I'm writing this, like the past six or seven posts, using Posts for iPad. Personally, nothing beats Microsoft's Livewriter for writing blog posts and that won't change (remember that I'm not really that tech savvy and like things to just work.) However, to avoid carting around a laptop I've been on the look out for a blogging app for iPad for some time. Here are some brief thoughts. Pleae bear in mind that I like things to be intuitive; that I don't ever go looking long for answers and that I have no patience....
The start up screen is a nice layout and, contrary to some reviews, Posts connected to and import by blogger setup without a problem. I can view and edit all existing posts, although there's some differences in the layout of posts on line. In particular, I would like to be able to crop and perform basic editing of photos within the app and like hem to stay centred when published as they do in the editor. However, these are minor bugs when posting on the move.
Although there doesn't seem to be a photo editing feature, it is very easy to insert photos, hyperlinks and text. I also like that my exisiting photostreams are available. Tagging posts is also straight forward as is pasting text.
Posts can be edited on the move and saved as either local drafts or uploaded as drafts to blogger, a nice feature as sometimes I like to take my time writing posts.
One drawback, which is linked to my dislike and inability to use touchscreen keyboards, is that quite a few typos creep in. That's no fault of the app though. Furthermore, I have found that Posts needs a little time to catch up every now and again, especially on longer posts that contain a few images. I haven't tested the ability to manage multiple accounts yet.
Overall, I'm happy and impressed, especially as the app cost me no money so I'd recommend for blogging on the go, but will stick to the more powerful desktop Livewriter for main posts.
