The App Store has provided me with tons of great apps for the iPad, but I’ve never found one that allowed me to blog from my favorite device. The three leading blogging apps for iOS are lame, lacking in features, and virtually unusable to publish articles from. A good, solid blogging app for the iPad has been right at the top of my wish list since Day 1 of owning an iPad.
Over the last few days I’ve been lucky enough to be getting to know (beta testing a pre-release) blogging app for the iPad, called Blogsy. And … I’m impressed. It already feels far nicer to use than any other blog editor app I’ve tried on the iPad or iPhone.
Here are just a few cool things Blogsy does better than other blogging apps:
- Let’s you add a ‘Read More’ break easily
- Makes it easy to insert an image from Flickr or from a web page in its internal browser – and to adjust the size, position, and alignment of the image
- Allows you to format text as bold, italic, strikethrough, bulleted and more.
Oh, and lets me add multiple images to a post and place them where I want.
Blogsy has some flaws and some things that are missing, but as a not even 1.0 version yet, it already looks better than the competition. And boy does that make me happy.
