WordPress for Android Version 1.2: Geotagging and Video Upload

WordPress for Android version 1.2 has been released to Android Market. Some great new features have been added:

  • Video upload and video sharing to a new WordPress post.  If you have a WordPress.com blog, video upload works great with VideoPress.  If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog, you may need to install the PJW Mime Config plugin to allow the 3gp video files to be uploaded to your blog.
  • Post geotagging support (enable geotagging first in the blog settings window). If you are running a self-hosted blog, install the geolocation plugin to show your location.
  • HTC Tattoo Android Market fix.

Here’s a few screenshots of the new features:

Instructions for installing WordPress for Android can be found on the Download page.

      That’s a timeout error, most likely your mobile network was having issues at the time?

    what does that mean?

    • Dan

      Could mean that your blog is down, or that your phone’s internet connection was spotty. Tried again lately?
