Version 2.2 of WordPress for Windows Phone is now available in the Windows Phone Store. It introduces gallery support for self-hosted sites running WordPress 3.5 or higher. It also resolves many of the outstanding issues and quirks that you have mentioned on the forums and on Twitter.
Galleries are a great way to share pictures with your friends and followers. An image gallery will display thumbnails for all images attached to a particular post or page. Readers can tap or click any image to launch the gallery full-screen, displaying huge versions of your images.
You can create a gallery straight from your device by attaching two or more pictures to a post or a page. You can even customize the appearance of a gallery by tapping the “gallery settings” button and choosing the best options for your site.
You have great control over how the gallery will be displayed: as a thumbnail grid, or as a slideshow. Both gallery types offer a lot of options to choose, not limited to: random order, page or file attachment.
Below is an example of an image gallery using the default thumbnail setting. If you click on any of the images you will be able to see what the carousel view looks like:
