TypePad iPhone App: What’s Up With All The Hate?

Hate! Loathe! Whine! Spit!

That’s the first impression I received after browsing through the reviews of Six Apart’s iPhone App on iTunes.

While many were upset that a TypePad account would cost them 495 pennies a month, others seemed upset that this app would not work on Movable Type (or even Vox) despite the obvious indication that this is a TypePad only app. read more

For those of you who have no idea what Tumblr is, you can think of it as a cross between Twitter and a blog.

Not to long ago, Bitfire Systems created a native iPhone app that allowed Tumblr users to post text, images, and links for their friends to see. read more

What I Love And Hate About The WordPress iPhone App

Whether you are a “Movable Type maniac” or a BlogSpot fan (note: this author is), you have to admit that WordPress has done an impressive job in building, maintaining, and supporting both WordPress.com and WordPress.org.

After discovering a few weeks ago that WordPress had launched an iPhone app, I decided to download the program and give it a spin, to see if the app was pure hype or “purely awesome.”

iPhone Blogging Apps: The Good, The Bad, And The Buggy

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. read more

PodPress Update in 10 Days

PodPress is probably the most used podcasting plugin for WordPress, and the one we’ve been using here at The Blog Herald. However, there have been issues with it since WordPress 2.5, and it doesn’t work with recently released 2.6. Among others that are frustrated are David Peralty, who’s written about the issue.

Luckily, the PodPress developer says that we can expect a 2.6 compatible release within 10 days.

I wonder when WordPress will get native podcasting support, similar to the PodPress plugin? It is about time, I’d say.
