WordPress for iOS Gets Rich Text Editing

WordPress has updated their iOS app with the ability to easily write posts using rich text editing. The app now has built-in buttons for things like bolding font, creating lists and bullet points, or creating a link. In addition to the capability to type posts more easily, they have also added a full screen editing mode so that posts can be typed faster¬†with less distractions.¬†While it’s not as beautiful as iA Writer or Elements, it does perform well for a free blogging app. However, when compared to something robust such as Blogsy, it definitely doesn’t come close to competing. This is the only iPhone WordPress app at the moment though, so it’s a must for those bloggers who need to format quickly without needing to type HTML code.

In additional changes, stats and referrer links can be opened inside the app and Quick Photo now uses the post format for images (providing that your theme supports it).

If you’re a WordPress blogger and don’t already own the app for your iPhone or iPad, I recommend downloading it to easily post on-the-go for free.
