WordPress for iOS 4.3 Released

WordPress for iOS 4.3 is here! The download is available from the App Store. Here’s a glimpse at the latest updates:

Various stats improvements

We know you love checking your stats on the go, wherever you may be. On your Stats page, you can now see more details in the stats chart in your Visitors and Views. Just tap on any view — Days, Weeks, Months — and then click on a particular day, week, or month to view specific views and visitors stats for that item.

Follow more sites in your Reader

You can now follow a blog or website, on WordPress.com and elsewhere on the web, by adding its URL. In your Reader, click on the tag at the top right of the screen, and enter the URL of the site you’d like to follow:

After you click “Done,” you’ll see a “Followed” message on the screen that confirms you’ve successfully followed the site.

Other updates and fixes

In addition, we’ve provided initial support for iOS 8 in preparation for upcoming features — we’re excited about what’s to come! We’ve also released numerous stability updates, including fixes for errors that affected some users, including a crash when opening the Reader, as well as an error for live chat users who were unable to follow up on their support requests.

As usual, we’re hard at work on the next release, which will include an iOS 8 “Today” extension to view stats, a major interface update for notifications and a limited rollout of a new WYSIWYG post editor.

Many thanks to the contributors who worked on this release: Aaron Douglas, Brad Angelcyk, Cyril Chandelier, Dan Roundhill, David Filip, Eric Johnson, Jorge Bernal, Jorge Leandro Perez, Matt Bumgardner, Oguz Kocer and Sendhil Panchadsaram.
