Blog software publisher WordPress today announced that WordPress for iPhone 2 [App Store, Free] is now available. The new version, which is a separate application from the original WordPress app and thus can not be obtained via the App Store's update mechanism, brings a number of new features for those looking to administer their WordPress-based blogs on the go. The most notable changes include:
- Faster, more efficient user interface with various other refinements and bug fixes
- Keychain storage of passwords
- Automatic saving and restoration of blog posts in case of loss of network connection
Our efforts were focused on creating a better user experience -- the beginnings of a user interface overhaul that we'll continue with the next version, and eliminating the bugs and incompatibilities with some self-hosted WordPress setups that was the source of the majority of the support requests we see in the forum.
