For bloggers on the go, it’s important to have all the tools you may need to get things written down, and that could include the apps in which you jot down your thoughts as well as those which help you keep to a specific schedule and get things done throughout the day. Here’s a list of 10 must-have apps for bloggers.
Blogaway for Android
Blogaway is a client application for Blogger, allowing you to keep your blogger blog up to date with new posts and attach photos or videos as well, plus a whole lot more. If you have multiple accounts you can manage them all through the app. The interface is clean and simple making it easy to use, and you can even view and moderate comments on your posts from your phone.
If you’re trying to manage your blog in the middle of everything else, it can’t help to keep a to-do list application handy. Todoist can help you stay on task and do the things that need to get done. Stay on task and manage your tasks even if you don’t have a connection thanks to the offline support, and if you’re working on a project with others on your blog you can collaborate via the Todoist app and keep everyone in the loop.
Sometimes you just need to be able to write things down without any distractions, and that’s what Jotterpad aims to provide. If you’re blogging from your device you may already have enough distractions from the world around you, Jotterpad keeps things distraction free with a minimalist interface as it’s a simple text editor. Use it to jot down your thoughts and words and save what you come up with to post to your blog later on.
Google Keep can be a very useful tool for bloggers. It lets you take notes and save them at any point and syncs them to the cloud, and you can even add photos to your notes, so if you think of something you’d like to include in your blog later on you can save it as a note in Keep and come back to it later when you’re ready to write.
If you often save content for your blog while you’re out and about, Google Drive is a great way to keep everything stored and organized in one place. It syncs to all your devices so you can grab any files from anywhere when you log into your Google account, and if you’re not connected the offline support will keep things saved on your device till you become reconnected again. You can also share files with other people so if you need some feedback on a particular thing you’ve written, share the file via Drive in just a couple simple steps.
Wunderlist is another to do list application, similar to todoist above. It’ll let you set your tasks and stay on top of things you need to get done for your blog, and it syncs across devices so if you need to pick things back up on another device you can do so without hassle.
If you want something that offers just a little more than a simple text editor like Jotterpad, Google Docs could be what you’re looking for and is a perfect addition for any blogger who needs to write on the go. All your docs will sync with Drive automatically when connected to the web so they also sync across devices, and when you’re ready to post to your blog you’ll easily be able to copy and paste your context while also keeping backups of whatever it is you write down.
This is the official Android app for the popular Tumblr blog service, allowing you full control over your own blog to create new posts or edit existing ones, and follow all the other blogs on Tumblr which you have interest in. It allows you to share photos, videos, GIFs and more on your blog as well so you can make your content as rich as possible, and you can even respond to comments left on your posts.
If you primarily use Blogger for all your blog posts on the web, then you’ll likely want the official Blogger app for Android. You can create new posts right from the application no matter where you are, and if it’s ready to go out immediately when you’re done you can publish it right away. If not, you can save it to drafts and come back to it later on to polish things up. If you like to spruce up your posts with images, you can grab images for posts from the gallery or take a new one.
If you run a blog hosted by WordPress, having the official WordPress app is definitely something you should have installed just in case you need to post something on the go as well as fix or edit anything that has already been posted previously prior to your leaving your desktop or laptop.The app lets you write, edit, publish, add images, and check your WP stats anytime.
