WordPress for Android: Version 5.3

Hello WordPress users! Version 5.3 of the WordPress for Android app is now available in the Google Play Store.

Account Settings and App Settings

We split the old Account Settings into two distinct screens: Account Settings for everything related to your account, and App Settings for everything specific to the App, like the interface language, PIN lock, and Analytics opt-out.


Delete WordPress.com site

With 5.3, you can now export your content (posts, pages, and settings) by email and delete your WordPress.com site from the app.


Other Changes

Version 5.3 also comes with a few other enhancements:

  • New styling of the action bar in the Reader.
  • If you made changes to a post, you’ll see a confirmation blink on Blog Posts when returning to the My site screen.
  • Better styling of the Post and Page Preview screen.
  • An updated support tool reduces crashes.

We’re working hard on new features for the next version — you can track our development progress for the next release by visiting our 5.4 milestone on GitHub.
