The official app for WordPress has just been updated with a move to version 4.0. Most importantly, the update reimagines the stats view with a faster and more stable interface. If you don’t like the new design, the old Web view is still available to browse. Thanks to some changes, videos now render properly in the Reader section. A bug in the same section that caused a blue dot display issue was also squashed. Some improvements to the app now prevent a crash when attempting to edit longer posts, which is definitely good news. A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, WordPress can be downloaded now in the App Store for free. The app requires iOS 7 or later. Before the most recent update, version 3.9 arrived in January. That brought an iOS 7 inspired design, an improved log-in screen, and more. With the app, users can manage either a WordPress blog or WordPress.org site running version 3.5 or higher. For other app news and reviews today, see: Arr Matey!
