WordPress for iPhone and iPad version 2.6

WordPress for the iPhone and iPad v2.6 has just been released. With this new version, you can now record, upload, attach and play videos within the application. As video becomes an increasingly important part of blogging, this functionality will be invaluable for bloggers on the move.

Here is a complete list of the new features:

_Video. Record, upload, attach, and play videos within the app. Yay for being able to catch your friends’ and co-workers’ most embarrassing shenanigans creative moments with iPhone video and publish them immediately for all the world to see on your WordPress site.
_A total rewrite of the way local drafts are handled, to prevent the unintentional loss of your pending posts.
_Autosave/post revisions. Bam! One of the “oh, thank goodness” features of the web app makes it into the iOS version.
_Easier setup. Faster and easier process for adding your sites to the app.
_Media Library. We’re gradually getting closer to the media management you’re used to in the web app.

There are also numerous bugfixes and performance enhancements in this release, so if you haven’t been using the app lately, you should consider giving it another try. I’m personally pretty excited to start using the iPhone version more often now that there are all these fixes and new features. Especially the video upload. You know, for those creative moments that make life fun.

You can read the full 2.6 release post on the WordPress for iOS blog, and can download v2.6 from iTunes/the app store. Happy mobile blogging!

Not an iPhone user? We’ve still got your on-the-go back! Check out the WordPress apps for Android, Blackberry, and Nokia (beta). They’re all 100% GPL, of course, and we’re always looking for contributors to the development projects, so check the blogs if you have mobile dev skills and want to get involved.

    I updated my wordpress app to latest 2.6 version and first thing which I did was to try new video post thing..
    As soon as I ended up recording video and tried adding into my post (from iPhone), it crashed…
    I thought latest version solved lots of bugs..but I believe it’s still there…
    Anyways I welcome new feature and they are really useful…

    You should really think about building up this blog into a major player in this market. You clearly have a fundamental understanding of the topics all of us are searching for on this blog anyways and you could potentially even earn a dollar or two off of some ads. I would dive into following recent headlines and raising the volume of posts you put up and I guarantee you’d begin seeing some good traffic soon. Just an idea, good luck regardless!
