Tom Witkin’s Poster app has just been updated with a number of significant improvements.

Contrary to what you might surmise from its name, Poster is not an app that helps you create posters. Rather, it’s a blog editor, i.e., a blog poster, dedicated to WordPress, the world’s most popular blogging platform.

Launched just last month, Poster is compatible with and optimized for iPad. And I bet that a considerable number of users who have tried the app can attest to its elegance. If you ask me, it’s a far more elegant blogging solution than the multi-platform Blogsy and even the official WordPress iOS app itself.

Fortunately, Poster has good functionality to go with its undeniable elegance. In fact, this functionality has been improved further through the app’s latest update.

Several important features have been introduced in the new version of Poster.

For one thing, uploading images is now supported in Poster. This new feature comes complete with provisions for image title, alternate text, alignment, width, height, and aspect ratio retention.

For another, editing post slugs is now included in Poster. This lets you specify a more or less descriptive URL for each of your posts.

The new version of the app also adds a monospaced font option called Inconsolata and a URL scheme for interoperability with other apps.

The newly updated Poster is available in the App Store for $3.99.
