Probably the most obvious in terms of apps to download are the WordPress and Blogger apps, depending on which platform you use. With both apps you can log into your account and draft and publish new posts, as well as add in pictures and tags. It’s blogging on the go made easy!
If the WordPress and Blogger apps were the most obvious, Evernote is probably the most valuable. Evernote allows you to “jot” down notes via typing them out or recording an audio file, upload files, and take pictures. So if you’re ever in a situation where you need to quickly take down an interesting blog post idea without crafting an actual post, Evernote allows you to do so quickly and efficiently.
Like regular Google Analytics, this app allows you to monitor your website’s traffic, bounce rate, how long people spent on your site, etc. – the only difference is that you can do it all from your phone!
HootSuite combines all of your social media into one easy-to-access app. It also allows you to schedule updates to your statuses and then monitor your traffic from those updates.
This app syncs up with Google Reader and allows you to access all of the blogs and websites that you follow in one organized place. It is basically an RSS feed for your phone, and the best part is that it works whether you’re on or offline. It’s the perfect way to stay up to date on what’s going on within your niche of the blogging community and keep fresh post ideas coming in.
Phones are quickly becoming the new mini-computers which allow you to do anything and everything while you’re on the go. Nothing is more frustrating than having a fantastic post topic and then losing it because by the time you get somewhere to put pen to paper you’ve forgotten the gist of what you wanted to say. The next time inspiration strikes, be prepared by downloading one (or all!) of these apps to ensure you capture every great idea.
