Pull-to-Refresh and More Added in Latest Update

The latest update of WordPress for Android is now available. Version 2.7 brings some great new features along with it. Read on to find out more!


Pull to Refresh
You can now refresh content in the app by using the familiar pull-to-refresh gesture. Just swipe down on any screen in the app and you’ll get the freshest content available for that screen.

Performance Improvements

We also worked hard on making the app perform faster and more efficiently behind the scenes:

  • Your stats have been optimized to load and scroll faster than ever before.
  • Posts and Pages now support infinite scroll so you can easily load more content.
  • Media upgrades let you see content faster and scroll more smoothly.
  • We improved the post editor — it now uses less of your device’s memory when adding media to a post.

Much More

This release includes many more small enhancements and fixes. Curious what they are? Check out the GitHub milestone for more info.
