      It would be nice if the Windows Phone version of WordPress received some of the love that the Android and iOS versions have lavished upon them. I’ve left the world of Android to go back to an all Microsoft Ecosystem (Lumia 1520 phone, Surface 2 tablet and Vaio Pro 13 ultrabook) and the only thing I miss as far as working goes is the excellent WordPress app. A version for smaller tablets or larger phones would make my day-to-day occupation of blogging (yes, I do earn a decent crust from blogging) quite a lot simpler. Please consider updating and improving the Windows Phone version of the WordPress client.

      Cheers.

        Thanks for the feedback! Right now development on Windows Phone & Blackberry is on hiatus so that we can focus on the platforms that have the most contribution to them. The idea being we focus on what we can make great then realign the other apps to follow suit.

    WordPress for iOS 4.0 Released! 

    Hey everyone, we just released WordPress for iOS 4.0! This release  focused on implementing Stats natively rather than using a web view. This release also fixed a few bugs including:

    • Worked on an update in the reader that allows videos to render properly.
    • Fixed a bug in the reader that addresses a blue dot display issue.
    • Made improvements to prevent a crash when editing your longer posts.

    For more details you can view the release post here.

    WordPress for Android

    Version 2.7 is nearly finished – a beta will go out today to the Google+ group. WP for Android now includes pull-to-refresh, which fits in really well and looks great too – thanks goes to @mbiais. QA has begun officially.

    WordPress for iOS

    We ended up continuing to test WPiOS 4.0 and submitted it on Friday. At the same time we also started work on 4.0.1 which is a janitorial/cleanup release that will have a code freeze of this Friday. Our testers are still continuing to test 4.0 and if a blocker bug shows up we’ll pull the release and re-submit. 4.0 will feature native stats as the tentpole feature. This week the focus will shift to 4.0.1 where we’ll focus on tackling issues(i’ll clean through the list here shortly).

    Google Summer of Code 2014

    Students can now submit applications for SoC through March 21st. Potential applicants should also check out the Summer of Code page on WordPress.org.

    Weekly dev chat summary for March 10, 2014 

    Agenda

    • WordPress for iOS update
    • WordPress for Android update
    • Google Summer of Code 2014
    • Moving the dev chat time
    • Anything else

    WordPress for iOS

    Last week was spent on QA for the 4.0 release and last minute bug fixes. While native stats are the tentpole feature it’s currently hard for external contributors to test this feature without the release OAuth2 secret. There is an enhancement in the works to properly support developer-created WordPress.com OAuth2 secrets. Submission of release 4.0 to Apple is currently scheduled on Mar 13.

    WordPress for Android

    Last week was spend on development of features for the 2.7 release. The big features for this release are:

    • A rewrite of the post/pages lists to remove antiquated code and also add infinite scrolling.
    • Removing the refresh icons in favor of a new pull-to-refresh feature.
    • A reimagining of notifications is in the works to show as much content as possible in the native UI’s rather than exiting to a mobile web browser.
    • Self-signed SSL certificates are now properly handled within the app.

    Google Summer of Code 2014

    Students can now submit applications for SoC. Potential applicants should also check out the Summer of Code page on WordPress.org.

    Moving the dev chat time

    Daylight savings time began on Mar 9 and offset the dev chat by one hour. We put it to a vote and moved the time back one hour to 16:00 UTC.

    Anything else

    There was a question asked regarding how developers sync up to work on issues outside of the weekly dev chat — the development team is currently very Automattic heavy so we have an ongoing backchat that we use for discussion. “External” contributors mostly use either #WordPress-mobile on Freenode or comment directly on GitHub issues to discuss development.

      Hello,

      First of all, just wanted to say thanks for this great app that I use almost everyday.

      Is there a place to leave comments on what we (users) would like to see on a next release? Fundamentally, I can’t wait you implement a check-box for validating posting over the social networks you support.

      As 99% of my posting are done thanks to the app WordPress, that would definitely be a plus to be able to publicize on Tumblr from my favorite app.

      Thanks and keep up the good job!

    • WordPress for Android – last & this week
    • Google Summer of Code 2014
    • Questions / Discussion

    WordPress for iOS

    Last week we were all working on the 4.0 update, and officially have called “code freeze” as of this past Saturday. There are still a small number of bug fixes (five-ish) that we’re going to get in early this week. Officially we’re on QA/testing duty until the 13th. That’s when we’re planning on submitting the app to Apple for review. This week will be testing and bug fixes for 4.0.

    WordPress for Android

    Last week we released two releases. 2.6.2 had a good number of tweaks and fixes in it. 2.6.3 fixed an issue with connecting over SSL. This week work is continuing on 2.7, which is a blend of niceties, nothing totally new.

    Google Summer of Code 2014

    WordPress.org was accepted as a participating organization in the 2014 Google Summer of Code.  A number of potential project ideas for mobile are listed on the Codex.  Students wishing to throw ideas past the listed mentors for native mobile development are encouraged to talk via Freenode IRC in #wordpress-gsoc or #wordpress-mobile.  Student applications are accepted by Google starting March 10 2014.

    Contributor days handbook page 

    Back in January @isaackeyet and I chatted with @siobhan about what sort of things someone would need to know to get started at a mobile contributor day. Siobhan’s posted her write up to the handbook and everyone should go check it out. :)

    Weekly dev chat summary for Feb 24, 2014 

    Agenda

    • iOS Status
    • Android Status
    • BlackBerry and Windows Phone Repositories
    • Other Platforms
    • This Week

    iOS Status

    The team had a big push on issues in the 4.0 milestone this week with native stats being the tentpole feature. The code freeze for the 4.0 release is still on track for Mar 1st, 2014. There will be 1.5 weeks after the freeze for testing with an estimated release on Mar 12th, 2014.

    Android Status

    There was a 2.6.1 update to fix important issues which was met with favorable feedback. There were some additional fixes that didn’t make it in so a 2.6.2 update is planned by end of this week.

    Note to contributors: The Android group is experimenting with using master rather than develop for work on point releases. x.x.x branches will merge directly in with master and x.x branches will go into develop.

    BlackBerry and Windows Phone Repositories

    @aerych moved the repos for BlackBerry and Windows Phone to GitHub but there are still a couple things to do such as moving some issues and updating links to the apps on the development sites. This was done to keep things in one place. There is nothing currently in place to mirror to the former SVN repos so treat the GitHub repos as primary.

    The new repositories locations are:

    Other Platforms

    All smaller platforms are in a state of ongoing hiatus. Several lesser usage apps were de-listed this past week to permit more focus to the flagship apps (iOS/Android).

    This Week

    The iOS team will continue to push towards 4.0 given that the code freeze is on the 1st. There will be some reorganization of the GitHub issues to move lower priority issues into 4.0.1 and 4.1 milestones.

    The Android team is planning to ship 2.6.2 and then start working full force on 2.7.

    Other Projects: The BlackBerry web site needs updated to point at the new location for the new repository. Tickets for bugs will need to be migrated from Trac to GitHub for both BlackBerry and Windows Phone.

    Next Dev Chat

    The next dev chat will be held at 17:00 UTC on Mar 3rd, 2014 in #wordpress-mobile on Freenode.
