Wordpress for iOS 2.9 Update Brings Text Formatting and Full Screen Editing

Wordpress for iOS has received a substantial update to version 2.9, and this time around it brings a modified keyboard for text formatting and also offers full screen editing. It’s taken some time, but Wordpress for iOS finally has gotten to the point where it’s actually usable. I still prefer BlogPress, though.

Here’s what’s new:

  • A Feature-Rich Content Editor. Now you can easily format text, make bulleted lists, create links, and do all kinds of other fancy stuff. (It’s about time, right?)
  • Full Screen Editing. No more teeny-weeny content editor — now you can view more text at a time while you post on the go.
  • Reading Made Easy. Keeping track of your favorite blogs has never been easier. Browse all the latest posts on blogs you follow in one place, right from your iPhone.


  • Quick Photo will now use the post format for images (if your theme supports it).
  • You can now post pictures that you’ve already taken with Quick Photo.
  • Your stats referrer links and comment links can now be opened right from this app.
