A new blogging app has just been released by Pico called Posts. I found out about while flipping through Flipboard. Patrick Jordan over at iPad Insight seems pretty impressed after he gave it a try. He downloaded it after reading a review by Cult of Mac author Charlie Sorrel.
LISBON, Portugal—August 2, 2012—Pico today introduced Posts, a brand new blogging app for the iPad. Posts offers the best way to manage blogs on the iPad for both experienced and new users alike. Setting up existing blogs is extremely easy, as is creating a brand new one from scratch. Both the Blogger and WordPress blogging platforms are supported, including self-hosted WordPress blogs.
Multiple blog support makes it easy to quickly check at a glance what’s going on in all the blogs that have been set up in the app. The post browser displays recent posts neatly organized by date and the built-in calendar lets the user quickly jump to a different day. Posts from all the blogs can even be displayed simultaneously alongside one another.
The built-in post editor provides easy formatting of text and very simple insertion and manipulation of images and video. An HTML editor can also be used to fine tune the source code.
Keeping up-to-date with comments posted to the blogs is easy, with the app keeping track of which ones have already been read. Moderation tasks can be performed quickly and effortless, and new comments or replies to existing comments can be quickly written and submitted to the blog.
When internet access is not available, Posts app is able to keep working in offline mode. Changes made to posts, pages or comments are kept in the Outbox and are submitted to their corresponding blogs as soon as internet connectivity is restored.
