WPWindowsPhone app upgrades

Version 2.0 has been approved! We are working on the launch post, but the app is already available to users. We are moving on to version 2.1 which will support comment push notifications!

WPAndroid UI progress

It’s looking really good. Most activities have been converted to the ActionBar, and the MenuDrawer has been tweaked to operate smoothly. Still a bit more left to do, including getting design comps and implementing them.


Version 3.5 came out last week with a nasty bug, but thankfully we were able to get a bug fix out quickly. There’s a few less annoying bugs reported that should probably be fixed for a 3.5.2 release. No progress on version 3.6 yet.

Handbook progress

Handbook is looking better. We noted that there is still a lot of non-app specific content to be written, maybe some folks can jump in and write those.


After 3 weeks in review, the app was rejected for an unknown reason 🙁 We are reaching out to our BB contact to see what’s up.

Next week

The next dev chat will be on March 6, 2013 at 16:00 UTC. Mark your calendar and join us in #wordpress-mobile on Freenode.
