WordPress for Android: Version 4.4

Hello, WordPress users! Version 4.4 of the WordPress for Android app is now available in the Google Play Store! This version comes packed with some major improvements.

What’s New

Major improvements

  • New look for Pages and Posts: A new design for Posts and Pages makes it easier to view and edit your content.
  • A better reading experience: The Reader now displays user-generated content in Merriweather, a crisp, more modern font that’s easier on your eyes.
  • Two-column view for Stats on tablets: Larger tablets now have two columns in Stats, just like when you check them on your desktop.

Bug fixes

  • Incorrect trash post: Before this fix, trashing a post in the post list, caused the post below it to also get trashed when tapped. This is now fixed.
  • Many more!


Do you enjoy keeping up with what’s new in the app, testing stuff, and exploring new UI changes before anyone else? Our testers have access to beta versions with updates shipped directly through Google Play. The beta versions may have new features, new fixes — and possibly new bugs! Testers make it possible for us to improve the overall app experience, and offer us invaluable development feedback. Want to become a tester? Please request access through our Google+ Community.
