The Android application for WordPress received a new update yesterday bringing its software to version number 2.3. One the first things you’ll see is a revamped user interface which brings Holo styling to the app. In addition, the folks at WordPress added an Action bar which gives you easy access to your most used actions, and a Menu Drawer to help you navigate the app with ease. Here is the version updates:


What’s in this version:
It’s the big UI update!

  • Action Bar added for easy access to common actions.
  • Use the Menu Drawer to quickly navigate to other areas of the app. Just tap the arrow in the Action Bar or swipe to reveal the menu.
  • Holo style used throughout the app.

There are new features, too!

  • Use the ‘View Site’ feature to view and share content on your site.
  • users can now view the web dashboard (wp-admin).
  • The Reader now takes advantage of caching for faster loading.
