The B post for #26Tech A-Z Challenge will preview Blogsy, a blogging app for the iPAD, with inbuilt multiple blog platform, image and video capabilities; and markdown support.
As this app is also relevant to many writers, consider this post also part of the monthly #IWSG – Insecure Writer’s Support Group posting schedule.
Blogsy, in my opinion, is the best app for blogging found on the iPAD. If you have an iPAD, a blog, image and video service accounts, and $5 – then this is the app for you.
Blogsy allows drag and drop of your pictures from your iPad photo album or the web (with an inbuilt browser), Picasa, Flickr, Facebook and Instagram accounts; videos from You Tube or Vimeo; formatting of your posts and images, and publishing to WordPress (.org and ‘com accounts), Blogger, TypePad, Moveable Type, Joomla, Drupal, IBM Connections, Tumblr, Squarespace and any other blog supporting Meta data.
Text editing features work with formatted text, HTML and Markdown (with a preview of the conversion into html) or TextExpander (for iOS) snippets. The text editing features also work well in the creation of rich emails.
What possibly won me over way back was the offline usage – I could write up a blog post, save it, and publish to draft or live once I got back online. You can also bring in previously published posts to edit them. And if you get stuck, there are easily accessible tutorial videos.
You will find the other posts under tag: #26Tech or an index post will be provided on May 1st.
A to Z: in April you will find other bloggers providing A to Z posts on many topics, through the 2014 Blogging from A to Z Challenge.
This blog post participated in the Insecure Writer’s Support Group, which runs the first Wednesday of the month. Go to the IWSG website to find many other writer’s sharing their posts, and for many regular tips and resources for writers.
