WordPress for iOS adds Push Notifications

Automattic has released an update to its official WordPress app for iOS adding Push Notifications for WordPress.com blogs and a new moderation toolbar for comments. With the latest update users who host their blogs on WordPress.com can now opt to receive push notifications of new comments on their blog posts.

A new Swipe-to-moderate feature has also been added in the comments list allowing users to bring up a moderation toolbar by swiping over any item. The update also vastly improves performance, particularly for iPad users and adds language support for Chinese (Taiwan), Hungarian and Polish.

WordPress 3.0 is a universal app requiring iOS 4.0 or later and is available from the App Store as a free download.
