Just as we had shared previously about the upcoming release it’s finally here and many of you have already downloaded and updated your apps on your iDevices.
3.6 boasts a crazy-new UI and it’s one that may herald a significant uptick of usage (hopefully) as the overall mobile experience is deemed more appropriate and better by the masses.
Because not only is the design updated, the experience of getting your blog setup and ready to publish is also updated (and better) as well:
Previously, if you’d never before used the app, or if you were new to WordPress in general, the app might not have felt very welcoming when first getting started. With this update we change all that. Now, when you launch the app for the first time we showcase what’s possible.
If you don’t have a site yet, now it’s easier than ever to create a new WordPress.com site straight from the app, and if you already have a WordPress site, just enter your username, password, and site address and you’ll be ready to go. If you have Jetpack installed, you’ll be prompted for your WordPress.com credentials to get access to Stats and notifications.
I booted it up last night and started the process from scratch and although there’s a lot still familiar for me since I’ve been using it I did notice some of the changes right out of the gate.
Here’s a visual overview for those that want to save a few moments of time:
I think the future of much of what we do is mobile and I can’t wait for the continued development moving forward.
Great job team, keep up the great work.
