If you participate in the digital information age through blogging, then you know how difficult it is to keep up with your daily posts. Whether you are just too busy, or don’t want to sit in front of your computer after your workday is over, writing and publishing can be a daunting task.
There are a handful of excellent mobile apps that make it easier to stay active in the blogosphere while on the go. We’ve got a list of what we think are the best blogging apps for the iPhone and iPad for you today.
Blogging apps for iPhone and iPad
This list has been updated since its original publish date in 2014. These are the best blogging apps for iPhone and iPad as of 2020.
Probably the most popular blogging site for the tech industry is WordPress. This official app makes it possible for you to manage your posts on the go. You can create and edit posts and pages, upload pictures and videos, moderate comments, and view your website’s stats. When you are finished polishing your daily masterpiece, you can publish it right on your iPhone. You can also keep track of blogs you follow in your personal feed. Find new WordPress users to follow and keep track of their posts, as well. WordPress is available for free.
Maybe you’re not as prolific as a writer, but love to share your favorite photos and videos from around the Web. Tumblr is perfect for shorter posts with lots of visual content. It’s like the magazine of the blogging world. This official app gives you the ability to share content, including photos, videos, quotes, and more. Create and edit a post right from your iPhone or iPad and publish when you are ready. You can check your messages and reply to them, repost other content, and “like” posts, even offline. You can also post pictures and videos using app extensions. Tumblr is available for free.
Squarespace is a beautiful web-building platform that allows users to craft elegant websites. This official app gives you complete access to editing and managing your Squarespace content from multiple accounts. You can create and edit posts, add photos, format text, and create links while on the go. Keep track of comments and reply to readers with little effort. You can even mark a comment as spam “with a flick of your finger.” Instead of logging in and out of different pages, this app allows you to toggle between websites seamlessly. Squarespace is available for free.
The key to a seamless browsing experience is the ability to have multiple tabs open at the same time. The FastFeed app was specifically designed to create a new tab every time you tap on a link in Tumblr. In order to save space on your screen, the controls will slip out of sight when you scroll down on a post. You can view your feed in both landscape and portrait mode and switch between either the flow or grid layout. You can post any type of content, including photos, videos, chats, links, text, and quotes whether you are on or offline. FastFeed T1 is available for free.
With its drag-and-drop builder, you can easily create your blog or even an online store with Weebly by Square. Upload images from your library and choose from a variety of text options along with media and designs. You can monitor your site’s activity in the Site Dashboard, respond to blog comments, and edit your site on-the-go. Weebly by Square is available for free.
One more easy blogging app for iPhone and iPad to check out is Medium, where you can not only create your own site but enjoy those of other users. You can write your stories no matter where you go and switch between the app and Medium on the web without a hitch. Follow your favorites and receive a personalized feed for other bloggers like you. Medium is available for free with membership options.
