September 19, 2012 - 5 minutes read
Well I have searched and searched for the right app to allow me to post articles from my iPad with as many capabilities as the web based admin area of WordPress. Finally I found one that suits my needs.

Blogsy is a native iPad app that gives you the functionality of the web based admin area of WordPress. The app has some really great features such as drag and drop for adding photos, multiple supported platforms, and source code view to name a few.

Create WordPress Post from iPad using Blogsy

That’s not a problem as Blogsy supports as many accounts as you have. See this in action in our “Drag and Drop” how-to video.

First, if your blogging platform is not supported by Blogsy or doesn’t use the MetaWeblog API but provides the ability to email-to-post then you can use Blogsy to post to your blog. Second, you can send richly formatted emails to friends and family. Finally, other internet services have features provided through email. For example you can send an email to Mail Chimp and it will send it to all your subscribers. Our “Email” how-to video shows this in action.

Upload images from your iPad to your blog’s media library, Picasa, Flickr and Facebook all at the same time.

We have two how-to videos that show how to use the uploading feature or the direct drag in method. The titles of these how-to videos are called “Uploading Images” and “Direct / Offline Support” Make sure to check them out.
