WordPress App Update Brings Improvements, Push Notifications For ‘Everything’



The official WordPress app for iOS has been updated to introduce a number of new features, including push notifications for “everything happening on your blog.” The company has also improved the way in which you manage comments, allowing you to view, moderate, and edit them from one screen.

WordPress already offered push notifications for new comments, but now you can receive them for pretty much anything — including replies, new followers, and new likes. And you can customize these, too, so you don’t have to get them all if you don’t want to.

In the new Notifications view, you’ll see all of your alerts, including stats highlights, all in one place. You’ll also see all new notifications regardless of where you are in the app, so you’ll never miss a thing again. In addition to this, you’ll be able to view, moderate, and reply to comments from one screen — independent of your blog.

The update also brings some bug fixes, according to the WordPress blog.

Users with multisite self-hosted blogs can now correctly view stats for sites they belong to (ticket #1528). A particularly nasty bug which resulted in the possibility of losing your offline drafts has also been fixed (ticket# 1545). A big thank you to everyone reporting issues, it’s been very helpful in finding these quirks and resolving them once and for all.

You can download WordPress version 3.4 now from the App Store using the source link below.
