WordPress iPhone App incorrect username or password

I have just installed the WordPress iPhone application onto my phone but I was unable to login to this blog even though I knew I were using the correct credentials (there's nothing worse than been told you have the wrong username and password when you know you have not).

At first I thought maybe it was a problem with my domain redirection as I changed my blogs domain a few months ago so I entered the old blog address which popped up an error about XML-RPC could not be found. I'm not sure why this wasn't been displayed for the devblog.com.au domain but this put me onto my solution.

You simply have to enable XML-RPC in the WordPress admin panel under Settings > Writing.

Enable the WordPress, Movable Type, MetaWeblog and Blogger XML-RPC publishing protocols.
