Whether you already run a blog or you're thinking of starting one, this collection of apps is for you. Perhaps you're tired of being tethered to your computer, or you think you don't have enough time to blog because you're always mobile. Fortunately, these apps offer enough utility to get the job done. Read on to find the app that best suits your needs.


Blogger for Android Google

No doubt the most simplistic of the three, Blogger is Google's, well...blog platform. The app only has a couple of screens to look at, but that isn't always a bad thing. If you're just looking to title, date, share some thoughts, and add a picture or video, Blogger is your app. You can manage all of your blogs through the app's interface, and sign-in is easy if you have your Google account linked to your phone.

In the posts area, convenient edit and delete links are available for making quick changes. There's also a Favorites tab and the last tab displays info about your posts, followers, drafts, and custom settings. Pressing the New Post icon in the top right-hand corner opens a selection screen for the type of content you want to share. You can choose text, photo, link, quote, or video. Of the three, this app is the most polished-looking.

Power bloggers, this one is for you. The WordPress app for Android encompasses all of your on-the-go blogging needs. Whether it's create new posts or edit old ones, or add photos and videos through the shortcuts in the main menu, this app does what you need to stay mobile. WordPress for Android runs very fast and sees optimal usage on tablets, but it's still good for smartphones, too. The app can log in to WordPress.com blogs or self-hosted blogs, and even let you view blog statistics.
