iPad is missing a native blogging app…

So, this is my first blog entry, completed with my iPad whilst remotely connected to my desktop computer…

What’s that?

Why, you ask?

Well, let me explain! I really like the functionality and ease with which I can create and publish a blog entry with Windows Live Writer, which I really consider to be one of the best blogging applications available today. The only drawback is, it is only available on Windows. by the very nature of the fact that many people want and in some cases need to get their blog post published to the net as soon as possible, it is extremely unfortunate that the applications currently available for the iPad and iPhone are somewhat lacking in their functionality and can be rather cumbersome.

However by utilising Teamviewer which is installed as a service on my home desktop and then by using the Teamviewer client app on my iPad, I can now connect to my desktop and remotely create my blog entry using Microsoft Live Writer with all its functionality.

Although not an ideal solution it is certainly an interesting one, but I would much rather be using Microsoft Live Writer as a native iPad/iPhone application, so what say you Microsoft?

I am truly lucky to have found Sharon Garratt, a wonderful partner to share my passions for food, technology, photography and travel with. I really don’t know how she puts up with me.

  • I wish would find their way to the iPad, sooner rather than later. I’m somewhat surprised we’re still waiting for them.

  • Good luck with it Matthew, you will have to let me know how you get on with it, it can be a little tedious, but I have tried the WordPress and Blogpress apps on the iPhone and iPad and find them both somewhat lacking, although they are suitable for a quick blog post, probably not so good for a full blown article.

  • Thanks. I’ll check this out. I too have been disappointed with blogging apps for iPad and iPhone. I’m planning on heading out on vacation and want to post while on the road.
