Do you blog using your iPad?
During our trip to Isla Mujeres I had the opportunity to catch up on some blogging. For the trip, I left the laptop at home and brought the iPad. I used a number of different apps to facilitate blogging and I think that I have come up with the perfect set of apps for blogging using an iPad.
I’ve used both the WordPress app and Blogsy for blogging, and I think that Posts is the best. The app is elegant and has a look very similar to Reeder, one of my favourite RSS applications. Functionally it has everything you need and in some ways, it is more intuitive and better laid out then both WordPress and Blogsy.
To decrease load times on my site, I like to host my photos on Flickr and embed them in my posts. With no official Flickr app for the iPad, I searched high and low for the perfect Flickr app for the iPad. Flickstackr won hands down. The interface and usability are great, but what I like best is how easy it is to grab the embed code for photos. By clicking on the view in browser option from the menu, you can open up the image on Flickr and quickly grab the code. It would be great if you could grab the embed code from within the app, but the workaround I’ve described is easy and works well.
