Top 8 | Blogging Apps for iPad

Blogging apps can come in very different shapes and sizes, from those that are designed solely for the creation of your own personal blog, to those that can be very useful in this particular area. There are a whole host of blogging clients out there to pick from these days when it comes to starting a blog, but a few of these have risen to the top and are considered the ones to choose from  and many of these have their own app, so as to bring at least a fraction of desktop functionality to your mobile device. Personally, I’d like to see more blogging apps developed with platforms such as the iPad in mind, or at least Android tablets that have a similar screen size: those that aren’t quite as limited as your typical smartphone, and as such could be used very effectively to manage a blog. We’ll take a look at some of the better blogging clients on this list, as well as a few other apps that can be very useful when it comes to maintaining and indeed promoting your blog, such as Google Analytics which is great for audience insights.

8. Blogger (Free)

Not even that long ago, Blogger was among the most popular among those platforms chosen by users to set up their first blog. This is back when having a blog was the fashionable thing, and there was a lot of emphasis on ease of creation and things like customizable themes, etc. Blogger is now owned by Google, of course, which might cause one to expect improvements and updates but the fact is that the Blogger app hasn’t been updated for quite some time. It still gets the job done, of course, but if you’re looking for a more detailed experience then perhaps check out a third party app that is built to deal with many diffferent blogging accounts including Blogger, such as Blogpress. – Download from iTunes

7. Dropbox (Free)


Dropbox, in my eyes, should be mentioned here alongside Evernote as one of those apps that can come in real handy when you are struggling with your own blog. Both apps are fantastic when it comes to their cross platform capabilities, and work well on the iPad as a result. Dropbox can be particularly useful if you’re one of those bloggers that has a lot of content. If you run a music blog for example and are constantly uploading content for your listeners, then Dropbox can be a good alternative if you’re looking for somewhere to store and stream it from – though, perhaps something like SoundCloud would be better in that particular case. – Download from iTunes

6. Hootsuite (Free)

If you’re the kind of micro blogger that sees social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter as key parts of maintaining a connection between the content you are publishing and the audience that is reading it, then Hootsuite can help a lot. Hootsuite is basially a mobile suite that allows you to manage all of these social accounts, giving you full control over how your content is shared and what kind of feedback you are receiving. You can schedule content to go online whenever you wish, and keep tabs on your audience; those that are new to it and those that are losing interest, so as to better the content you are releasing. – Download from iTunes

5. Tumblr (Free)

As micro blogging websites go, none come with quite as much allure as Tumblr which has fast established itself as the number one name in this area. For those new to the world of blogging, Tumblr is the platform you would go to if you don’t have a lot of written content to contribute but have lots of images or videos to share. And even if you don’t have original content to release to your audience, Tumblr works through reblogs which means you can quickly construct a fantastic little image-heavy blog built solely with graphical content reblogged from other sources. It’s really one of the best sources of artistic inspiration out there these days, besides perhaps Pinterest which works in a similar way. – Download from iTunes
