Best 5 Blogging Apps for Android

Many of us write blogs, whether it’s a personal blog, professional one or micro blogs on sites such as twitter or Facebook. Blogging is interesting and a good way to connect with people. And now with high-end mobile phones blogging is not limited to desktop computers, it can now also be done on various mobile platforms.

The platform we are going to talk about today is Android. Android offers great deal of applications for almost every purpose. So today we are going to talk about some great apps to help you blog from your android phone. Almost all popular blogging platforms have their official app for android users. Using these apps you could do almost every blog management related work from writing new blogs to managing already published blogs or readers comments.

Following are the Six most Powerful Blogging Apps for Android Phones –

  • WordPress

    WordPress for Android is an Open Source app that empowers you to write new posts, edit content, view stats, and manage comments with built-in notifications. WordPress for Android supports both WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress (2.9.2 or higher) blogs.

  • Blogger

    With Official Blogger blog you can easily publish posts with pictures, labels and location information on your blogger blogs. Also, you can view the list of posts and if you have multiple accounts or blogs, you can easily switch between them.

  • Tumblr

    Tumblr for Android App lets you easily post to your Tumblr blog on the go. It supports Text, Photo, Link, Chat, Quote, Audio and Video. You can even set advanced post options and edit, too. The app has a built-in dashboard which allows you to View, like, reblog posts, view your blogs, see your posts, drafts and queue. Also supports Landscape view.

  • Posterous

    Posterous Android app lets you Post any combination of text, photos, and videos files to your posterous blog. Also provides you with Sharing options to automatically share your blog to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr & 20 other sites. Plus it automatically optimizes all images and videos mobile viewing.

  • AnyPost

    Anypost is a full featured Ping.fm client that syncs with your Ping.fm account. Using this app you could post to sites like Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, and more with ease. Attach photos or update your current location. You can even view your recent posts including photo thumbnails.

These applications are a must if you write time critical articles like news stories or if you like to blog on the go. And I would also like to add here that writing large blogs is not practically possible on mobile phone because of their small size and slow typing speed. But you can easily write short blogs or even manage already published blogs with the help of above mentioned applications. I mostly use the WordPress for android app for approving new blog comments. If you know of any other mobile blogging app do let us know in the comments.

  • Nice list of apps….thanks :)
