WordPress for iOS 4.0.1 Released

WordPress for iOS 4.0.1 is out and now available to download from the App Store.

Some of the updates included are:

  • Improved the performance of stats.
  • Made the “Options” page easier to locate and access.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the app to freeze when you tried to update a post’s settings.
  • Fixed a bug that stopped you from moving the cursor to the end of a line.
  • Fixed a bug that broke the UI when you inserted a link in the post editor.
  • Fixed a bug that crashed the app when you added a featured image to a post.
  • Increased the minimum required version of WordPress to 3.6.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the post editor to malfunction if you inserted a link.

What’s Next?

We’re hard at work on the next major version of the app (4.1), where we’re working through your feedback to make big improvements to working with media. The post editor is getting better media management features, including the ability to easily attach media that’s already been uploaded to your blog. For a sneak peek, take a look  here.

A huge thanks to our contributors who worked on this release: @itsaboutcode, @koke, @astralbodies, @aerych, @sendhil.

  1. Another issue about photos added in a post and published through iOS devices: It seems the photos will be listed as “unattached” to any posts, and when I apply the [gallery] code to the content it then casuses the images to be hidden! It used to work fine in previous releases, how come this time it doesn’t work?

  2. Could you try logging out of your blog, re-logging back in, upload a photo and let me know if the problem still persists?

  3. Rats … 4.0.1 no longer allows me to schedule posts on the future.

    ALL new posts are Immediate.


    I used that feature a lot.

  4. 4.0.1 scrolling is glitchy. While editing a long post in portrait mode, rapid scrolling to the top (or bottom?) causes as reset back to the bottom (or top). Like a “Ground Hog Day” for scrolling (keeps repeating at the same place).

  5. Beta testers …

    How do I apply to become one?

    I seem to turning over all the stones with “treasures” hidden under them.

  6. Oof – we’re sorry about that. I was able to reproduce that just now. We’ll fix that immediately and get out a hot fix asap.

  7. Hi cb – could you go into more detail? What do you mena that rapid scrolling to the top “causes as reset back to the bottom”?

  8. I seem to be unable to login using the app with my iPad. It tells me I have the correct username and password (I even logged in through my computer and created a new account to try which doesn’t work either!) Not sure what to do, I can log in using Safari and going to the site but the app will not allow me to even login.


  9. http or https?

    The iOS app post editor 4.0.1 forces all occurrences of http or https to https

    Is this by design or defect?

  10. This is a bit of a flaw that’s causing some of the problems people are having when they preview posts in the app right now or view the site. As far as the beta test stuff, I got your email and will respond soon.

  11. Hi there,
    I cannot get my wordpress app to work properly. I am subscribed to two blogs and only two posts will open from “one” of the blogs on my iphone 5. If I try to scroll down, its just blank. I have the most recent of the wordpress app (4.0.1), ive tried restarting my phone several times. So, I know something is seriously wrong with the app. Also, when I try to put in my username/password/ web address for the second blog I subscribe to, it just flashes on my screen and takes me back to my homepage….Help???!?!??!

  12. Hi Sarah,

    Is your blog on WordPress.com or is it on a self hosted blog? If it’s on WordPress.com do you have two factor authentication setup?

  13. HI there – sorry about that. Could you do us a favor? Would you mind removing the app, re-installing it, logging into both and then letting me know if the problem still persists?

  14. I attempted to update wordpress tonight, received fatal error messages. I had just posted a new entry which did not post to my media avenues and the site is not working at all now. Message given internal server error.

  15. Sorry to hear that. Could you try uninstalling the app, re-installing it and letting us know if the problem persists?

  16. Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a
    few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not
    sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and
    both show the same outcome.
