Version 3.4 Keeps You In the Loop: Introducing Notifications

Posted on 4 Feb 13 by Robert Collins

wpios-3-4-notificationsNeed to get your WordPress.com notifications on the go? With version 3.4 of WordPress for iOS you’ll see all your WordPress.com and Jetpack blog Notifications right on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.

Notifications

With the new streamlined Notifications view, you can step away from your computer but still stay connected to your readers. With just a few taps you can:

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

Don’t need so many notifications? You can turn off specific notification types (for example “Likes”) in the Settings panel. You can also mute entire blogs if it gets too noisy.

Self-hosted WordPress.org blogs get to join the party, too! Simply connect your blog using the Jetpack plugin and your self-hosted blog’s notifications will appear. Already have Jetpack set up? Then you don’t need to do a thing.

Additional Improvements and Bug Fixes

We were also able to patch up some bugs with this release. Users with multisite self-hosted blogs can now correctly view stats for sites they belong to (ticket #1528). A particularly nasty bug which resulted in the possibility of losing your offline drafts has also been fixed (ticket# 1545). A big thank you to everyone reporting issues, it’s been very helpful in finding these quirks and resolving them once and for all.

What’s Next?

There are many great updates coming for WordPress for iOS. We’re currently working on an update to the post preview screen and better revision control. This should make for a much smoother posting experience.

A huge thanks to the contributors that worked on this release: beaucollins, daniloercoli, koke, aerych, mrroundhill, isaackeyet, sendhil, and Frank Klein.

    This is very useful! For an active girl like me, mobile notification really helps me a lot. As I cannot always bring a bulky laptop with me, this is very very convenient. Thank you!
