Testing iPad blogging with Blogsy

The Blogsy app in action

For a long time the iPad blogging landscape has been a horrible, barren mess, with barely any decent blogging apps to be seen. Most blog platforms’ editors didn’t function in mobile Safari in any useful way. Blogging using the iPad was, at best, a challenge and, at worst, an impossibility.

Hopefully, this has just changed. I saw on the Everything Typepad blog that the Blogsy app now supported that service and, as an optimistic soul, I napped a copy, downloaded it to my iPad, and was pleased to see that it supports Movable Type as well. So, this is a first test run to see how well it works. 

This far into the post it’s been a pretty impressive experience – but I’m getting the impression that I need to watch some of the videos to get a good handle on how some of the dragging and dropping works, especially around links. 

Time to publish and see if I’m still impressed…
