Howdy folks, we’re about to start a development cycle on the next version of WordPress for BlackBerry. It’ll mostly be a “refresh” type release to offer a better experience on devices running OS 6 and OS 7. One feature we’re hoping to introduce is the WordPress.com Mobile Reader.
These are the improvements we have planned so far – patches welcome!
- Option/setting for # of comments to download
- Infinite scrolling on posts/pages/comments
- Add Images Alignment options
- Integrate the WordPress.com Reader
- Add the ability to make a post sticky
The full list of items in the 1.6 milestone is available here: http://blackberry.trac.wordpress.org/query?group=status&milestone=1.6
Over the past 2 months 60K unique users has downloaded the app from the RIM AppWorld, not counting those who have downloaded the app from our site. We have an average of one thousand downloads per day, and many are running OS 6 and higher:
- OS 4.5 – 6%
- OS 4.6 – 5%
- OS 4.7 – 1%
- OS 5 – 38%
- OS 6 – 32%
- OS 7 – 18%
