Making a Splash with Version 2.2

It’s been an exciting few months for WordPress for Windows Phone. Since releasing v. 2.2 in June, users around the world have been enjoying the app’s new features, increased stability, and an overall smoother user experience.

latest features: success!

Blogging on-the-go from your Windows Phone has never been easier. With sleek galleries — either in thumbnail grid or slideshow mode — your images look appealing on screens of all sizes.


Our recently added rich text editor makes it a breeze to write longer posts, where a bit of html code can go a long way toward keeping lists and links in order.

Finally, now that you can get push notifications for new comments, leaving your house no longer means a long queue of comments waiting to be approved. You can keep the conversation going no matter where you are.

a worldwide hit

The release of v. 2.2 received a warm welcome from users around the world.

Now, the Windows Phone Store is joining the chorus of supporters: starting October 13, WordPress for Windows Phone will be promoted as a featured app for all phone models in Canada, the United Kingdom, Belgium, and Switzerland (German and Italian), as well as for selected devices in Argentina, Ireland, and Norway (to name a few). It’s the perfect moment to introduce our app to all your Windows Phone-using friends and family!

  1. I’ve been using the Windows Phone app for a month now and it is very good. It makes responding to comments and checking stats very easy. There are a few bugs but overall I really like it and enjoy using it.

    I would however like to see a tile on the home page for the reader and to have the reader work properly with the back button on the phone so that when entering a post it returns back to the reader, currently it returns to the home page. I’m currently accessing the reader by going into admin, then clicking the wordpress logo in the top left corner and choosing reader from the drop down. A bit fiddly at the moment as the admin page is quite small font but it works reasonably well on the Nokia 925’s large high res screen. It is just the back button issue that really causes me any real issue.

    I would love to see more development on the windows phone app, especially as it is now a fast growing OS over here in the UK. My whole family have migrated from iPhone/Android devices to Nokia windows phones over the last month and many of my work colleagues are looking to switch at the end of their current iPhone contracts.
