If you 1) Publish a WordPress blog and 2) Have an iPhone you probably have the official WordPress app for that device. If you do you’ll be interested in the features of the latest upgrade to that app, an upgrade that comes with a contribution from one of Voce’s newest Platforms team hires, Jeff Stieler. From Jeff’s post on the details:

One of the many perks at Voce is the opportunity to contribute back to open source software.

In some rare free moments, I was able to add HTTP authentication to the WordPress iPhone app, which had been on the ‘future enhancements’ list for quite some time.

I’m really quite elated that I now have code in the App Store, and that I could help such an awesome OSS community.

Feel free to view the patch submission, and mention on the WordPress iPhone blog.

It’s these sorts of chops that make the Voce Connect Platforms team one of the leading WordPress developers in the nation, chops that include iPhone app development.
