Google releases official Blogger application for iPhone, iOS devices

Official iPhone app BloggerLast week Google published an official Blogger app for iOS users. iPad users are reporting that it’s not yet optimized for tablets, although it is usable. Most professional bloggers I know are using the WordPress platform, but there are still plenty of people who use Blogger because of the hassle free, ease of use.

Among some of the features are including photos from phone’s gallery, sync drafts between devices and, publish article from device, and more. Google says,

Today we’re excited to announce the new Blogger app for iOS. With the Blogger app, you can write a new blog post and publish it immediately or save it as a draft right from your iOS device. You can also open a blog post you’ve been working on from your computer and continue editing it while you’re on-the-go. Your blog posts are automatically synced across devices, so you’ll always have access to the latest version.

Pictures are worth a thousand words, and the Blogger app makes it easy to add photos either by choosing from the gallery or taking a new photo right within the app. You can also add labels and location to provide more details about the post.

From looking at some of the comments below the official announcement, users are having the following gripes:

Not a universal app for both iPhone and iPad. What a waste.

No landscape support? C’mon Google, get it together. It was almost excusable on Google+, a beta service, but you can’t screw up Blogger.

Something I would like to see in all versions is the option to view html, please?

Why it’s do difficult to access the application. Whats with the verification code where ur supposed to copy it somewhere in the application. While u can’t even access ur application neither ur blog through the blogger app!!!

So it looks like Google has some work to do on this before everyone will be happy.
