If you own or maintain your own blog, you may not be aware of the fact that there could be an iPhone or iPad app out there that could help you improve how you conduct your day-to-day business.

Whether you’re looking around for an app that could help you save time in managing your blog, or even if you’re searching for an app that will help give you inspirational ideas for blog posts, here are 6 apps every blogger should be aware of:

  1. WordPress (Free)
  2. WordPress for iPhone/iPadIf you use WordPress for your blog, then this iPhone app will allow you to disapprove or approve comments on your blog directly from your iPhone or iPad, and will also allow you to add new posts and edit pages with ease.

    The app is available to download for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and is also available for the Android, Blackberry, Nokia, Windows Phone and so much more.

  3. ShoZu ($4.99)
  4. ShoZu for iPhone/iPad
    This app allows you to connect to all of your networks right from your phone which is ideal if you’re used to using various social networking sites to promote your blog. The app currently supports over 50 networks some of which include Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Blogger, Photobucket, Photoshop, WordPress, Myspace, and much more. It may be pricey, but well worth it if you’re looking for a time-saving app.

  5. Evernote (Free)
  6. Evernote for iPhone/iPad
    If you’ve ever thought of a good idea for a blog post when you’re on the go or if you’re sick of scratching your post ideas down on a piece of paper, then try out this app to maintain an organized database of all of your notes. This app not only allows you to save all of your notes so you can look them over at a more convenient time, it also allows you to record your notes as a voice memo as well.

  7. PingDom (Free)
  8. PingDom for iPhone/iPad
    This app is an essential for bloggers because it will notify you whenever your blog is down or if your site is experiencing any technical difficulties.


  9. Pulse News Reader (Free)
  10. Pulse News Reader for iPhone/iPad
    If you’re the type of blogger who gets your inspiration by reading different news stories from different publications, then this app is a must. Pulse helps users access the top news stories from all of their favorite sites and blogs; so instead of going to each site individually each and every day you can access all of your sites at one time.

  11. Jott (Free)
  12. Jott for iPhone/iPad
    If you happen to be an unbearably slow typist and/or you’re sick of typing out all of your blog posts, then try this app out for size. Jott is a free voice-to-text transcription service so all you have to do is speak into the recorded interface and then your words will be typed up in your Jott notes automatically for you.

Very helpful post! I find I use my iPad a lot while blogging. Evernote is essential to keep track of ideas I have while on the go. I also use Dropbox (free) to transfer files between my devices.

I am currently using Pulse and it is really good. Haven’t really tried the others. Will install them today and give them a try

You must try WordPress and Evernote. They are good.

I didn’t realize PingDom had an app – just downloaded. One of my top five apps: Mercury web browser. It beats Safari hands down.
