WP app for iOS - limited pictures and spaces

    Running version 3.5.3 of the WP app because it's the easiest way to get lots of text and images into my blog - but forced to edit via the web interface because of two glitches.

    Double-spaces after periods. I recognize the rest of the word has moved on to single spacing after a sentence ends, but aesthetically I find the double-space more pleasing and easier to read. So I hit the space bar three times on my iPad - twice for the period-and-space shortcut, and a third time for that extra space. But. Every time I save the draft and upload to my server, that second space disappears. I waste loads of time going through the web interface just to fix this. Is there a setting or something I can change?

    Next, the photo uploader. I've read other problems with moving the photos around in the text (no WYSIWYG view, so must cut and paste the HTML code). That's not as easy as it could be, but manageable. However, I can't adjust alignment or edit any fields (title, alt text, caption, link) in the app. Seems to me these are basic functions if you're adding pictures to a posting. Yes, I've managed to edit some of these fields through hackng at the HTML - but I'm a writer not a coder, and it's slow going.

    Again, hoping I've missed some simple switch that will fix it all. Any help is greatly appreciated!

  2. Double-spaces: from what I know HTML ignores double spacing, so the visual editor on wp-admin has to come up with some tricks to make them visible. See http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/19936 for some more insight

    Photo uploader: that's a known issue, and media management in general is lacking. We haven't finished planning our next releases yet, but improving media is definitely on the list
