Google Releases Blogger for iPhone

Earlier today Google announced the release of Blogger for iOS, an iPhone app aimed at Blogger users who have been looking for a way to edit or write new blog posts directly from their mobile devices. The app is free, and available on both iOS and Android. Blogger retains the service’s typical orange schemes; Blogger itself recently went under a major redesign for its entire platform. The app allows you to create a new blog post with tags, pictures and plain text, or edit an existing one or draft that you might want to finish on an iPhone.

You can also open a blog post you’ve been working on from your computer and continue editing it while you’re on-the-go. Your blog posts are automatically synced across devices, so you’ll always have access to the latest version. Pictures are worth a thousand words, and the Blogger app makes it easy to add photos either by choosing from the gallery or taking a new photo right within the app. You can also add labels and location to provide more details about the post.

This first version of Blogger runs on the iPhone and iPod touch — there’s no native iPad client yet. You can download Blogger for iPhone here.
