We reported last month
that WordPress was working on update v1.6 for BlackBerry. Now, WordPress is allowing users to join in the public beta and download v1.6! This new version has a revisited UI and some great new features that trumps the previous v1.5. Let us know how this version works for you, and don't forget to leave some feedback!
If you are using OS 7.1 you may get a "907 invalid COD" error if trying to download via OTA. To fix this, you may need to copy the jad and all cod files to your memory card, and then open jad from there in order to install. Thanks to Greg @alwaysaterrier
for figuring this out.
Here are also a few words from the developer on what to look for in this beta release:
Some things to test:
- Are all of your blogs still in the app if you upgraded?
- Try to post a quick photo.
- If you have a WordPress.com blog in the app, try out the new Read function. Change filters, like some posts, view Freshly Pressed, and more.
- Try the new File Picker, is it fast? Responsive? (It now sort files by last-modification date.)
- The Posts/Pages/Comments lists now have infinite loading. Check to make sure it keeps loading your content.
- Is the new Dashboard rendered like it should? See example.
