The latest version of the official WordPress app for Android devices is now available.
WordPress for Android 4.9 comes with many new features, the most noteworthy among them being the fingerprint scanner.
So far, the WordPress app offered a pin lock feature for users, that allowed you to lock the app and gain access only after entering the correct pin. This feature has been really crucial, simply because the WordPress app can access virtually all you connected websites, and in case of malicious usage, the results can be disastrous.
The fingerprint scanner is now an alternative to the pin lock feature, meant to serve as a more secure and much faster method of authentication.
The Media Library in the app too has been revised, with a new layout and design, as well as support for handling multiple photo and video uploads. Other than that, WordPress for Android 4.9 also addresses several bugs and other updates.
You can learn more about the latest version of the WordPress for Android app on the official blog post. Also, you can download the app from the Play Store.
