WordPress for Android Beta 2.1 Released, Autosave Timer Plus Ability to Edit Comments Added

Attention, online writing machines. There is a brand new WordPress beta application for you all to download and play with. Included in the new beta are features that they are asking people to test out and send feedback on, so be sure to try them.

  • Autosave timer while editing posts. Every 60 seconds the post will be autosaved.
  • Edit comments! You can edit comments while on the go now.
  • You can now set the width for linked images.
  • All new WordPress.com reader. Navigating posts is much faster and you can add comments to posts that you are reading. You can also share the post to other Android apps!
  • Small improvements to the UI, most notably that the delete post button has been moved to a less prominent spot to prevent accidental taps on it.
  • Reliability improvements
  • Translation updates

You can download the new beta app right here, and let us know what you think. So far, it seems to run one heck of a lot smoother than it did previously, so we won’t argue with that.

    Forgive me if I’m going off subject, but how do you make the bottom soft keys a different color (and/or add the search/menu keys)?

    These two screenshots completely reminded me to ask.

    Thinking of dumping Posterous for WordPress now. Which is funny because I left the latter for the former a while back

    I’m going to point this out…the device that screenshot is from is out of battery, has a weak cell signal and poor wifi connection. Just saying .lol

      Pretty much standard for a galaxy nexus!  

      I keed, I keed.

      I just launched a WP site.  Although I haven’t got as far as using the app just yet, it was one of my main reasons for choosing WP as the CMS.  Great to see they are continuing to improve things.  

  • This is awesome. I don’t know why I don’t hear more people raving about this app. It is ridiculously well made and functional. If you have a WordPress site and ever need to live blog something while being out and about there are really no comparisons.
