WordPress for iPhone Version 2.3.1 now in the App Store

[Update: We identified a bug in version 2.3 that can cause the app to crash if you post without geotagging.  Version 2.3.1 is now available on the App Store.]

The biggest new feature in this version is support for geotagging for WordPress.com blogs. It’s a very intuitive interface, and we have really high hopes to build on top of this initial support in future releases. For self-hosted WordPress sites, you can post with geotagging turned on, but nothing will be displayed quite yet on your site, although the data will be saved. In the coming days we will be releasing a plugin to provide geotagging display support for self-hosted WordPress. We’ll post about the plugin here on this blog.

This version also includes a couple of UI improvements, a bug fix for the “more” tag, and adds the ability to load more posts and pages beyond the default number chosen in your blog settings.

For support and feedback, please head over to the WordPress for iPhone forums. And as always, you can track and get involved with this Open Source development project by clicking over to the Making WordPress for iPhone blog. We’ve got some exciting developments in the queue for version 2.4 !

And an exciting number to share with all of you. Back in November 2009 some of you may remember that we posted that over 20,000 people had installed the WordPress app on their iPhones and iPods. Today, just a few months later, that number now stands at over 250,000 !
