This is an update that I have been waiting for. We here at Androidnerds.et use WordPress and I have been a fan of the official app since I started using it over on our sister site Nerdberry.net, as it is a great tool for doing those quick and important posts while on the go. I was impressed with the Android version of the app from the get-go as the options were much more detailed than those on the BlackBerry app. Well WordPress for Android has updated today to version 1.4 and it includes some nice new features, hit the jump to get all the details.
You can now easily set the publish date and time in the app when creating a post or page. The date can be set to the future which will set the post status to ‘Scheduled’ and publish on your blog when the time arrives. You can also edit existing posts and tweak the published date and time if desired.
At the bottom of the post editor we’ve added a Post Password field to help protect your content. Simply enter a password here and the post will require that the password be entered for viewing on the blog when published. You can also add or remove a password from published posts as well.
HTTP Authentication Support
Is your self-hosted blog protected with an HTTP Authentication username and password? We’ve added support for entering the Authentication credentials in the blog settings so that you can manage your blog through the app. To access the Authentication settings, add a self-hosted blog to the app and select ‘Optional Settings’ in the setup area.
