WordPress iOS App Update Brings UI Refresh and New Features
Wordpress updated their iOS app with a major UI overhaul, and some useful new features bloggers on the go will appreciate.
The UI features a new sidebar menu for quicker navigation between posts, pages, comments, stats and other functions, not to mention sliding panels on the iPad for an even more seamless experience. The updated UIís new color scheme isnít drop dead gorgeous, but it is functional and allows bloggers to focus on blogging instead of how beautiful the interface is.
