Updates have been made in form of uploading videos, saving Local Drafts, Autosave draft feature, certain bug fixes and much more.
Chris Boyd of WordPress.org told:
We’re very happy to announce that the latest version of WordPress for iOS, Version 2.6, is now live in the App Store.
The video feature lets you Record, Upload, Attach and Play Videos within the App. iPhone 3GS users had been requesting for this moment to arrive for quiet sometime which gives them the ability to record a video within the app and upload it directly to a blog. This feature becomes even more powerful to publish videos from your iOS device to the web.
Users have been frustrated regarding losing posts saved as Local Drafts. After working for hours to publish a great post and seeing it disappear is enough to lose patience. WordPress.org have worked for over a month to fix this area of the app that handle Local Draft posts and pages. Apple’s Core Data technology has been used to save posts locally before they’re published or saved online. This will surely bring in stability and reliability to the way users spend time working on a post. The post can later be removed from your Local Drafts library once it has been published.
The Autosave draft feature is surely one of the best thing to happen when editing a post. If something goes wrong and you need to revert to an older version of a post, all you need to do is select previous version to restore it without an issue. A small grey WordPress logo will appear in the bottom right-hand corner to let you know that autosaves exist and you are safe.
The Add Blog/Site process is now a quick way to add their blogs, and giving WordPress.org users a faster, and more reliable experience when adding their sites.
Old Photos Tab have been converted into a new Media Library. Addition information about media items such as dimensions and file size as well as insert media items into a post have been added.
