Mobile Team Update – October 9th

WordPress iOS and Android version 11.0 will be released for beta testing tomorrow. Sign up here to join the beta program on iOS or follow this link on your Android device, tap on Become a beta tester.

Highlights for the last two weeks:

  • iOS: The XCode10/Swift 4.2 migration was completed.
  • iOS: The tyranny of the blank page is no more! We’ve added suggestions for next steps to every page without content.
  • iOS: When you write a new post, the app automatically saves drafts on your device, so none of your work is ever lost.
  • Android: We’ve restyled a few more screens to keep improving consistency across the app.
  • Mobile Gutenberg: We upgraded to the latest React Native version (getting us closer to Gutenberg web’s setup). We are moving forward with the bottom fixed formatting toolbar and the writing flow (new blocks on “Return” key).
