WordPress for BlackBerry Updated to Version 1.3


It seems WordPress for BlackBerry has been updated to version 1.3, but the update is only visible in App World. If you go to the desktop version, it still shows version 1.2.1 and the official Automattic, Inc blog hasn’t posted about the update yet. It’s hard to say what’s new in this update because there isn’t any information available, but we know that the WordPress for BlackBerry Beta 1.3 included the following:

  • Improvements on the Stats feature for WordPress.com blogs and self-hosted that are using the WordPress.com stats plugin added.
  • Add the possibility to load more comments
  • Add the possibility to load comments by status (all/spam/pendings)
  • Add the possibility to set the default video-size for VideoPress users
  • Add the formatting toolbar and WordCount features to the post/page write screen
  • Add In app bug reporting and feedback
  • Improvement on the photo resizing opt, a better jpeg encoder is now used

The WordPress app for BlackBerry is at version 1.0 and is now available for download in App World. This app was in public beta for some time, and is now available free in App World.

Features include:

  • Reworked UI layout for the main view, blog view, and media view.
  • Ability to upload videos from your media library.
  • New option to set media file properties (filename, caption, title, and position).
  • Created a new file browser that resembles the native BlackBerry file browser.

  • Lots of optimizations for uploading photos and videos using base64 encoding.

Open Source WordPress application for BlackBerry now in Public Beta


The WordPress BlackBerry client has finally launched in public beta. The app is Open Source, as per the guiding ideology of the WordPress organization, and has been long awaited by micro-bloggers everywhere.

The app is a collaboration with the fine folks at Danais, who lead the MoPress Open Source project.

Here are some things to consider while taking a tour of this new BlackBerry app:

* The app is for WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress version 2.5.1 or newer
* This app should work with any of the new BlackBerry devices such as the 8700, Pearl, Curve, Bold, and Storm
* BlackBerry OS requirements are OS 4.2.1 or newer

Being a public beta, it’s important to realize the large amount of potential bugs that can occur, before writing this app off as not what you want. If you’re not interested in trying a pre-release version of this software, you should wait until 1.0 is out.

To install the beta application: Point your BlackBerry browser to http://blackberry.wordpress.org/install and follow the instructions.

We’ll keep you posted about updates on this application.

If you find bugs: Review the How To Report a Bug documentation and submit tickets over on blackberry.trac.wordpress.org.

For developers out there wanting to get involved, you can browse the source code and check out a copy of the app via SVN.
