A New Blog Editor

You may have noticed that I have been using a new blog editor for the last few weeks. Blog Pad Pro is a very easy to use WYSIWYG blog editor for WordPress blog (either .com or .org).

One of the reasons I like it is it has more functionality than Blogsy. 

As well as your standard editing tools, you can also check your WordPress reader and see your blog stats. It is also much easier to add links. You can also choose wether you want to have the menu on the left or right hand side.

You can operate more than one blog, I have two WordPress blogs and find it very easy to write posts for both of them through the app. When you first want to start writing a post, you tap on the ‘B’ at the top and choose the blog you wish to use.

You can see and edit previous blog posts. To create a new post tap on the ‘+’ and enter the detail of the post. 

It’s very easy to schedule posts, but you can’t set up the categories and tags at this stage. Once the post has been created you can click on the gear in the top right corner.

This enables you to edit the categories and tags for the post.

Blog Pad Pro is available in the App Store. The FAQs and ‘How Tos’ are comprehensive but more importantly the customer service is fantastic, prompt replies to emails and the most recent update addressed an issue that I had raised – so they definitely listen to the users.

    Hi Katie.
    I didn’t know this app. I heard much about Blogsy but the app did not meet my requirements.
    These are:
    – a plain compact list of all blogs with title, date and link
    – a search function for the editor and within the list

    So I would appreciate a short note about an updated version of BlogPad which supports tagging, categorizing and beyond.

    At the time I use the WordPress for iOS app. This app yet has not been fully developed although there are many suggestions from the user side. It seems to me that WP does not focus on what users of iOS devices need.
    Thanks.

      I agree, the WordPress app is not very useful on an iOS device.

      If you want to find out more about Blog Pad Pro, then their blog is very well written with lots of FAQs. Also they are very good at getting back to you when you email with questions.
