WordPress for Windows Phone updated to version 1.81, promises major updates for version 1.9

WordPress for Windows Phone has just seen a minor update to version 1.8.1. Its quite rare to get changelogs these days with updates, but fortunately the WP for WP team posted full details on their blog.

The update fixes some important bugs and minor crashes with all 10 crash/bug reports resolved. The update fixes:

  • Fixed crash when the translation files had an empty string in it.
  • Fixed crash when the media library contained a corrupted image on Edit Post Page.
  • Minor layout issue on HTC 8X.
  • Other bugfixes.

The team also promised some significant improvements for the next major release, version 1.9.

On the roadmap is the ability to specify Featured Image, improvements on the Editor Page, as well as a few more nifty improvements.

The team are taking requests on their blog, and on the top of my wish list would be some kind of WYSIWYG editor, which is surely not the most complicated thing in the world. 

Let the team know your request on their page here and find WordPress for Windows Phone here.
