WordPress for Android 1.3.6* has been released to Android Market which includes some significant improvements to adding media to your blog posts and pages. Here’s what’s new:
Multiple Media Item Sharing
You can now select multiple items in the Android gallery app and share them to a new post in WordPress for Android. Here’s a quick video tutorial on how to do it:
New Attached Media Display
The media that you’ve added to the post is now displayed in a horizontally scrolling gallery view, making it much easier to view the images that you’ve attached to a post or page.
YouTube Upload Fix
Sharing a video from the YouTube application has been fixed. When you share a video to a post from the app it will now be correctly embedded in your blog post for viewing.
More Bug Fixes
There’s many more fixes in this release including:
- Removed ‘read phone state’ permission when installing the app from Android Market.
- Improved performance on the new post and new page views.
- New account form now loads correctly.
We’re not stopping here! Many more great improvements for the app are in the works. Thanks once again to the WordPress and Android community for your support of this app.
*Update November 5th, 2010 – we released version 1.3.7 with some more fixes! Details are in the Android Market ‘Recent Changes’ section for the app.
