WordPress mobile usage

WordPress mobile apps have been on a tear. The Android app has passed 100,000 users – and it was released just three and a half months ago. Meanwhile, the Blackberry app is getting close to 100k as well (it just passed 90k users) and the iPhone app will hit 400k users very soon (it was first released almost 2 years ago). The most encouraging trend is the increase in the number of posts published from mobile apps to WordPress sites. In the case of WordPress.com, mobile posts now make up over 10% of total posts published every day, and that number will almost certainly continue to go up.

A big day today for WordPress: The eagerly awaited 2.7 release was officially released this morning and lots of people are downloading it.

Congratulations and huge thanks to the hundreds of people who have contributed to this release. It’s a milestone for WordPress with a new user interface and information architecture, and crucial new features like built-in upgrades and plug-in browsing.
