WordPress is moving closer to a WordPress for Blackberry 1.0 App.

Recently I wrote about WordPress 2 – the WP iPhone App.  Which is a great app that allows you to create new content from your iPhone, including media such as videos and photos.

Now, I’m excited to see the development moving forward for Blackberry owners.  The WordPress for Blackberry app is moving closer to a 1.0 release, with today’s beta version 0.9.0.169 update available.

If you have a Blackberry, you can go here to download it:  http://blackberry.wordpress.org/install

If you are currently using the WordPress for Blackberry app, the next time you open it, you should be prompted to upgrade.

New Features on the 1.0 WordPress for Blackberry App

  • Based on all the great feedback, we reworked much of the UI layout for the main view, blog view, and media view
  • Ability to upload videos from your media library
  • New option to set media file properties (filename, caption, title, and position)
  • Created a new file browser that resembles the native BlackBerry file browser
  • Big improvements in the speed at which you can view and manage comments
  • Lots of optimizations for uploading photos and videos using base64 encoding
  • Indonesian language support updated thanks to Kate of Pixel Insert
  • Improved French language support thanks to Yann Nave of blog.onbebop.net
