Thanks for stopping by! This blog is now hibernating because we have a great new home for all of the WordPress mobile apps: http://make.wordpress.org/mobile. See you there!

When I move between Android devices, I use Helium to back up first. Helium uses Androids built-in backup system, and some apps specifically disallow this backup for security purposes (Google Authenticator is an example). The WordPress app blocks this type of backup. Any reason why?
Posted 2.4 beta to make/mobile. This blog is going to migrated over there soon so please start following/participating there:
So right after I released 2.3.2 on Wednesday, a report came in from a user that he couldn’t set a featured image any longer. So that means 2.3.3 is coming soon :) It was an easy fix so will most likely release it on Monday.
Here’s the 2.3.3 build to try over the weekend: http://bit.ly/YsNUSm
Also, Google was very kind and featured the app in the ‘Play Picks’ section of Google Play! Check it out:
The 2.3.2 release is nearly ready. It fixes a few small (but important) issues as well as adds a new feature!
- Allows access to front-facing cameras on supported devices. Thanks for the patch shooh
- Manifest fix so that the app *should* be available for devices that don’t have GPS or network location.
- You can add comments to posts! Thanks for the patch jamesjhu
- Small bug fixes and reliability improvements
Here’s the build: http://bit.ly/18g0IKS
p.s. The latest commits haven’t been added to git or svn yet because of a problem with the server. As soon as it is back online I will push the latest changes and update related trac tickets.
Note to devs: There’s a new version of ActionBarSherlock out, please update your local version of the library. Using the new version should fix #510 so that’s a win.
Even with all of the major changes in 2.3, it looks like the release went really well! There’s been a few minor issues reported along with a few NullPointerExceptions that showed in the Google Play reports. @daniloercoli also discovered a bug where the app wasn’t persisting certain activities after you left the app.
Issues have been trac’d in the 2.3.1 milestone
All of these issues have been fixed up already and we’re on track for a 2.3.1 release on Monday. Build can be found here if you want to try it out over the weekend: http://bit.ly/11LQpNq
2.3 update is now live in Google Play! Thanks again to everyone that contributed and tested, you guys rock!
Thanks to everyone (over 150 of you!) that tried out the 2.3 beta! There was a lot of great feedback (a.k.a bugs) that came in that we fixed last week. There were actually quite a few changes so it makes sense to do a second beta to make sure it is a solid release.
Here’s a few things that have changed since beta 1:
- Updated translations
- Posts/Pages list doesn’t reset when rotating or viewing post preview
- ActionBar added to Edit Comment view
- Fixed welcome screen layout in landscape
So, try out beta 2!

As always, post feedback here or in a trac ticket.
It’s about time for the 2.3 beta, which is chock-full of awesome UI updates. ActionBar? Check. MenuDrawer? Check. More Holo goodness? Triple-check.
Because of all the UI updates, we’d really like your help in beta testing this new release. If you could please report in on which device you have tested with, it would really help us as well. In general, please poke around with the new UI and features, and let us know what you like/don’t like. If something is broken, be sure to let us know as well!
Here’s the download link, make sure your device allows installation from ‘Unknown Sources’ so that you can install the app.
While the beta is going I’m going to reach out to the WP-Polyglots to get the translation strings updated.
