Comment (by hedgefield):

 Great iteration! I noticed some things when looking at it in detail:

 - The example post in the device has very little text and two big images,
 which makes it hard to see at a glance that it is an article.

 - I find the images breaking out of the device very confusing. It breaks
 the silhouette and doesn't seem to have a clear intent. What's the thought
 behind that?

 - The copy about which versions of WordPress the app supports is pretty
 prominent and high up on the page. Especially on mobile it appears above
 the screenshot and the features, while in my mind this is more of a
 footnote, a quick notice to let people know they need a reasonably up-to-
 date install. I've only used the app to manage WP.com hosted blogs before
 so I didn't even know you could use it for standalone sites too. I feel
 that sentence would only confuse people this early in the pitch. Probably
 a better place is below the features.

 - Perhaps Need Help also needs some kind of image, or the desktop layout
 of Contribute could use a tweak, as I feel like there is a lot happening
 in the layout, with the left-aligned features, the center-aligned email
 input, the right-aligned contribute copy, and then one more section with
 no image that's left-aligned again. But this is more of a feeling and not
 a hard suggestion.

 - Perhaps my strange feeling about the Need Help section is also because
 it is the only section that has a divider. The other sections are all
 divided by blocks of color.

 - Make the slack channel shoutout a link to the WP slack signup page?

 - The color of the icons could well be darker (if not just black), the
 current tint of grey doesn't really appear anywhere else and feels a bit
