I’ve never been the biggest fan of the WordPress iOS app, but I have noticed that it is making significant improvements in its last few updates. I still don’t like it at all for creating posts in, but it is becoming a useful tool for comments moderation and other similar blog management sort of tasks.
Here’s an App Store link for WordPress; it’s a free app and a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
