WordPress for iOS 2.9 Makes iPhone & iPad a Full Featured Blog Creation Platform

WordPress released a major update for their iOS blogging app. I took it for a spin on an iPad 2. You can see the blog post result in the screenshot above. As you can see the updated app includes a fully rendered preview feature.

New in Version 2.9: Full Screen Editing and Text Formatting

The updated app adds the following new features and enhancements.

Feature-Rich Content Editor. Easily format text, make bulleted lists, create links and do all kinds of other fancy stuff.
Full Screen Editing. View more text at a time while you post on the go.
Reading Made Easy. Keeping track of your favorite blogs. Browse all the latest posts on blogs you follow in one place, right from your iPhone or iPad.
– Quick Photo will now use the post format for images (if your theme supports it).
– Post pictures that you’ve already taken with Quick Photo.
– Stats referrer links and comment links can now be opened right from this app.

The WordPress for iOS app is reaching the point where some people should be able to deal with nearly all of their blog writing work using only an iPhone or iPad.
