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@example.com, 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.
Many of us run a blog in some form or another. Whether it’s related to the industry in which you work, keeping track of interesting snippets you find online, or simply a showcase of funny giraffe pictures, the primary method for updating your blog is usually through a web interface. Various desktop blogging applications are available, but your iPhone is also a capable tool for posting updates and links, moderating comments, and keeping track of statistics.
Today we’ll be covering various different iPhone apps and techniques that can help you become a truly mobile blogger!
