A nice update for those you out there making use of WordPress as your blogging platform of choice. The latest release of WordPress for BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry PlayBook has now landed and while it remains and Android port, it adds plenty of welcomed changes to the mix including an updated UI. Realistically, it's the same update the Android version received not all that long ago minus some Holo love and well, that's not a bad thing as it shows WordPress is maintaining releases across the board.

  • Action bar updated for easy action to common actions.
  • Use the menu drawer to quickly navigate to other areas of the app. Just tap the arrow in the action bar or swipe to reveal the menu.
  • Use the 'view site' feature to view and share content on your site.
  • Wordpress.com users can view the web dashboard (wp-admin).
  • The Wordpress.com reader now takes advantage of caching for faster loading.
I really do love the fact that WordPress is continuing to support BlackBerry but for the life of me, I can't understand why they don't just build a native app. It would be such an improved experience if they just went all in. In any case, the update is live in BlackBerry World right now and can be picked up by clicking the link below.
