For those of you who own a Windows Phone 7 device, you might want to know that the WordPress for Windows Phone 7 app version 1.2 is now available and can be downloaded via the Windows Phone Marketplace.
New features on WordPress for Windows Phone 7 version 1.2:
- Landscape Editing – the post editor is now available in landscape mode, providing a larger/wider keyboard and allows users to easily type posts. New changes also make it easier for users to navigate in the post editor view.
- UI (User Interface) Improvements – the improved panorama view UI now has more space to view blog content – posts, pages and comments. Another addition is a better loading indicator so users won’t have to wait for a network task to finish before they can proceed to a different section of the panorama view UI.
