WordPress Android 4.9-rc-1 released in the beta channel

Hi Testers, WordPress for Android version 4.9-rc-1 has been released in the Google Play Store.

This version brings a finger print scanning option on the PIN lock for compatible devices with Android 6.0. We’ve made some changes in the Media Library, better handling of multiple uploads and a redesigned detail screen. We fixed a few bugs, particularly an issue with the AUthor role, another with trashing posts that was permanently deleting them.

We’re planning to release final 4.9 version on January 11th.

WordPress Android 4.8-rc-1 released in the beta channel

Hi there!

4.8-rc-1 has been released in the Google Play Store.

We worked on a new theme picker for your WordPress.com sites. You can browse, search, preview and customize your theme from the app. We also added support for full backups. If you’re using the app on a Android 6.+ device, you won’t have to login again. All your data are backep up and automatically restored on install, that means if you uninstall the app or buy a new device, your data (credentials, local drafts, preferences) will be restored when you install WordPress.

We also fixed a few bugs: a Geolocation issue when updating a published post, loading private images in comments now works, published notifications are now dismissed on tap or on share.

You must join our beta community on Google Plus to get the beta updates: https://plus.google.com/communities/108813167297661427043

Hi makers A new beta release has been…

Hi makers!

A new beta release has been published to the Google Play Store beta channel: version 4.6-rc-1. What’s new?

A notification will now appear when a Post has been published, let you quickly share the link. We also reintroduced link shortening when sharing from the post preview (and from the notification).

We changed a few things in the app to optimize how it starts and how it keeps stuff in memory. Starting from 4.6-rc-1, switching between main tabs and starting the app should be noticeably faster. We also changed the app icon to a circle icon (material design compliant).

Let us know if you have any comment about the new features, or if you encountered any new bugs. We’re planning to release final 4.6 version on October 16th.
