Do you want a simple way to share the things that happen on the go without taking tons of time to format a nice blog post? Posterous describes itself as the simplest way to blog and share anything you want, so let’s see if their new iPhone app brings the same tradition of simplicity for mobile blogging.
Posterous is one of the most unique simple blogging services. To start a blog, just send an email to [email protected], and seconds later, you’ll have a new Posterous blog with that email as your first post. This means that every iPhone and iPod Touch have a built in Posterous blogging app: the Mail app. You could also blog from a more advanced email app such as MarkdownMail. Still, when you want to post pictures or manage your blog itself, you’ll want more power. That’s where the new Posterous app comes in.

Have you been disappointed with the WordPress app and wanted more flexible ways to publish to your WordPress blog on the go? Thanks to the new Express for WordPress app and the WooTumblog plugin from WooThemes, you can now quickly publish a variety of content to your WordPress blog from your iOS device.
Express for WordPress is a new app designed to let you post anything you want to your WordPress-powered blog from your iPhone. One major problem of blogging apps is that most of us don’t want to write long, detailed posts from a cramped screen. Micro-blogging solutions such as Tumblr let you create shorter posts featuring an image, link, or quote, but WordPress sites are typically filled with longer posts. WooThemes is aiming to change that by making it easy to post simpler content to WordPress.
Have you been waiting for your iPhone to support Flash videos? Today we’re going to look at Skyfire, a new browser that lets you play Flash videos on your iOS device.
Ever since the iPhone was released in 2007, users have been clamoring for Flash support. Although Flash is still not supported in iOS, the situation is much better today since many sites are including h.264 HTML5 compatible video on their mobile sites.

Most of us rely on Google Maps and Search to get through the day, and never give the choice much thought. Today we’re going to look at the Bing app for iOS and see if it’s worth switching to a new search engine.

I spend a lot of time on the Internet, and that means that I have dozens of bookmarks on various browsers, which can take me a long time to prowl through. One easy way to get through all of the sites is to use an RSS feed reader to comb through the text.

Even before Tweetie had been gobbled up by Twitter, I had been uncomfortable with its seemingly endless feature-base; while it was better than most of its competitors, in my opinion, it had simply grown too complex to be enjoyable to me. When Twitter acquired Tweetie, renamed it and replaced its icon, I was ready to remove it from my home screen: Tweetie and I broke up, in a way. After months of jumping from Twitter client to Twitter client, I heard about Weet, the new kid on the block, and was eager to try it. And, dear readers, the results are encouraging.
Keep reading after the fold to find out what I think of Weet, how it measures up against its competitors, and whether you should try it too!
