Blogpress (iPhone and iPad)
I use this app to write blogs on both of my iDevices. I have accounts through Blogger (google), but this app works with all the blog hosts, such as WordPress, Tumblr, Joomla, TypePad and Live Spaces. Adding a blog from these providers is really quick and easy.
Once the blog has been added, writing new posts is very easy. You can add links, pictures and use some RTF font effects too (through HTML, but you don't need to know how to code, the app looks after that for you).
You can save posts on the device for editing and later publishing, or you can publish directly after writing the post. You can also view posts that have already been published, and edit them if you need to.
There's also a facility to automatically send your posts to a twitter and/or facebook account, so sharing is taken care of for you without any further effort.
This is a great app, although the current price of €2.39 is a little steep, in my opinion. If you have a good internet connection all the time, you can do your blogging through the web page of your service provider instead. Where Blogpress really comes in handy is when you want to write/edit while offline.
