Update Fixing iOS 8.3 Issue Is Now Available

We are relieved to announce that Apple have finally approved the new version of BlogPad Pro which fixes the critical bug introduced by iOS 8.3.  You can now download the latest update from the App Store.

If you get the chance, please consider leaving us a positive review in the App Store.  During the last 2 weeks our business has been destroyed by Apple releasing a version of iOS with a serious bug and then waiting nearly a fortnight to approve our fix.

Because of this we have received a lot of negative reviews in the App Store.  Unless we can find a way to reverse this and start getting some App Sales this will be the last update we are able to do for BlogPad Pro. We simply can’t afford to carry on supporting and developing an app which isn’t making any money!

Hopefully if we can get some positive reviews this might make it possible to continue supporting the app.

Thank you for your support and patience!

The BlogPad Pro Team

Update: Major iOS 8.3 Bug

iOS 8.3 has a major bug which causes BlogPad Pro to crash as soon as it starts. We found a work-around for this issue almost immediately, but we are still waiting for this new version of BlogPad Pro to be approved by Apple. We appreciate how frustrating this is – we are very frustrated too. We have asked Apple to expedite the approval in the hope that you can get it sooner rather than have to wait a week or so, but we’ve had no response so we are at their mercy.

If you would like a pre-release version of the bug fix (BlogPad Pro version 1.7) please get in touch and we will try to add you to our Beta program. Please note that we only have limited spaces available for beta testers but we will try to accommodate as many people so that you can start using the app again.

Thank you to all the people who have got in touch over the last fortnight and expressed their support at what has been a really difficult time. However, if we are to continue to support and maintain BlogPad Pro, we need your support more than ever before.

Issues Caused By Upgrading To IOS8

Please be aware that upgrading to IOS8 at this stage will cause issues in BlogPad Pro which will result in reduced functionality.

We are currently working on fixes to remedy the problems caused by IOS8 and will issue a new release as soon as possible.

BlogPad Pro app reviews

Amazing! ★★★★★
by spindler – Version 1.2 – Feb 3, 2013
I have found this app to be simply amazing. Very well designed and very easy to use. The support team is also super quick to respond to any questions. I have nothing but positive things to say!
Best WordPress App on the market! ★★★★★
by hayesben40 – Version 1.2 – Feb 3, 2013

I have tried several WordPress apps and this is by far the best! The developer has went to a great details to ensure that the layout of his app is as user friendly as possible. I can easily sit back with my iPad and carryout many functions on my WordPress from the comfort of my iPad. If I could rate this higher than 5 stars I would! I would recommend anyone who has a WordPress site to buy this app! Another thing that is important. The developer is always looking at features that can be added to his app. He is very quick to respond to any questions / queries that I had. This is something that I look at before buying an app. Keep up the good work on this app guys!
Absolutely HANDS DOWN – the BEST WP blogging app ★★★★★
by k8chan – Version 1.2 – Jan 31, 2013
I have tried numerous apps – even the WP free blogging app (which is horrendous, IMHO, and unstable – posts don’t always update/post with THAT app – not this one!,etc.) This app has it all: -ability to work offline -link to multple WP blogs (including my wordpress.com AND a self-hosted WP blog) -easily supports and links with camera photos/uploading is a snap -SUPERIOR SUPPORT STAFF (I cannot say this enough – really!) Not only have I purchased this app for my personal iPad at home, but I am working to use it (if WP will figure out how to let 165 high school students log in/out frequently in the course of one school day) with my class set of iPads (35). Students (even my very non-tech savvy kids) are finding this app *very* easy to navigate and learn from. (Their biggest hurdle is really just blogging lingo like “headline photo” (or something like that). It’s so easy to scale imported images, etc as well. Today my students were able to create their first blog posts and some of them struggle with email – let alone typing on an iPad – it was great fun to have them take pictures of each other, edit/crop off heads (keeping it safe, ya know…lol) and start their writing projects about clothing/etc in Spanish (foreign language classroom). There is SO MUCH to love about this app. I cannot more highly recommend an app and am looking forward to using it to blog more frequently myself when I can catch a breath from my high-learning curved high-tech classroom. While the price point might make your finger hesitate before clicking purchase, trust me when I say this: This app is worth more than any other app. The interface, the ease of use, the offline capabilities (traveling? no problem…crappy wifi connectivity? no worries!), the SUPPORT staff and the seamless writing time. I don’t have to dink around with settings, I can just write. If you want to BLOG and you use WORDPRESS this is the App you are looking forward. You won’t regret it. Thank you for such great product. I’m looking forward to following your developments in the future.
The best ever ★★★★★
by a.a.d6 – Version 1.2 – Jan 17, 2013
I have tried all the blogging apps including the official WordPress app but each one has had some flaw that made it less productive and efficient. This app supersedes them all with features and has none of the flaws. I am so excited to have finally found the perfect blogging app for all my WordPress blogging needs. The latest update and big fixes make this worth a rating update to a five.

Wonderful ★★★★★
by sand625 – Version 1.2 – Jan 15, 2013
In fact its so good its the reason I decided to go with wordpress. Intuitive UI, lots of functions, by far the best blogging app I’ve used. If you have an ipad and a WP site – buy it.

Update even better ★★★★★
by JKingsburyPhoto – Version 1.2 – Jan 15, 2013
Since the latest update, this app has only improved! I’ve been putting it through its paces and haven’t had any issues. It works flawlessly and is the kick I needed to start blogging more.
Developer is Very Responsive ★★★★★
by Abou Nadim – Version 1.2 – Jan 15, 2013
I love the look and feel of this app and had a few suggestions for additional functionality and bug fixes. The developer was friendly, quick to respond and open to my ideas. It is great to find a developer willing to incorporate feedback from their customers! I love the latest update!
Best blogging app ever! ★★★★★
by I<3LDN – Version 1.1 – Dec 28, 2012
Really impressed with this app. Don’t even consider getting the WordPress app. All you need is BlogPad Pro, seriously! Really love it!
Superb ★★★★★
by Goislay – Version 1.1 – Dec 26, 2012
If you are an iPad user, don’t waste time with WordPress app – just get this – its brilliant – easy, helpful and it works – thank you ★★★★★
Fantastic app and support ★★★★★
by Rockz642 – Version 1.1 – Dec 24, 2012
When I first downloaded this app, it wouldn’t connect to my website (nothing to do with the app – faulty code on my site). I contacted support and I got a prompt reply, telling me that the error was on my site and giving me tips to find it. He even gave me the line of code which was breaking the site. After finding the code and deleting it, the app works amazingly. It connected quickly and downloaded all the files. The features are great and it really is worth buying. I haven’t found anything wrong with it at all. In conclusion, great app with amazing, friendly customer support. Just what everybody needs. I’ll definitely be using this from now on and recommend it to anyone.

WYSIWYG Editor Improvements and fixes:

  • Much improvement handling of HTML
  • “Next Page” icon added, to represent where a <!–nextpage–>markers appear in the WYSIWYG editor.
  • JavaScript icon added, to represent where JavaScript blocks appear in the WYSIWYG editor.
  • Formatting of JavaScript code blocks remains unchanged by the editor
  • Visually styled <pre> content when inside the WYSIWYG editor
  • Fixed issue with handling of <pre> tags in content
  • Ensured that <pre> tag is not the last element on the page, so that users can break out of the <pre> tag without having to go into HTML mode.
  • Added “Not yet supported!” alert box to all Media Types that are not yet editable via UI
  • When the device was rotated when in WYSIWYG mode, and with the Post Options drop down showing, the dropdown appears in the wrong place.
  • Disabled HSPACE and VSPACE for WordPress-hosted iframes, as WordPress do not support this
  • Added default image for YouTube search list icon (in case a thumbnail doesn’t get loaded!)
  • Show a movie icon for a movie using an iframe, rather than the iframe one
  • When previewing against Live, make better use of screen space by hiding unwanted elements

BlogPad Pro app for iPad and WordPress blogging

Improved date options for scheduling posts & pages

Other Improvements:

  • When app launched, if only 1 blog exists, that Blog is selected by default, showing the list of Posts for that Blog
  • Some graphics elements improved:
  • Some icons in higher resolutions, to improve clarity on retina displays
  • Flash icon added for Flash items in media library
  • Improved “remove” icon for tags
  • Re-arranged grouping of General Settings – create 3 sections: General App Settings, Blog-related Settings, Media-related Settings
  • Tweaked display of Server messages
  • Tweaked display of App Version messages
  • Improved handling of XMLRPC responses to handle situations when the returned XML was not valid XML (eg due to bugs with WordPress, or due to custom configuration of self-hosted blogs that could affect the XML output).
WordPress iPad app new features

You can now easily copy your image URL to clipboard by tapping the black & white copy icon, so that you can paste it into other applications or across separate blogs

Bugs resolved:

  • When “Restore Default Settings” was clicked in General Settings, this would hide any active Editing windows too by adding the “Getting Started” screen on top of the edit window.
  • If a Blog was deleted from the device whilst a Post from that blog was active in the editor, this would cause errors to appear after every autosave.
  • The app would sometimes crash after editing Post Settings
  • The app would sometimes crash after selecting an image from the Media Library
  • The app would sometimes crash when adding a self-hosted blog
  • When a Post that had been deleted from the WordPress Web Dashboard, and then the Post was updated from Live within the app, that Post would be removed from the device (correctly!), but then would still display a “Summary” of that post (it should not!).
  • When selecting a Featured Image in Post Settings, you were able to see other Media Types in the “From Media Library” section. This should only be images.
  • Fixed bug with version 3.4 or greater Blogs where an update to a Live Post/Page which had been deleted from Live wasn’t handle correctly. Now, the user is asked if they want to delete the Post/Page locally.
  • Fixed issue for iOS5 users where the app would crash if certain views (eg “Media Library -> Other”) were accessed
  • Fixed issue with WordPress-hosted blogs when scheduling a Post that is currently a draft and was initially created using the WordPress Web Dashboard. Before, this would publish the Post immediately.

New features in BlogPad Pro version 1.1

I’m delighted to announce we’ve just launched BlogPad Pro version 1.1 which has some great new features as well as some bug fixes.

You can now browse, search and add YouTube videos straight into your WordPress blog posts as well as being able to add video files from your media library on self-hosted blogs. You can read more about how to do this in our tutorial here.

Add video to your WordPress blog with BlogPad Pro

We’ve also added a few extra options in settings, including being able to set a default size for any new images you insert – which should save you lots of time when creating long blog posts. Just set the default width to the maximum size for your WordPress theme and no more cropped or squashed images! You can see our tutorial on this here.

You can now also insert links to different file types which appear in your media library, including Pdf files, Word documents, Excel, PowerPoint and OpenDocument text documents. Just browse to the item in your library and tap ‘Insert link to file’. You can also add links to video files which aren’t embeddable in a web page such as wmv files.
