App Updates: WordPress for Android and Windows

Its been a little more than two months since we published our Android app. Since then we have released more than 25 app updates, and continue to do so every now and then.

We would like to give a summary of new features that we have released on Android and Windows.

Security

We have added new security feature  for protection of your blog and posts that you publish. We now require your fingerprint every time you try to publish a post.

If your device does not have a fingerprint scanner, not to worry. We also support key code as a backup option.

This feature is headed for Windows users very soon.

Editor Updates

Ever lost a blog post edits? Now avoid accidental loss of edits. We have added a new message prompt when going back from editor.

April Update: General Bug fixes

We have a new update in the store for Windows 10 UWP app. There is no change for the Windows Phone 8.1 app as of now.

Also in the update is a new layout for Reader section. The reader posts will now adapt and change layout depending on the screen size and device. Phones will continue to use the existing layout.

We plan to add multiple layout options in future update. Let us know if the new layout feature is good or bad, sound off in comments.

When using a touch screen device with a on screen keyboard or navigation bar, like a tablet or a phone, the bottom of the screen would get cut-off. We have updated the way we resize the application content in these scenarios. Give it a try!

Other bug fixes include a fix for the discover tab not showing posts and some fixes for explore tab.
