Hey everyone. I’ve posted here before but I don’t think I ever properly introduced myself. My name is Chris Boyd, and I’m a brand new Mobile Wrangler with Automattic. I’ll be working on WordPress for iOS with the rest of the team, helping to make it a killer blogging app.
We’re very close to releasing 2.5, which will include support for iOS 4 and addresses some long-standing issues including cut-and-paste on the iPad. We’ve also got a nifty new setup flow for WordPress.com users: If you’re creating a new blog the process has been simplified, and if you’ve got existing WordPress.com blogs we’ve made adding all of them a breeze.
What we’d like to hear from you moving forward is what you’d like to see in the short term from the app. What do you think it needs most for the next release? We know several people have mentioned video and stats, so we’ll definitely be working hard to get those out. But what else? What haven’t we covered yet? If you could have one feature included in the next month, what would you want it to be?
Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned for the upcoming 2.5 release!
