Back in the good old days (and even today), blogging was predominantly a notebook/laptop phenomena. For a lot of text, the notebook is the device preferred for creation. But then, with services like Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest etc. coming up from all sides, blogging has shifted from a predominantly text-only process to a lot of media.
Reblogs, re-pins and a lot of similar phrases are testimony to the fact that people can now blog from their iPhones and iPads. In fact, longer blogposts are being typed on iPad too.
There are tons of popular blogging platforms but not everyone uses all the new class of blogging platforms. In fact, WordPress and Blogger are still two very commonly used platforms with Tumblr climbing the ladder rapidly in recent times.
Here are some of the best blogging apps for iPhone and iPad:
WordPress needs no introduction. It’s a complete blogging platform that comes with every little feature you’d expect (and more). WordPress for iPhone and iPad has been updated consistently to make it versatile, powerful and as much feature-rich as the web version.
Tumblr – although not as versatile as WordPress or Blogger – is one of my favorite blogging platforms on the web. Having used the service for several years now, I can say that it’s one of the most simplest and easiest platform to start blogging on. The community around Tumblr blogs is also quite wonderful.
Blogger was one of the first blogging platforms to become highly popular. At the start of Web 2.0, it was the leading social platform too – right from Google. Blogger has its own dedicated iPhone app that can help bloggers on the Blogspot platform post images, text, video and more to their blogs.
Not many know about Typepad but it’s one of the most streamlined and powerful blogging services we’ve encountered in the recent past. Typepad makes blogging ultra-simple and features some exceptional specs that add to the blog’s value. Seth Godin’s on Typepad so you know how powerful that is!
Blogsy is a $4.99 app on the App Store and it’s for a reason. What if you plan to manage several blogs on several platforms right from your iPad? What if you’re a problogger looking to manage blogs even when you’re on the move? That’s where Blogsy comes into the picture letting you play around, control and post, manage and do a variety of stuff with a lot of blogs under various platforms.
