WordPress has updated its iOS app to version 3.7 to provide readers with a improved browsing experience. The app’s new Reader is deigned to enhance the user experience by being rebuilt from the ground up with 100% native code, an improvement from the original Reader’s blend of JavaScript and native code.

Account management has also been improved, although it may take some users a while to notice as the improvements are entirely under-the-hood. Visually the app looks the same, but WordPress owners Automattic have improved how the app connects to the various services used to manage WP sites. The iOS app now does a better job of connecting to Jetpack, the online Reader, and notification features.

In addition to these improvements and the usual bug fixes version 3.7 changes how the View Admin feature works, now opening a page in Safari instead of inside the app. Finally, the update is rounded out with the addition of Thai language support. WordPress is already working on the iOS 7 version of the app, and has launched a new blog for fans to follow the progress of their mobile development.

You can find version 3.7 of the WordPress app now in the iTunes store.
