While I am still waiting for a native WordPress app for the PlayBook the Android port is working well. The Automattic team announce on their BlackBerry blog that v2.1 of WordPress for PlayBook has been rolled into App World. This version brings loads of improvements including:
- Comment editing: tap the new ‘Edit’ button when viewing a comment and you will be taken to a new screen where you can edit the comment information including the name, email, URL, comment text, and status.
- Post Autosave: to better protect your content, the app will now autosave posts you are editing every 60 seconds.
- New Scaled Image Setting: you can now set the width of linked images. Tap ‘Settings’ and then tap the ‘Upload and link to scaled image’ checkbox.
- Small improvements to the UI, most notably the delete post button has been moved to a less prominent spot to prevent accidental taps.
- Reliability improvements.
- Updated translations.
- New app icon.
- New WordPress.com Reader: There’s an all-new reader in the app that makes it easier than ever to follow your favorite blogs on WordPress.com. We’ve added a bunch of great new features including simplified navigation between posts and the ability to comment on articles you like.
