We’ve just published version 1.3.9 of WordPress for Android to the Android Market. The release includes some handy new features as well as some important bug fixes:
We’ve seen some great support from volunteer developers in the community. A big thanks to contributor Christof Dorner, who added support for QuickPress shortcuts on the Android home screen. Just long press on the home screen, select ‘Shortcuts->QuickPress’ and then select the blog that you would like to use. You will then have an icon on your home screen that takes you directly to the new post screen to start blogging straight away!
Share Post URL to Other Apps
You can now share a link to posts you’ve published on your blog to other Android apps. Just tap the post title and then ‘Share URL’, and then select the app you want to share the link to.
This release contains the following bug fixes:
- Use EXTRA_SUBJECT when adding shared content to a post
- Incorrect comment date if moderating from a different time zone than the WP blog’s set time zone
- Spanish translation updates
