WordPress for iPhone and iPad gets better interface, becomes far more useful

WordPress for iPhone and iPad has received an update that is sure to make bloggers happy. Now it includes a sidebar for quick navigation, support for Post Formats, a new WordPress.com Friend Finder, landscape support, access to your Dashboard, and more.

The new sidebar allows quick access to all your WordPress blogs including Posts, Pages, Comments, Stats, and even your Dashboard. Viewing your Dashboard is through an in-app browser, so it's not the greatest experience, but it's convenient to have it available for those time that the in-app features aren't quite enough.

In addition to all the new features of WordPress, it has also received an entirely new look. The colors and graphics have all been updated and look great.

I've been a longtime WordPress user and am so far impressed with this update. In the past, I used the WordPress iPhone and iPad as a way to get content up on the go, but never really enjoyed the experience. Now, if I am relaxing on the couch with my iPhone and iPad, I may just use one of my iOS devices even though my laptop and desktop are easily accessible.

Anyone given the newly updated WordPress app a whirl yet? If so, how are you liking it? How useful is it to your blogging?

Definitely digging the update. This, plus the very quick support for the MBP Retina display in the backend when it initially came out, as well as the recent Retina update for newly uploaded images, has me a very happy camper with Wordpress!

Works good for me on both the iPad and iPhone. The new look and UI is a definite step in the right direction.
