      I haven’t tried many of those apps. I did buy Blogpress which looked good until I tried to write in landscape cut the screen in half and one half was for typing and the other had a big blue submit button. Not the ideal experience!

      Hey, thanks! I just got my ipod touch 4th gen yesterday, and am trying to install the hubpages app. :) Looks like it’s gonna work perfectly XD

      My favorite applications are WordPress and Squarespace. I will make a try of other applications you have listed. Even though many applications are there for blogging in iphones and smartphones I don’t feel comfortable typing in it. For photobloggers who mainly post photos with few lines of text these phones would be really helpful. Anyway that’s a good round up of iphone applications.

      If you use Blogger then you may do it with any multimedia mobile. Just by operamini.

      I have tried blogging from my iPhone, and I agree that there are many great tools, but to me, the iPhone is just too small. It’s hard to write articles, although I’ve tried many times.

      What works great for me is to take notes and write a structure. I’m using WriteRoom when I’m not at home, and then I sync with my Mac when I get back home. If I just want a few notes, then I’ll use Things (it’s great for notes and stuff you need to remember).

      I think that the iPad will be a lot better for blogging than the iPhone, but it might be just me :)
