WordPress for Android adds post scheduling
Following nearly three months of development, the WordPress development team has released version 1.4.0 of its WordPress for Android app. Using the mobile application, users can easily post to, and edit, their WordPress blogs from an Android mobile device.
Source: WordPress.org New features include support for post scheduling, allowing users to set the publish time and date for their posts directly in the app, and the addition of a Post Password field that lets users protect their content – these posts require a password to view them once published. Passwords can also be added or removed from published posts. Other changes include support for HTTP Authentication, a 'Today' option in stats and various bug fixes. The latest version now also securely stores user passwords in the local database.

WordPress for Android 1.4.0 is available to download via the Android Market and supports both WordPress.com and self-hosted blogs, requiring WordPress 2.7 or later. Existing users can update to version 1.4.0 via the Android Market's built-in update feature.
Like WordPress, WordPress for Android 1.4.0 is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL). Users interested in contributing to the application are encouraged to do so via the WordPress for Android project developer portal.
