An updated version of WordPress’ universal iPhone/iPad app just hit the App Store and includes fast app switching support for iOS 4 multitasking and is optimized for the iPhone 4’s retina display. Since the app works on the iPad, it does not require iOS 4 to run.

According to WordPress’ iOS blog the update also includes:

  • Cut-and-paste now behaves as expected on the iPad.
  • Better handling of drafts in progress when quitting the app.
  • Several performance enhancements, UI improvements, and bug fixes.

As we’ve mentioned before, we find blogging to be a bit difficult on the iPad (and with the iPhone, it’s mostly to check comments, etc), but hopefully the platforms (both WordPress and iOS) will continue moving towards a more PC-capable experience and we can ditch our keyboards. On the top of the list for sure, is adding and working with images.

It’s available now for download/update.
