Blogging on an iPad


Without going into too much detail about such a traumatic situation, my much loved laptop went sayonara and, now, and iPad is my primary 'work device' of choice. First off, kids and technology these days, and, second, although this little, white, 0.68 ounce rectangle made me as excited as I am on Christmas morning, I soon came to realize the restrictions.


After much wasted money experimentation, I have now come to find the golden standard of all apps. Don't get too excited, gamers. This is a blogger only post, ridden with tools to stash for our blog writing, photo editing, and general hard work.

The writing is the most important part of a blog post. Quite a debatable statement, but we'll pretend. Regardless, I've searched, dug, and snatched two that really bring in the smiles. First is BlogTouch - an easy to navigate, writing app to stash in your tool box. All in all, I'd say its pretty darn good, but it has a few downfalls. When it comes to scheduling posts and inserting links, the tide falls a little short. No frills and technology newbies, this ones for you.

HTML and 'too-cool-for-blogging' peeps, oh boy, do I have the one for you....Blogsy. Full on, Internet coding writing (and the rest of the population, you can write it like you would in s regular text editor) and high-tech genius make this one come out first in the race - but it was a really close call. Although it is slightly difficult to navigate, once you get a hold of the ropes, you can write and post with ease. Fully equipped with a built-in web browser and all the other bells and whistles, it does pretty much everything.

Enough, enough with all the writing. Photo addicts, this one is for you. At first, I wasted spent ten big bucks on the Photoshop app, but, Adobe, you need to sort yourselves out. Back to the drawing board - then came Snapseed. Although it doesn't offer layers and textures like Photoshop, the editing quality is INSANE. Yes, I rarely ever use all caps when writing, but I do when necessary. Easy navigation and darn amazing all around, the best part is still yet to come - it's free!

Apple addicts and techno freaks alike may have better advice for those seeking productivity on this device, but here's to you, from a blogger to a blogger (don't worry, I certainly am no Google customer service) - the app edit for posting, editing, and all thing blog-gy. At last, I'm talking about something other than beauty...

  1. I couldn't imagine working without a computer! Maybe it's because I major in a technological career field and computers, writing utensils, and paper are my best friends.

    1. Haha! It's just for the time being. Luckily, I don't have much word processing or sideshow making to do. Wow - don't you sound intelligent! I love a good pen and paper, though.
