ExpressionEngine Bloggers Take Note: Your iPhone (And iPad) App Has Arrived!
Unlike their TextPattern friends who are still waiting to embrace the iVerse, lovers of ExpressionEngine (a premium blog service for “elite bloggers”) can now blog from their iDevices thanks in part to a third party company.
We have just released iExpression for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. iExpression does not require any add-ons other than those shipped with every copy of ExpressionEngine and supports all 1.X and 2.X versions.
iExpression enables posting and post management for multiple sites, but is also the perfect tool for developers to supply to their customers to enable them to easily post to the sites you build for them.
Supporting image uploads (directly from the camera, or from the image library) iExpression uses a simple user interface to enable you and your customers to get their content up on their sites wherever they are. (ExpressionEngine forums).
Created by Red When Excited (who are based in the UK), iExpression allows EE fans to create and edit content on their blogs, as well as upload images to their respective servers.
The company was also able to roll in Twitter support as well, as well as bake in an analytics tool that allows bloggers to view where their traffic is coming from.
iExpression is a universal app which currently supports the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch (for those of you with multiple devices).
There is no word on whether the company will consider an Android app although that may depend upon iExpression’s success in Steve Jobs playground.
Red When Excited is currently selling iExpression for a premium at $10 USD in the app store, and is thus far the only iOS 4 compatible blogging app that supports ExpressionEngine (the other being iBlogger, although it has yet to be iOS 4 tested).
