Your phone has one time zone setting. Your website uses a different one. What are your site stats based on? Did that traffic spike happen this morning, or this afternoon? Answer: your stats are now based on the time zone settings of your website.
Consistent color schemes with good contrast make an accessible, intuitive app, which makes happy users. Version 13.0.1 is more consistent; enjoy the happiness.
The block editor keeps getting better and better. Not possible, you say? Pshaw, let us count the ways: it’s automatically enabled the first time you start a block-based post* and you can enable and disable it on a per-site basis, so every user gets the editor experience they want. Adding blocks from the post title shows an “add block here” indicator, to simplify content creation, and adding new blocks de-selects the post title so the focus is on the new block.
* Unless you opted out in version 12.9! We’re not monsters.
Ratings and Reviews
I have two WP blogs and use the app for them, they are connected to the same address. I visit them often. I have one WP blog with a different address. I visited that frequently by logging in and out on the iPad with my other email and password. Quirky, but not a problem. The last couple of days, I am unable to access the blog that is not connected to the app with the iPad. The app insists I need to make a new account. Which would be silly. It’s like having 3 skirts. Two are everyday and kept in drawers. The other is in a dresser that now appears to be locked and I’m asked to get a closet! It’s seriously crimping my fashion sense! Will this be the norm and will I only be able to update the third blog via laptop? 😳🤔🤔😳 I hope I can still use the laptop! I’d better check. (Asking WP help is inefficient, my question keeps crashing!)
Lacking features from the full site
I use this app for work because I'm frequently on the go and away from a computer, and for whatever reason accessing the site from iOS Safari makes it impossible to save anything into the body text form.
While this app is a lifesaver and easy to use for the most part, I'm continually frustrated by how many features from the main site are missing. For instance, there doesn't seem to be any way to assign authorship to a blog post in the app, and nor does there seem to be any way to edit metadata in the media library. I can live with the fact that embedded social media cards and iframes don't display properly in the text form while writing, but it would be nice if posting a raw url in the app's text form automatically converted it into an html embed.
Another problem with the app is that it seems to have caching issues. Tons of drafts that have already been published stay visible in drafts, and keep accumulating the longer I use the app without deleting it. I hope solutions to these things are in the pipeline.
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for your feedback. I've forwarded it onto our team and we'll keep track of demand for the features you mentioned. For the caching issues: manually dragging the posts screen down with your fingers should force the app to refresh. If that's not the case, we'd be happy to chat further about this problem. You can email us at email@example.com or navigate to Me > Help & Support > Contact Us within the app.
Just another social media site
I’m making this brief (short memo, pun intended because it is a writing app) because if I had been asked to write a review 3 months ago I would have given it 3 stars. However, upon closing out and deleting my account over a week ago, now I’m receiving spam from one of their 3rd party partners or at least I hope it’s spam, otherwise, the alternative is Wordpress has a security breach and my data has been compromised. In case you are wondering, TrustPilot sent me an email to the email address in Wordpress’ possession thanking me for a recent purchase (good luck with the payment as the debit card used was prepaid and now has $0 value) and asking me to review Wordpress’ based on a ‘free’ gift they were mailing me. How could I receive a gift since I have deleted the account and if I hadn’t deleted the account why did it take 3 months before I was told of the free gift but if there an honest to god free gift, ever, then why is Wordpress partnering with a party just to solicit a response by offering a made up item. You can’t really trust any of these social media sites.
