When ever we talk about popular Blogging apps on iPhone I always miss seeing one for BlogSpot bloggers. Though we have BlogPress app for iPhone which is a paid app and most likely I would pass it on and prefer working on my laptop. Now here is some treat for our BlogSpot blog readers, Google has released official BlogSpot iPhone App which is free and would let you quickly publish blog post while you are on the move. Though with the iPhone app release BlogSpot become one of the last Blogging platform in the series to launch an official iPhone app and in my opinion this is just a cover up.
This official BlogSpot iPhone app comes with couple of basic features like adding photos, writing and editing posts, and with the launch on new BlogSpot dashboard, I expected Google to integrate some of the important features like to check stats, add videos and pretty much all basic features which you would expect a well optimized iPhone app to do. Adding more to it, Google should have optimized this app for iPad screen.
Anyways, before I would show more of my disappointment with Blogger official iPhone app, here are some of the screenshots which will explain why I’m so sad after using this app:
Nonetheless, I alteast expected to see an option to moderate comments and that’s one of the most used feature on my WordPress app for iPhone. As it is, Google is trying hard to cover up the lost market in BlogSphere in last couple of years and by releasing a featureless official app, I guess they should seriously rethink their strategy for BlogSpot.com.
Anyways, you can download this app for free from app store and if you have an iPhone or other iOS device, I would love to know your first hand opinion with official BlogSpot iPhone app. Meanwhile also check out 5 free iPhone apps for Webmasters.
