Today Apple approved Wiki Edit version 1.7 for distribution world-wide in the App Store.

New Features

Upload Support:

  • Upload images from your photo library and camera roll
  • New “Upload” option in Wiki menu

Edit Recovery:

  • Network failures no longer result in lost edits.
  • Tapping “Cancel” while saving or previewing will return to the editing screen with your changes intact.  Helps recover from stalled or dropped connections and unresponsive servers.

Bug Fixes:

  • iOS 5.x support added
  • iPad 3rd gen support added
  • Better memory management using ARC
  • Fixed missing activity spinners on load/save/preview operations
  • Fixed missing HTTP: from some Wikipedia pages and forms

Special Note:

Some Wikipedia sites now use an “Upload Wizard” which does not work on iPad.  Try using the upload option from the Wiki Edit menu instead.  That will by-pass the wizard and upload directly using the MediaWiki upload page.  You may need to go in and add Wikipedia specific file ownership information after the upload.

I’d like to thank everyone for their comments and suggestions on earlier versions of Wiki Edit. Please keep them coming.
