For those (un)fortunate enough to part a few hundred “big ones” to own an iPhone, you are probably busy testing out dozens (out of the hundreds) of iPhone apps Apple has released on their iTunes store.
While there are many apps dedicated towards entertaining you via music, gaming or enhancing your life (productivity wise), there seem to be less than a dozen apps dedicated towards blogging–with about half of them being somewhat useful.
So which iPhone app should you use? Depending on what type of Blog platform you are using, your tastes may vary. Over the next ten days, I will be reviewing each iPhone blogging app separately, highlighting their strengths, weaknesses, and bugs.
Here is a brief list of iPhone blogging apps that will be covered (note: more may be added later, depending on how fast Apple approves them).
- WordPress iPhone App (by Automattic)
- Lifecast iPhone App (by SleepyDog)
- CellSpin iPhone App (by Cellspin Soft, Inc.)
- BlogWriter iPhone App (by VirtueSoft.com)
- Typepad iPhone App (by SixApart)
- Tumble iPhone App (by Bitfire Systems, LLC)
In order to help “thin the crowd” of available applications, I will only be reviewing apps that can post both text and images to their respective platforms (as there are too many twitter/flickr imitations to review here).
Note: If anyone is developing a blog app for the iPhone (that is pending approval), please let me know in the comment section below and I will demo the application via Apple’s ad-hock “distribution program.”
