WordPress Redesigns Mobile App

I’m writing this post in the updated WordPress mobile app. The editor has received a nice facelift including the ability to edit image settings without leaving the editor screen. There’s now an image icon on the editing toolbar that takes you right to the Photos app to select the image you want to import. At the top of the editing screen you’ll find the Settings and Preview icons which also make it much easier to access the tools needed to write, publish and manage your content.

Once you’ve inserted an image, tap on it and a pencil icon appears as an overlay on the image. Tap the icon to display the image’s settings. Add titles, captions and alt text, then set your appearance choices. Tap close and you are right back in the editor screen ready to keep typing.

These updates have turned the app into a truly functional editor – and one I’ll be using a lot more often.

WordPress Mobile for iOS is free in the app store.
