Hello WordPress users! Version 5.2 of the WordPress for Android app is now available in the Google Play Store.
In version 5.2, you may notice a difference in font in the app: we replaced the Open Sans font in the UI with Roboto, the default Android font. For those with a sharp eye, you also might notice that we’re still using the Merriweather font for user-generated content, like reader comments and the content in your post editor. (For the typographically curious, take a look at the WordPress.com Design Handbook.)
Version 5.2 also comes with an updated Account Settings screen. You can change your email address, primary site, and web address in your app:
- Email address: This is your primary email address associated with your account, which is not publicly displayed. If you update your email address, you will receive an email to confirm it.
- Primary site: Your primary site is typically the one you most commonly use. You can update your primary site from a popover display with a list of all of your sites.
- Web address: This is the URL that is shown publicly when you comment on blogs.
We also dropped the “auto-share” and “post signature” settings from this screen.
We’re working hard on new features for the next versions, and you can track development progress for the next version by visiting our 5.3 milestone on GitHub.
