WordPress for iOS 3.9 is out and now available to download from the App Store. This release is one of our largest app releases to date. This update is remarkable both for the significant changes we’ve introduced, and for the level of dedication it received from our hard-working team members.
Version 3.9 includes a major visual redesign of the app. We decided to drop the sidebar navigation and embrace a tab bar-based layout. The app’s new design allowed us to add numerous visual improvements throughout, including revamped and enhanced Reader, Comments, and Notifications sections. We also created a seamless inline commenting experience to make it easier for you to engage with the content you love. Finally, we made visual improvements to the editing experience of posts and pages.
Our team has embraced the latest and greatest technologies that Apple has provided us with iOS 7 to deliver you the best app possible. Version 3.9 and future updates will require iOS 7.
The app also includes several other changes. On top of various bug fixes and performance improvements, it now supports deep-linking from Twitter, and features an improved login screen. Be sure to try it out.
