iApps: WordPress for iPhone v1.2 includes many anticipated updates

WordPress for iPhone 1.2

Version 1.2 of Automattic's WordPress for iPhone (and iPod touch) popped up in the App Store updates section earlier today. For anyone who uses the WordPress blogging platform and an iPhone / iPod touch, this new version brings invaluable features to the table (er, touch screen) including:
  • Landscape mode with "extra wide keyboard"
  • Link creation help
  • Support for editing and creating Pages (WP 2.7 or higher/WordPress.com req'd)
  • Comment moderation (WP 2.7 or higher/WordPress.com req'd)
  • Asynchronous publishing
  • Photo resizing options
While the application has always provided for relatively capable mobile (text-centric) blogging, it has lacked in its administrative capabilities until now. The newly added features, specifically the ability to moderate comments and the option to edit/update posts in landscape mode, finally bring this iApp up to speed. WordPress for iPhone (and iPod touch) is free and available in the App Store (iTunes link).
