Must Have iPhone Apps For Bloggers

The internet has given us many wonderful things in the recent past such as social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and the multitude of others out there. It has given us endless ways we can communicate with our friends and family, but still one of the most prominent ways we communicate with the world via the web is through the humble blog.

Some blogs are maintained just for the fun of it, while others see it as a serious business. If you’re one of the people who take their blogging seriously and you happen to have an iPhone, then read on as we outline the top apps all bloggers should have.

1 – Instagram: Sitting at the top of this list is the most downloaded photo blogging app for the iPhone. It can help you take and share beautiful pictures with the ease you have come to expect from an iPhone app.

2 – Dropbox: Long before Microsofts’ SkyDrive and Google Drive there was Dropbox. Although you have to pay for storage space greater than 2GB, it is still considered the best app there is for storing your documents, photos and other digital files.

3 – WordPress: If you don’t know what WordPress is then you probably haven’t been blogging for very long. Rightfully crowned as the king of blogging software, this app for your iPhone will help you effortlessly post to your WordPress based blog.

4 – Blogger: Google’s attempt to cut a slice of the blogosphere has been popular with a lot of folk because of its ease of use. If you happen to have a Blogger account then this app will make publishing your next post a dream come true.

5 – Analytics Pro: So you have written a number of blog posts now and would like to see how many people have actually viewed them. This app is perfect for checking out your Google Analytics and can give you all the details you would expect from the full web app, such as the locations people came to your blog from and the keywords they used in the search engines to find it.

6 – Flipboard: Last, but certainly not least, this app is a must have if you not only like to create blogs but also read them. One of the most popular apps in the app store, Flipboard will help you keep a finger on the pulse of the blogosphere by bringing all you’re news feeds into one place.

These are just a handful of the apps which we think every serious blogger should have installed on their iPhone. They help you post, read and measure the success of any blog you happen to be running, so you no longer need to be next to a computer to get started on your next great post.

Don’t just take our word for it though, go ahead and give them a try yourself. We are certain that once you try these apps you will be wondering how you ever managed to blog without them.
