Testing Blogsy…Blogging Directly From My iPad

by James Ball on April 19, 2011

You’ll have to be patient with me on this one…this is just a test. I just spent $2.99 and I couldn’t wait to try it out. Truth be told – I bought the app just to get the awesome typewriter icon! Seriously though, the ability to sit here on the couch and post straight to my blog from my iPad, yeah, I’m in!

The good news is that if you are seeing this, it works. I haven’t any bad news at this point, save the fact that I wish I could tell you more about the app. This is my very first attempt.

I can say that it’s as easy as they claim to drag-and- drop images, videos, and more. I was able to easily drag the logo and text image over and place them where I wanted. I did the same with a few videos so that you can investigate a little deeper for yourself. Please do click through to learn more about the Blogsy app.

“If what you are looking at doesn’t resemble a train-wreck…color me well pleased with this investment!”

I need to tell you that this post has taken quite a bit longer than it would have sitting at my desk logged-in to my WordPress dashboard. I’ll keep working with it for a while before I make any final judgment. For now, I’m just tickled that there’s an app for this! I may actually get to go to the beach on vacation this year and leave my laptop at home.

Well, I thought I was dragging over actual videos. Only the thumbnail and link came over. I did drag another video over but it looked odd…not like the others that I thought were videos. I'm guessing that it works just fine if you know your way around a little bit better.

Now here and looking at the post, I love it, I love Blogsy already!

Thanks for commenting today Chris! I agree that once you have access to the native gallery, this app will be near perfect!

Hi, I'm Lance, one of the guys behind Blogsy.

Thanks for buying and testing out Blogsy. We loving coming by posts like this.

I have some good news for you guys. We should have a version of Blogsy with uploading from the iPad photo gallery to the testers within a week. Then we will work out bugs and submit it to Apple. The wait won't be that much longer.

I hate to ask this but have you left a review/rating on the App Store. We chose not to put in one of those annoying popups asking for reviews and now we think that may have been a mistake. Those ratings lead to sales which pay the salaries and expenses which enable us to continue improving Blogsy. Again, I am sorry to ask this.
