Does This Only Happen to Me?

I’ve written lately about some wonky things happening on the WordPress iOS app. Here, for example. And here, too.

As some of you know, I blog exclusively from my iPhone and I’ve noticed something a bit weird. On the WordPress app for the iPhone, when I’m looking through my Reader, I will see a post notification with a small, cropped image at the top, followed by the post’s title, and then the first few lines of the post. As in the illustration below:18264bf5-be5d-42bc-85d0-39ff3f48287bThere are two ways to view a post in my Reader. One is to tap the post’s title, which displays the post in Reader mode. The other is to tap the “Visit” icon at the bottom left, which will bring up the mobile-enabled view of the post. This shows the Reader view when I tap the post’s title:4e10783f-9a7b-432e-9157-154380e34f37Note the full image at the top of the post. But if, instead, I tap the “Visit” icon, here’s what I see:6a241377-88f2-4f5a-bb13-22a72eb0644dNo image at all! Nowhere in the post! Where did the image go?

Maybe it’s the fact that I’m using an iPhone instead of a laptop. But why, I wonder, does the image show up in the Reader version and not in the mobile version of the post?

I’m sorry if I’m coming across like a bit of a whiner, but I’m curious if the images you see in your Reader don’t always show when you go visit the actual post. Or does this only happen to me?
