WordPress for iOS version 2.6 is now available in the App Store. The new version introduces several much-requested new features to the popular blogging app for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Chief among the enhancements is vastly improved video support. You can now shoot and post video from your iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 directly to your WordPress blog.

The update also includes better support for Local Drafts, to prevent posts from going missing. And to give your unpublished blog posts even more protection, the WordPress iOS app now autosaves your posts as you create them, just like the Web version does.

WordPress says that the update also includes a slew of other bug fixes and enhancements. The app is free and requires iOS 3.0.2 or later.
