Call for Testing: WordPress for iOS 7.3

The WordPress for iOS 7.3 beta will be available for testing on TestFlight soon. Not part of the beta program yet? Please sign up for our TestFlight program to request to join as a beta tester.

What to Test

1. Publicize Improvements

If you tried the Publicize feature that came out in version 7.1 you’ll want to take a look at these improvements:

  • Fix a broken publicize connection from the editor’s post options.
  • Switch back to the default publicize message (post title & URL) by deleting the custom message.
  • Tap the whole line (not just the toggle) to toggle a connection on or off.

To test:

  1. In your site’s Sharing section, connect to at least one sharing service.
  2. Bonus: Break the publicize connection (for example, by deactivating the social media account you connected — you might want to use a test social media account for this!).
  3. Create a new post.
  4. Open the post options.
  5. If you broke your publicize connection in step 2, tap the error symbol to fix the connection.
  6. Set a custom publicize message.
  7. Remove the custom publicize message.
  8. Tap anywhere on an individual sharing connection to enable/disable it.
  9. Publish the post and confirm the default publicize message (your post’s title and URL) was used.

Feedback:

  • Did the three improvements work as expected? Please report anything that didn’t work or other parts of the Publicize feature that you still have trouble with.
  • Flow Challenge: Were you able to fix a broken publicize connection and return to your task smoothly? What happens if you change your mind in the middle of the process? Please report any point where you get stuck or can’t find your way back to the post you’re working on.

(Related Github pull requests: Reconnect a broken connection, Switch back to default message, Toggle behavior.)

2. Recent Sites

You can now find your most recently used sites at the top of your site list (under My Sites > Switch Site), if you have more than 11 sites in the app.

 

Feedback:

  • If you have 11 sites or fewer, does the recent sites section appear? (It shouldn’t appear unless you have more than 11 sites.)
  • If you have more than 11 sites, do your recent sites appear in the order you most recently used them in the app?

(Related Github pull request.)

3. WordPress.com Site Icons in My Sites

Site icons for public WordPress.com sites will now appear in the site list and the site details on the My Sites tab. (Previously, only a site icon placeholder appeared there.)

To test:

  1. Add a site icon to a WordPress.com site (from the site’s general settings or customizer).
  2. In the app, open the My Sites tab.
    1. Check your site list and confirm the site icon appears next to the site in the list.
    2. Open the site details and confirm the site icon appears next to the site title/URL at the top of the screen.

Feedback:

  • Please report any issues with the site icon not appearing next to a public WordPress.com site, either in the site list or on the site’s details (dashboard) screen.
  • Bonus: Try removing the site icon as well as adding it, and confirm the app updates the site icon in both cases.

(Related Github pull request.)

4. Sharing to WhatsApp and Telegram

You can now share posts to WhatsApp and Telegram, using the sharing buttons on the post:

  1. Install and set up WhatsApp and Telegram on your device.
  2. Open the Reader in the WordPress app.
  3. Find a post that has the WhatsApp and/or Telegram sharing buttons enabled.
  4. Tap on “Visit” under the post in the Reader list view.
  5. Scroll down to the sharing buttons under the post.
  6. Tap on the WhatsApp and/or Telegram buttons to share the post.

Feedback:

  • Please report any errors or unexpected results when you share the post to WhatsApp or Telegram.
  • Testing Challenge: Can you find the other ways to share a post from the Reader? Test those out and confirm sharing works as expected in each place.

(Related Github pull request.)

Call for Testing: WordPress for iOS 7.1

The WordPress for iOS 7.1 beta will be available for testing on TestFlight soon. Not part of the beta program yet? Please sign up for our TestFlight program to request to join as a beta tester.

What to Test

1. Publicize (Sharing) Support for Posts

You can now manage your sharing connections for individual posts, to control where each post is shared when you publish it. Try it out:

  1. In your site’s Sharing section, connect to at least one sharing service.
  2. Create a new post.
  3. Open the post options.
  4. Set a custom publicize message.
  5. Enable/disable individual sharing connections.
  6. Publish the post.

Voilà! Your post will be publicized to the selected social media accounts, using your custom message.

Feedback:

  • Things to check: Did all of your connected accounts appear in the post options? Did your custom message show up on the publicized post? Was the post publicized to your selected connections (and only the ones you selected)?
  • Flow Challenge: Did the publicize settings make sense in the sequence of steps you took to create your post? Did you ever have to disrupt your publishing process to manage those settings, or did you experience any confusion or frustration along the way?

(Related Github pull request.)

2. Noto Font Update

The Merriweather font has been replaced with the Noto font in the app, to provide better support for non-Latin scripts.

Here’s how it looked before, with Merriweather:

And after, with Noto:

Feedback:

  • Please use the app in your language of choice. Let us know if you notice any overall issues with the font, or specific issues in your language (such as characters not appearing or displaying incorrectly).

(Related Github pull request.)

3. iPad Layout for Notifications

Notifications now have a splitview (sidebar) layout on iPads, similar to the rest of the app. iPhone users should not see any difference in the Notifications layout.

Feedback:

  • Please navigate through your Notifications, interact with them, and report any quirks or bugs in the new layout or behavior.
  • Testing Challenge: Try to catch the Notifications with unexpected layout behavior, especially while rotating the device or multitasking on your iPad.
  • Flow Challenge: Does the new sidebar make the best use of your iPad’s screen? Are there actions in the Notifications that don’t use the layout as expected, or places where you now get stuck?

(Related Github pull request.)

Call for Testing: WordPress for iOS 7.0

The WordPress for iOS 7.0 beta will be available for testing on TestFlight soon. Not part of the beta program yet? Please sign up for our TestFlight program to request to join as a beta tester.

What to Test

1. Navigation Arrows for Notifications

You can use arrows (in the top right corner) to navigate through your in-app notifications without returning to the notifications list. (This is designed to match how you can navigate through your notifications on the web.)

Feedback:

  • Check your notifications in the app. Use the arrows to navigate to older or newer notifications. Do the arrows work? Are they disabled when you reach the end of your notifications?
  • Flow Challenge: How do the arrows feel for navigating through your notifications? Were you surprised or confused by anything? Did the navigation feel natural and expected?

(Related Github pull request.)

2. Add Excerpts to Post Editor

You can now add and edit post excerpts directly from the app:

  1. Create a new post.
  2. Open the post options.
  3. Scroll down to the excerpts (bottom of the options screen).
  4. Tap and enter an excerpt.
  5. View the post and confirm the excerpt is being used (e.g. in the Reader list view, in subscribers’ email notifications, or on your site if your theme uses excerpts).

Feedback:

  • Try adding excerpts to new posts, editing excerpts on existing posts, and creating/editing posts without excerpts.
  • Testing Challenge: Compare the app’s excerpts feature with the same feature in the web editor. Do the app and web excerpt features work in the same way? Do your excerpts stay intact when moving between the app and the web?
  • Flow Challenge: Did you encounter any confusion or obstacles adding an excerpt to your post? Does the excerpt act as expected throughout the rest of the app (for example, in your posts list or in the Reader)?

(Related Github pull request.)

3. Better Support for RTL Languages

The app got a facelift for right-to-left (RTL) languages, with an improved layout throughout the app. Check out the pull request for a series of before/after screenshots showing the changes, and try it out:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Go to General > Language & Region > iPhone Language and select an RTL language (e.g. Hebrew).
  3. Open the WordPress app. (Bonus: Log in to a WordPress.com account with the same interface language.)
  4. Navigate through the app and look for any layout issues, e.g. incorrect padding or alignment.

Feedback:

  • Do you speak an RTL language? Please let us know if we missed any layout issues or created new ones!
  • Testing Challenge: Log out and check the login/signup screens. Do they work as expected for the allowed input? Do the error screens look right?

(Related Github pull request.)

Call for Testing: WordPress for iOS 6.9

The WordPress for iOS 6.9 beta will be available for testing on TestFlight soon. Not part of the beta program yet? Please sign up for our TestFlight program to request to join as a beta tester.

What to Test

1. New “Post-Post” Screen

After you publish a post (“post-post”) you’ll now see a screen confirming the post was published (and where it was published), with calls to action:

  • Share the post
  • Edit the post
  • View the post

Feedback:

  • Try publishing a post in different ways (creating the new post in different ways, or publishing the post from a different status) and confirm the post-post screen appears as expected.
  • Testing Challenge: Try to find a scenario where the post-post screen appears when it shouldn’t, or where the calls to action do not work as expected.
  • Flow Challenge: How does the post-post screen make you feel? Are you able to move on to your next action in the app smoothly, or do you get stuck anywhere?

(Related Github pull request.)

2. iPad Layout in the Reader

The Reader now has a splitview (sidebar) layout on iPads, similar to the My Sites and Me tabs. iPhone users should not see any difference in the Reader layout.

Feedback:

  • Please navigate through the Reader, use each section, and report any layout quirks or bugs.
  • Testing Challenge: Try to catch the Reader with unexpected layout behavior, especially while rotating the device or using Reader actions (e.g. sharing, viewing the post/site).
  • Flow Challenge: Does the new sidebar make the best use of your iPad’s screen? Are there actions in the Reader that still don’t use the layout as expected, or places where you now get stuck?

(Related Github pull request.)

3. Refreshed Reader Comments UI

The Reader comments styles were updated to more closely match the web:

Feedback:

  • Please make sure the comments appear correctly (with up to 4 levels of nesting), with the full contents of each comment, and that comment actions work as expected.
  • Testing Challenge: Try to find a piece of content or comment thread that doesn’t show up correctly (a missing emoji? a photo or video that doesn’t load? a problem when rotating your device or loading comments from a particular source?).
  • Flow Challenge: Can you open and read comments starting from different points in the app? Are there any accessibility or usability problems with the new layout?

(Related Github pull request.)

Call for Testing: WordPress for Android 6.5

WordPress for Android version 6.5-rc-1 has been released in the Google Play Store. You can join the beta from the Google Play Store on your device (under “Become a beta tester”), and comment here or join the Google Plus beta community for more discussion with other testers. (Note: If you see a message that the beta testing program is full, you’ll need to wait for space to open up before you can join the beta. Thanks for your interest!)

What to Test:

New: New oEmbed Support

The app now supports more oEmbeds, including:

  • Kickstarter
  • Reddit
  • Twitter Moments
  • Facebook News

To Test:

  1. Create a new post with some text.
  2. Copy a link from one of the sources above.
  3. Paste the link on a new line in the post.
  4. Publish the post.
  5. The source content should automatically embed in your post.

Note: We’re currently investigating an issue where the embed is sometimes not created if the link is added to the first line of the post. For now, adding at least one line of text before the link (as in the screenshot below) will avoid this known issue.

Feedback:

  • Does your content embed as expected? If not, what is the link you tried to embed and/or the a link to the post where the embed didn’t work?
  • How did you feel while publishing the post?
  • Bonus: Try getting the source link using a variety of methods: copying the URL from a browser’s address bar, sharing from an app, using a “Share” button in a browser, etc. Do all of those links embed as expected?

(Related Github issue and pull request.)

New: Recent Sites in the Site Picker

If you have more than 15 sites, the site picker now shows your four most recent sites at the top of the list. The recent sites section only appears if at least 15 sites are unhidden (showing in the site list), and doesn’t appear in search mode.

 

To Test:

  1. Make sure you have at least 15 sites showing in the site picker (the site list that appears when you select “Switch Site” under your site in the app).
  2. If needed, use the 3-dot menu in the top right to unhide sites so that at least 15 appear, or use the + sign to create new sites.
  3. Select a site from the list.
  4. Select “Switch Site” to go back to the list. Your last selection should appear at the top of the list.
  5. Repeat with several other sites, and confirm that the most recent sites appear at the top of the list as expected.

Feedback:

  • Did the list of recent sites work as expected? Did it show up anywhere unexpected, or not show up when you were expecting it?
  • Describe how it felt to have your most recent sites at the top of the list. Did it help you find the site you were looking for when switching sites?
  • Please report any issues with the list of recent sites.

(Related Github issue and pull request.)

Bugs & Feedback

Did you find a bug or come up with a feature request while testing? Did you try the additional flow testing? You can discuss it here, report it using the “Enter feedback about the app” form in the Google Play Store, or head straight to the Android Github repository and open a new issue.

Thank you for testing!

Call for Testing: WordPress for Android 6.4

WordPress for Android version 6.4-rc-1 has been released in the Google Play Store. You can join the beta from the Google Play Store on your device (under “Become a beta tester”), and comment here or join the Google Plus beta community for more discussion with other testers. (Note: If you see a message that the beta testing program is full, you’ll need to wait for space to open up before you can join the beta. Thanks for your interest!)

What to Test:

Updated: Refreshed Reader Design

Reader streams (the list view, such as “Followed Sites” or tags you follow) got a design refresh to match the current WordPress.com Reader design. A couple big changes to note:

  • There are now five different layouts for posts in the list view. Here are the rules:
    • If the post has 0 images: Text card.
    • If the post has 1 or more images and less than 100 characters: Photo card (using featured image or first image).
    • If the post has 1-3 images and over 100 characters: Default card (using featured image or first image).
    • If the post has 4 or more images and over 100 characters: Gallery card (using first 4 images).
    • If the post has a video as featured image or a video as first usable media: Video card.
  • Tag streams now have a an image header.

Feedback:

  • Does each post layout work on your device, for example in your Followed Sites list?
  • Do you notice any design issues while scrolling, rotating your device, or navigating through the Reader?
  • Look at a tag you follow: Does the image header load correctly? Can you tap to view the post the image came from?

(Related Github issue and pull request.)

New: Draft Reminder Notification

The app now sends you push notifications when you have a local draft that is more than 3 days old. (Local drafts are drafts saved locally on your device and not synced with your site’s server.) There are a few cases:

  • For a draft 3-30 days old, the notification includes the post title and age of the draft.
  • For a draft >30 days old, the notification includes the post title (but not the age).
  • If you have multiple drafts, the notification includes the number of drafts (but not the title/age).

These cases work independently on each site, so as you switch between sites in the app the notifications will adjust to the site you’re working on.

To Test:

  • Write a new draft and exit the editor to save the draft locally. (You’ll see the text “Local draft” in yellow on your draft in the list of posts.)
  • Go to your device settings and set the date to more than 3 days in the future.
  • Open the app again.
  • The notification should appear on your device.
  • Tap “Edit” to open a single draft in the editor or the post list for multiple drafts. Tap “Ignore” to dismiss the notification (it won’t appear again for that draft). Swipe to dismiss the notification, and receive the notification again later (after 24 hours).
  • Repeat these steps for different sites with different numbers/ages of local drafts.

Note: If you don’t have any local drafts on your site to begin with, the notification may not appear (Github issue). This is a known issue with this first beta release and is resolved for the next release.

Feedback:

  • Was the notification clear and compelling to you? What was your reaction to it?
  • Describe what you intended to do after seeing the notification. Were you able to complete the actions/flow you intended, or did you get stuck anywhere?
  • Please report any issues with the notification itself (the number of drafts, the age of the drafts, the timing of the notification, etc.).

(Related Github issue and pull request.)

Bugs & Feedback

Did you find a bug or come up with a feature request while testing? Did you try the additional flow testing? You can discuss it here, report it using the “Enter feedback about the app” form in the Google Play Store, or head straight to the Android Github repository and open a new issue.

  • Did anything confusing or unexpected happen while checking your notifications?

(Related Github issue and pull request.)

Updated: Styles on the login screen

The app’s login screen has new styles to differentiate between the login forms for WordPress.com and self-hosted sites. To see the difference, log out of the app (or install the app fresh on your device):

  • By default, you will see the WordPress.com login form with the WordPress.com logo and “WordPress.com” stated above the login form.
  • Tap “Add self-hosted site” at the bottom of the screen to switch to the login form for self-hosted sites. This screen now displays the WordPress.org logo with a grey background.
  • Tap “Log In to WordPress.com” to return to the WordPress.com login form.

The new styles:

Feedback:

  • How do the new styles look to you? What feelings do they evoke (for example: surprise, confusion, satisfaction)?

Call for Testing: WordPress for iOS 6.8

The WordPress for iOS 6.8 beta will be available for testing on TestFlight soon. Not part of the beta program yet? Please sign up for our TestFlight program to request to join as a beta tester.

What to Test

1. New Actions in the Editor Menu

The editor’s options menu (the ellipsis menu) now has more actions:

  • If you create a new post with the status set to Publish, you will see a “Save as Draft” option.
  • If the post is set to Draft and you have permission to publish posts, you will see a “Publish Now” option.
  • If the post is set to Draft and you do not have permission to publish posts, you will see a “Submit for Review” option.

Previously, you had to open the post options and manually update the post status before taking these actions.

Editor Menu Before:

Editor Menu After:

Feedback:

  • Try out the above scenarios and make sure the post’s status is changed as expected.
  • Testing Challenge: Try to find a scenario that hasn’t been covered above, and see if an unexpected action appears in the options menu.
  • Flow Challenge: How does the flow feel while writing, saving, and publishing a post? Any surprises or obstacles? Anything that felt really smooth, or evoked confusion or anxiety?

(Related Github pull request.)

2. Reader Style & Layout Updates

The styles and layout for each post in the Reader post streams were updated to match the current Calypso (web) Reader. Actions to test:

  • Look at the Reader in both portrait and landscape.
  • Follow a site, share a post, view a post in the browser, tap a tag to view that tag stream.
  • Check that site Blavatars appear as expected.

New Reader Style/Layout:

Feedback:

  • Did any styles or layout look or act broken in the Reader?
  • Testing Challenge: Look at the Calypso (web) Reader carefully and compare it to the app Reader; do you see any significant or noticeable differences?
  • Flow Challenge: How does it feel to read and interact with the Reader with these new styles and layout? Does anything feel especially smooth/improved or cause confusion or anxiety?

(Related Github pull request.)

3. Updated Reader Text Rendering

The Reader formerly relied on a third-party library to display the text on the full post screen. We’ve replaced that library with one of our own design.

  • Look at the full post screen in the Reader in both portrait and landscape orientation.
  • Check that the layout is correct.
  • Check that text can be selected and copied.
  • Test hyperlinks and play embedded video.

There should be almost no noticeable change in the full post screen’s appearance between the old library and the new.

Feedback:

  • Did any styles or layout look or act broken in the Reader’s full post screen?

(Related Github pull request.)

(Related Github issue and pull request.)

New: Open WordPress.com URLs in the App

Opening a WordPress.com post URL will now prompt you to open that post in the WordPress Reader (in the app). This works even if you are not logged in to the app, giving you access to a logged-out Reader view.

Note: This currently works only for sites with a *.wordpress.com URL.

  1. From another app, open a link to a post on a site hosted on WordPress.com (with a *.wordpress.com URL, not a custom domain name). Try a variety of apps, such as browsers, chat apps, social media, etc.
  2. A picker will appear asking where you want to open the link. Select “WordPress Reader” from the list, and choose “Just Once” or “Always.”
  3. The app will open and the post will appear in the Reader.
  4. If the link is to the comments on the post, the Reader will open the comments view directly.

Feedback:
