WordPress for iOS, the official iDevice client of the world’s most popular blogging platform, has received another update.

The new update, which pushed the app to version 3.4, is all about notifications.

To be sure, notifications have long been present in WordPress for iOS. But they’ve been enabled for new comments only. Until now, that is.

Thanks to the app’s latest update, notifications have been implemented across the app’s various functions.

Starting with the latest version of WordPress for iOS, you can count on push notifications to inform you of everything happening on your blog. What’s more, you get to know about new notifications instantly regardless of where you are in the app.


And through the app’s new comprehensive notifications view, you can do the following with just a few taps:

  • read comment threads and reply
  • moderate new pending comments
  • get stats highlights
  • see your new followers and follow them back
  • see who liked your posts

In case you don’t want to be inundated with so many notifications (what with your blog being so popular and all), you can turn off any notification type in the Settings panel. In addition, you can mute notifications altogether for any of your blogs.

Note that notifications about likes, reblogs, follows, and stats highlights are exclusive to WordPress.com blogs only. Notifications about everything else are also available for self-hosted WordPress.org blogs, provided they’re duly equipped with the Jetpack plugin.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of WordPress for iOS is available now in the App Store for free.
