We have some rather interesting news now for those of you that currently use the WordPress application on your iOS devices, as we’ve just heard that the app has recently received a major revamp. Not only has the update fixed a variety of bugs, but it’s also added a couple of new features.

In fact, according to Ben Parr over at mashable.com, version 2.8 has fixed a total of 31 different bugs including errors that caused seventy-five percent of all application crashes. The issues with external keyboards and adding categories on the Apple iPad have also been fixed.

Users will also notice that the revamped WordPress application now features a Stats section and a Quick Photo button. The Quick Photo button feature – which is currently only available for the iPhone – enables users to take a photograph, quickly write a post around it and then publish it.

Meanwhile, the Stats feature provides users with a quick way to view daily, weekly and monthly page views, as well as information such as post views and top referrers. This feature is available for all WordPress.com blogs, but self-hosted blogs will need either the Stats plugin or Jetpack to activate it.

The revamped app has also added support for 10 languages including Dutch, Croatian, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Japanese and Italian. Do you currently use the WordPress app on your iPhone or iPad?
