We’ve talked previously about what apps are useful if you’re an iPhone user and a blogger, and now it’s the turn of Android! We have to admit, we’re not regular Android users, so have chosen apps similar to the ones we looked at previously. All apps are free, so it’s worth trying them out to see if they suit you! First up – Google Drive. Writing your posts in the Google Drive app is a good idea, because it automatically saves constantly and then you can edit the posts when you’re at your desktop computer as well. We’d use this to draft out posts while on the bus to work, then finish them in Google Docs when we reached the office! If you want to quickly check your stats – perhaps you’ve been asked by a PR to provide your monthly stats but you’re out shopping – GAnalytics is a great app to easily see the information you need. The next two are dependent on what you have your blog set up on, Blogger has released an official app which looks pretty useful! Depending on your typing skills, you might not want to write an entire post on here, but it’s useful for those last minute edits. If you’re a WordPress user like us, then you’ll be pleased to know that there’s also an official app for Android. Again, it’s not going to be that great for writing entire posts, but if you need to reschedule a post, or approve comments, this is great! Finally, to keep up to date with your favourite blogs, Bloglovin‘ is a great app which provides your subscriptions in a mobile friendly way. Since many bloggers have switched to using Bloglovin’ due to the Google Reader closure, this is really useful to have if you’ve got 5 minutes to kill! Do you use your phone to keep your blog updated? What Android apps do you find useful?
having chrome downloaded is great to. along with evernote. i tend not to blog from my phone but i will create posts if i have an idea and then come bck to them on the computer
Totally forgot about Evernote! That’s why I use Google Docs sometimes to write up posts, because I know I can access it anywhere :)
