Potential, But Needs Work
This seems like it could be a really good app. It has potential. However, at the moment, it doesn't work particularly well. I like the simplicity of the opening page, but it has some issues with actually posting things. Here are the errors I have experienced (I am working with Blogger, a Macbook, and an iPod touch, by the way):
-When posts are deleted on the website (via computer) they still appear on my iPod. When they are deleted on my iPod, they still appear on the website. I got this to correct a couple of times by restarting the iPod, but it is still buggy.
-It does not post the correct time on blog posts. Minor detail, but a little annoying. I thought perhaps this had to do with the clock or time settings on my iPod, or my location according to Blogger, so I spent a while messing around with them. No results, though. It seems to be stuck in Pacific Standard Time.
It would also be nice to have the option to change the text formatting on blog posts.
Ever since upgrading my self hosted blog to WordPress 3.0 (and now 3.01), I haven't even been able to use the WordPress iPhone app. Even the iBlogger app would no longer function. For the record, my desktop blog authoring tool also doesn't function properly with my site. I've been doing some research on this and apparently there are a lot of other people who are having the same problems as I am.
Well, I tried this blogging app and it works absolutely flawlessly. I don't know how, or why, but I am glad it works. And for that, it gets a perfect rating. I can post photos totally pain free as well. Everything works as it should, including the ability to geotag blog postings.
BlogWriter or BlogPress?
I own both of them. I can publish my post enclosing my photo with BlogWriter but I can not do this with BlogPress. I receive the follwing error message in BlogPress "Failed, some problems when uploading photos. Please check your connection." And while BlogWiter Post shows the photos, BlogPress shows the link to the photos only.
