HI everyone

I've been been blogging for ages via a Windoze NetBook - sorry for swearing and I use 'Blogger' as my platform.

Last week, I took delivery of my shiny new Transformer and have been blown away by 99.99% of it.

The 0.01% left is the poor selection of apps for blogging. I'm hoping someone here can give me a slap and point me in the right direction. I've been up and down the google play store and I think I've tried them all. I don't think my blogging needs are unusual, but there's no app that I can find that does ALL the following:

- Schedule posts
- Position photos ANYWHERE in the post
- Label photos
- Pick from my drop-down list of blog-labels (rather than have to guess what they are)

The closest I've got is the official app 'Blogger', but that won't let me schedule and it does an irritating thing of putting ALL added photos together at the bottom of the post - yuk! - Not much good for story-telling.

Anyone else a serious blogger who's got round this?

Thanks

Steve

Re: [Q] Blogging App
I stopped blogging a while -- my private server got hacked,and got blacklisted by Google in the process -- but I think I'd prefer the browser interface. SInce you have a FullHD screen, it's not half bad. Although I was on WordPress, I expect the situation to be similar: the app was limited to say the least, and I had all kinds of plugins running on the side that were not supported by its interface anyway...

Re: [Q] Blogging App
I'm using windows live writer in my blog hosted on Blogger. Not bad and is free. Give it a try.

U can have a look at my blog haroldchia.com. I used it to post my blog entries.

Blogger Apps
A good suggestion about the web version. But I don't think that allows me to create blogs OFFline. In other words, don't I have to be connected to the internet to use the full Blogger web interface?

Ah, that's new information. NO, I don't think you can actually use the online interface in offline mode - there's no facility to save posts locally.

Might this serve you (Googled it, to be honest):

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....blogger&hl=en

It does have scheduling facility...

3rd in a row:

It does seem to have relatively intrusive ads. Here's the paid (ad-free) app:

Aaaannnnnd....we keep going.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=search_result
(unsure if this supports scheduling!)

This app specifically states that one of its main points is placement of pictures in the text:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ndroid.blogger

Looks nice!

Thumbs up Blogger Apps
Thanks!

This is a good app. When I installed it though, I couldn't find the schedule facility. Seems to look different on a Tablet compared to a phone

Cheers anyway - good call

Steve
