WordPress Android App Version 3.1

The WordPress Android app version 3.1 is now available in the Google Play Store. This update brings robust statistics to the app experience, and makes keeping up with your favorite sites in the Reader even easier.

Native Statistics Details

Now, you can tap the bar chart in your Statistics to access more detailed stats. Tap a specific bar in the Days, Weeks, or Months views to see detailed data on your views and visitors.

General Changes

  • Automatic refresh: Statistics and Reader post lists automatically refresh when you open the app, so you always see the newest data.
  • Improved Reader experience: To make interacting on the go easier, we added comment likes to the Reader. You can also block blogs on Reader tag pages to customize your reading experience.
  • Updated blog preview. See screenshot below:

We’ve also temporarily disabled the live chat with Automattic support due to an issue with the library we’re using. We expect to re-enable it in the next version or two.

Bug Fixes

This version also comes with a bunch of bug fixes. Here’s a non-exhaustive list:

  • Improved notifications synchronization, which sometimes got stuck.
  • Fixed the ability to follow a blog by its URL.
  • Fixed broken blockquote styling in the comments view.
