I have been using an iPad from last 3 months and it’s probably one of my best investment in recent time in terms of gadget. I have been an iPhone users from years, and after buying an iPad, I don’t mind dumping my iPhone and settle down with any Android device just for the heck of it. Anyways, after buying iPad, the very first thing which I needed was to find the applications which is meant for bloggers. Basically, iPad 9.7 Inch display will let you most of the things including reading, writing and keeping track of social media updates.
Needless to say, if you are planning to buy an iPad, you should settle down with a 3G connection, because it’s one Gadget which you would be keeping with yourself all the time. Anyways, here goes my Blogging apps for iPad collection . You can read about them in brief and download one which suits your need. Not everyone of them is free, but those paid once are also worth your money.
Free Blogging apps for iPad
If you are a WordPress blogger, this is the first app every WordPress blogger would like to have on it’s iPad. This is an official free app from WordPress team and it lets you do tons of thing and works great for blogging directly from your iPad. Though mostly I use it to reply to comments, check stats and quick editing of a post. Specially, if you running a personal blog, WordPress app on iPad will make your blogging life easier on iPad.< Download >
Flipboard for iPad:
When it comes to reading apps, Flipboard along with Zite are my favorite Feed reader for iPad. Probably, if I make a feed reader blogging apps for iPad, these two will take the number one chart. Most of the time, iPad works as a reading device for me and I have already showcased Flipboard earlier at ShoutMeLoud, and it’s perfect app if you are planning to use iPad to keep track of latest news. You can integrate Flipboard with your Twitter, Facebook, Google reader and custom searches. The magazine style look would make your reading experience really comfortable. <Download >
Pulse News reading app:
Pulse is another reading app for your iPad and before Flipboard, it used to be my favorite RSS reader app on my iPad. Pulse integrates with your Google reader account but again there is limit in number of feeds which you can import on your Pulse app. Though it’s useful if you wish to keep track of latest news from particular sites like Techmeme, digg and so on. < Download >

Both this app doesn’t need any introduction. One biggest advantage of Dropbox and Evernote as they are available on Cross-platform and making this app available on iPad, they quickly make into the list of must have Blogging iPad apps. I have Evernote and Dropbox installed on my laptop and on my iPhone and iPad. This keep my everything syncs as they are one of my most used apps. < Download Evernote > <Download Dropbox>

For any blogger, communication is the key. No matter, where ever you are travelling you need to have some gadget which can quickly hook you to chat or better video chat when required. Skype is one such app which I recommend to every blogger as it’s one of the professional free messenger which everyone uses. Specially when you are travelling, a quick video call will take care of all your worries. <Download>
Since we mentioned Facebook, how can we forget Google+. In coming days, Google+ buttons are going to be one of the factor to determine search engine ranking. And having tons of followers on Google+ will be very useful for you from now on. One simple way is to get more follower on Google+ is stay active. Keep sharing useful stuff and add meaningful comment on other posts. Though Google+ for iPad is also not optimized for iPad screen but it’s good enough to get your work done on your iPad. <Download>

This is a dedicated iPad app from Twitter and this is as good as any of the premium or paid Twitter app for iPad.
