It surely has been a while, WordPress. We last covered the blogging app for Windows Phone back in October last year when the official offering hit version 1.4. The WordPress team has since released a number of updates, and as of yesterday we're now at 1.7.
Enabling bloggers who own Windows Phones to connect, manage and create articles on WordPress installations, the app is a must-have for those who require convenient access to their websites. So what's new?
Aside from the all important support for Windows Phone 8, which has just been released, the latest release includes the following:
- Added support for Local Drafts
- Added support for Post Formats
- Added image positioning option
- Now available in Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil) and Portuguese (Portugal).
- Translation updates
- Bug fixes and reliability improvements
You can download WordPress from the Windows Phone Store for free.
