Top 8 Blogging Apps Android

Do you blog? I’ve been a regular blogger for quite some time, but typically use my MacBook to keep up with the writing and maintain things such as responding to comments, posting on social media, and that kind of thing. Social media is easy enough to manage on your mobile device, but the blog itself can be difficult to maintain when on vacation and without a computer, for example. Thankfully, there are a bunch of great blogging apps out there that bring the process of blogging to your Android smartphone or tablet and make it much easier to keep up with things. Of course, I’d much rather write on a laptop with a regular keyboard, but often you simply don’t have access to such luxuries and must make do with whatever you can lay your hands on! Many bloggers I know will typically queue up posts when away from their keyboard, on vacation or whatever, which is a great way to maintain a steady flow of content but you still need an app to maintain your blog in a more general manner. These are the best blogging apps for Android device, not only for bloggers but also for those who read them!

8. Feedly (Free)

Those who know blogging will know all about RSS feeds, and I figured I’d kick off this list by referring readers to one of the best RSS readers out there. Feedly has become something of a go to app for me when keeping up with my daily digestion of blogs, or at least has been since Google Reader closed its doors. – Download from Google Play

7. Hootsuite (Free)

Once you get a blog that has an established social media presence, you will often find yourself spending more time managing its various social pages than you do your own personal pages on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. It can be a real pain switching between these, and often reposting the same content to different sets of followers. An excellent way to manage these social media accounts is Hootsuite, which basically puts all your different social feeds in one place and then lets you post bulk updates across different platforms. A real time saver! – Download from Google Play

6. Buffer (Free)

Slightly slicker and more comprehensive an option than Hootsuite, Buffer is another great way to share your blogging content across various social media platforms. With this one, you can easily share to sites like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and more with the tap of a button. Posting bulk content across different feeds was never easier! One of the things I’ve noticed bloggers complaining about is the ability to schedule posts on their blogging platform like Blogger or WordPress but not on their respective social media profiles. Buffer is great in that it allows you to schedule things to post whenever you want to, even when you’re not away! – Download from Google Play

5. Weebly (Free)

Moving away from the social media management side of things and on to proper blogging software, Weebly is worth mentioning for its no nonsense approach. With it, you can easily create high quality blogs while on the go. It does lack the kind of features that set the likes of WordPress apart, but is great for beginners and features all the basic stuff that you could ask for, including the ability to make posts, view comments, check stats and post to Twitter or Facebook. – Download from Google Play

4. Squarespace (Free)

With so many of the blogging apps detailed here, it often depeneds on whether your have created a blog through the website – I mean, WordPress won’t be useful to you if you have a site on Tumblr, or whatever. I’m looking at the apps themselves, rather than the various blogging platforms, so it’s probably worth keeping that in mind. To dwell on the platforms for a moment, however, Squarespace is one of the more impressive recent additions to the world of blogging. The focus here is entirely on the minimalist aspects of design, with the site and the app reduced to a clean and concise design style that is really easy on the eyes and on the thumbs. There is no blogging service out there that allows you to create sites quite like those produced through Squarespace, for they are so clean and professional looking. – Download from Google Play

3. WordPress (Free)

WordPress is the blogging platform of choice for so many, and the app is certainly more than able to cater for its masses of users. The great thing about WordPress is that you can easily create a small blog or personal site through it, but there is no limit to what that can become through the service’s powerful features. Some of the most complicated websites out there made by big name companies were done through WordPress, and you simple wouldn’t know it. So yes, perhaps the best aspect of WordPress is this idea of catering for all – the big time website developers and small time bloggers alike. It’s very easy to create and publish content, then alter the design of your site to set it apart from the rest – there are hundreds of premade template themes to choose from which look great. You can even keep the blog private if you wish for it to be a personal thing.- Download from Google Play

2. Tumblr (Free)

Tumblr is a huge social name these days, and is perhaps the definition of a micro blogging service that has become a household name. I remember being initially critical of Tumblr in that it does in many ways dumb down the process of blogging, removing the idea that posting text updates is a mandatory thing and allowing users to express themselves through images and videos as well. This is why so many Tumblr sites are simply pages of images, with little to no text. Still, this one is a very powerful micro blogging tool and is perhaps best when you have some small idea and wish to run with it, to see how far it can be developed and if the idea has some kind of audience. Or, if you are an established website owner and wish to maintain some kind of social media presence by posting image-based updates. Tumblr is everything you want it to be, and is an excellent and colorful way to get into the world of blogging with a vast and various community.- Download from Google Play

1. Blogger (Free)

While it lacks the kind of potency that one would typically associate with WordPress, Blogger has gone from strength to strength since being acquired Google over a decade ago. One thing that has pleased Blogger users from back in the day is the fact that Google haven’t looked to rehaul or rebrand the Blogger platform but instead steadily improved it to push it ahead of blogging app rivals. That said, the insistence upon linking your blog with a Google account and creating a social presence through Google Plus can be a pain, especially if you don’t use Google for those things. Still. it’s a great entry way into the world of blogging for beginners! – Download from Google Play
