Automattic rolled out a new update yesterday for their Android app yesterday, and it looks like the app will finally be useful for mobile blogging.

In addition to now being listed in the Nook App Store and the Amazon Appstore, the updated app also got a number of bug fixes as well as a new viewing option. Bloggers can now use the app to view the regular blog Dashboard. This is intended to be seen on  desktop browser, not  mobile device, but it is still useful even in cramped conditions.

The standard Dashboard offers info that the app does not. For example, the app won’t tell you which posts just got which comment. This of course makes it hard to continue a conversation in the comments of  blog post, so I’m glad that I can now access the Dashboard.

The app is available in the Amazon Appstore and Nook Store.
