Android app Blogger gives users more options

by Caitlin M. Foyt

For the blogger who never stops updating, Blogger allows you to post anywhere from your Android phone.

Writers who use the Blogger platform can use this app to write posts, take photos from directly inside of the application, or even pull from your phone's photo gallery.

If you have a whole bunch of time, you can write in-depth posts, and publish them immediately, or you can work on it in pieces, and save the draft for later. What's especially neat about the ability to save drafts, though, is the fact that you can update from within the app and it'll still be there the next time you log-in to your account on an Internet browser.

If you have multiple Blogger or Google accounts, you can easily switch between them. When you log in, you just have to specify which blog, account or alias you're writing under. When you're ready to switch things up, you just tap your phone's "Menu" button and select the "Switch Account" tab.

If you're interested in celebrating the diversity from where you post, you can share your location by activating the location bar and selecting the correct location. This information will be included in your post. It's by no means an essential feature, but with social networking sites like Foursquare and Twitter, "checking-in" at different locations has become popular.

There's not a whole lot to Blogger, but it does what it sets out to do. The app looks and feels exactly like its mother site, which is great for consistency, but it also means the app is easy to navigate, especially for users who are already familiar with the platform.
