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.


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.


Reading View

Enhanced reading view with redesigned actions on discover posts. Now listen to posts, share them and view comments. Some of these features have been available to our Windows users for a while.


See example below

In addition to the actions, we have a floating like button as well. Let us know if you would like this button or want it to be moved to the actions. Sound off in comments!

Image viewer

We don’t just stop here for the reading view! We have also added a new image viewer for all posts in reader view. Navigate through all the images in the post at once with this new feature.


experience

We have updated the sign-in experience to match the Windows platform. As always we support both and self hosted blogs (*with JetPack). For help on sign-in please visit our Help section

Dark themed editor

We have added a dark themed editor for our Windows users. On Android the dark theme editor still needs some polish, although we do offer a less optimized version for now.

Unified Settings

We have worked to keep our settings page nearly identical for Windows and Android. Mange your connected blogs, purchases, preferences and more form the settings page. You can even connect with us directly, select Suggestions and feedback option.
