What's New in Version 184.108.40.206
Minor bug fixes.
What a completely infuriating experience this crappy app is. Once it was relatively easy to bring pictures into your Google blog with an iPad, now it is virtually impossible. It's as though Google and Apple have conspired to ensure that you are forced to use one system or the other but definitely not both. (Of course now even writing this review has become almost impossible as the words won't scroll up above the level of the Apple keyboard. really isn't that something Apple should have fixed about five years ago? ) So if you are hoping this app will let you select and place photos on your blog (like Safari no longer will) or even resize them, forget it. You may get a photo on there, but try to get more than that and it leaves you with a small square placeholder, and no photo. That's if you can even find the picture you want that is to Apple's apparently random photo cataloging. That photo stream picture you wanted to blog? It may or may not be in your photo stream, or your photo list, or your recently imported list, or your all imported list. So thanks Google and Apple. I have waisted an entire morning with this pile of rubbish and now have to consider how exactly I can share photos with friends in the future. Printing and snailmailing them probably. And Apple, fix this scrolling problem with the review section so people can read what they type.
For one of the best blogging sites on the internet they sure do know how to create a frustrating and clunky app.
For a start there is no auto save function. Which is fine because you should always remember to save your work, however, don't think you can quickly go and research something in the middle of writing a blog because it will refresh your app and lose all your work! Every other writing app seems to remember what you have written, why can't this one??!! So much time wasted !
Secondly, why have they still not fixed the pictures thing. It should be so easy just to insert a picture into your post. Why do I need to go online and finish off any post I want to make. It completely defeats the point of having a blogging app on my iPad. This isn't Facebook or Twitter. I'm not updating my blog with short poster every hour or so. I'm creating long and in depths post and most people who use it are. Why then is the app not designed for this!!
Despite what others have said in reviews, I've had none of them problems.. Maybe your google account is to blame? Anyway, I use this blogger app on my iPhone 4S and my iPad Air and performs quickly and easily for me. I mainly use it on my iPad and iPhone when I cannot get to a computer (ie. when in public, out and about or someone is already using my computer!) it's a brilliant app and would be completely lost without it! It's a shame other people are having problems but I can gladly say, I am going without problems with this app and recommend it with 10 out of 10 for apps. ❤
