WordPress Android App Version 3.3

The WordPress Android app version 3.3 is now available in the Google Play Store. We’ve made a few user facing changes for this release, and focused on fixing small — but sometimes annoying — problems.

General Changes

  • We split up the post and the comment views in the Reader.
  • Live support is back; you can contact Automattic support within the application by going to “settings,” “help and support,” and tapping “contact us.”

Bug Fixes

  • Videos are now correctly resized to the screen width in the Reader.
  • Reader is no longer crashing with very long posts.
  • Web views on the notification screen are now working when all blogs are hidden.
  • Users now receive a notification that blank posts cannot be published.
