Wordpress for iPhone

Our first priority is to fix all the bugs, and once the app is stable and bug-free start looking at adding new features. Here are a few notes about the bug fixes, source code, getting involved, roadmap, and when to expect an update.

We’ve identified two bugs which are now being fixed:

1. Certain multi-byte characters (ex: Æ, Ø, Å ) cause the app to crash and make it impossible to add a blog
2. The way the app creates theme previews is interfering with a plugin which causes a one-time blank post to be published to Twitter and possibly to 3rd party RSS services

Source Code
The source code is now available via SVN. You can browse at or point your SVN client to the latest trunk The 1.0 release is what’s in the Apple iTunes store right now,, and “trunk” will be where you’ll find the latest development build. If you’ve never heard of SVN, a good place to start is on

Getting involved
Lots of you have contacted us wanting to get involved in this project. The best way to is go through trac and participate in defining new features, identifying and squashing bugs, and contributing code. The login system uses the registration. Make sure to download the free SDK so you can run the latest build in the iPhone simulator.
