WordPress For BlackBerry Updated To v0.9.0.157

While we all were anxiously awaiting the new BlackBerry Messenger release yesterday, the good folks at Automattic were busy releasing an update as well. This update bumps their Wordpress for BlackBerry application up to version 0.9.157 and addresses a lot of users concerns. Being that the application is still considered to be a beta, Wordpress users should be pleased with the progress. New feature set includes:

Updated UI Changes:

  • Gravatar support
  • Ability to open the URL of the author into the BB browser
  • A reply to comment feature, so you can moderate and respond all from the mobile device.

On the Post and Page screens

  • The ability to open the comment list for a specific post
  • Support for the post excerpt field
  • Support for custom fields


  • Added French support
  • Added Italian support 

Users who already have the application can update from within the app, and for those of you who may have a Wordpress powered blog and are not using this Wordpress for BlackBerry - why not?
