WordPress for Android LogoWhat’s New

Comment Editing:

You can now easily edit comments in the app. Just tap the new ‘Edit’ button when viewing a comment and you will be taken to a new screen where you can edit the comment information including the name, email, url, comment text, and status. Big thanks to contributor aerych for adding this feature!

Post Autosave:

To better protect the content you are creating, the app will now autosave posts you are editing every 60 seconds. We’ve also added a safeguard that will make sure that you want to overwrite local changes you’ve made to a post before refreshing the posts list.

New Scaled Image Setting:

Instead of only linking to the full size image, you can now set the width of the linked image to whatever you’d like. To activate the new setting, tap ‘Settings’ and then tap the ‘Upload and link to scaled image’ checkbox. Another big thanks to contributor dolittledk for adding this feature!

Additional Changes:

In addition to these great features, there’s also some other great new additions in the app:

  • Small updates to the UI
  • New app icon
  • Reliability improvements
  • Performance tweaks
