope you give desktop users some love as well and bring them back the good old desktop design that had a much better usability.
I love it, but still miss a simple way to write on a self-hosted wordpress site along with my wordpress.com blog without log out and log in everytime. For example, I write at reaconaria.org and have a wordpress.com blog here.
Keep this as a suggestion for future updates but I understand if this isn’t possible 😉
Do we actually have a choice? No, of course not. The cyber world changes constantly, mostly under the name of improvement and who am I to say it is not so good. I am a golden oldie, aged 70, but I can doi it. I can keep up with all your altrnations and new fashioned ideas. I am sure it is good for us all. It keeps me on my toes learning the new ways. I never had a problem on the iPad in any case and my iPhone is really too small for blogging. Am wondering what the next develoopment will be. Yes, really exciting.
There was a time when people came home from work or school students home from school, she started working on their PC.
Since the evolution of i-Phone and i-Pad, the whole day working on the Internet. During breaks, at bus train, everywhere.
So this is really a huge advance.
I really like the improvements you have made to stats pages, a lot more info on performance, etc. I used to calculate that myself but nice to just see it done for me. However, wish you would fix something else. I usually use my laptop for editing posts. Why? Because in that format I can resize my photos and place them where I want them in the size I want them. Have to bring my laptop to write posts. iPad won’t let me that and the iPhone is just too small for editing. If you could make it so I can resize to whatever size I want, not just big or small, I wouldn’t have to haul my laptop with me!
Never stop doing for the best, thanks WP.
