By Guest Author

As a blogger you need to stay connected and updated regarding the latest trends in the blogosphere and inside your own niche.

These days this doesn’t mean browsing through websites on your desktop, though. We are mobile now, but luckily we carry a computer with us anywhere we go (the smartphone). If you are an Android user I want to share with you 10 applications that will make your life as a blogger easier. Check them out:

Here’s I’m going to list of top 10 useful Android apps for bloggers to help you maintain your blog using a mobile device and get things done when you’re away from your computer.

1. WordPress App for Android

No doubt that WordPress is one of the most popular blogging platforms on the Internet. You can make use of this app to directly get access to your WordPress admin panel and publish blog posts. It allows you to perform many essential tasks like moderating comments, editing, adding photos and videos and managing your blog straight from your smartphone.

2. Blogger App for Android

Blogger is the second most used blogging platform, and if you’re using Blogger as your blogging platform than this app is for you. It can help your blog in the go and enjoy the tremendous experience. Cheers to Google for creating such a remarkable application which can be accessed to through your Android smartphone.

3. Hootsuite App for Android

Hootsuite is a social media Android apps that allows you send updates to Twitter and Facebook. Plus it also allows you to schedule updates on your social networks and view the click-through rates. You can manage your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Foursquare on the go with Hootsuite for Android

4. Google Reader App for Android:

Google reader is one of my favorite app because it helps me in getting the updates from my favorite blogs, including Daily Blog Tips, all at once place. It could be a time consuming process to check the updates from all blogs and websites and to get everything in systematic order in once place, Google reader app for Android is perfect solution.

5. Google Analytics App for Android

This is the most useful app for bloggers who love to crunch over the numbers. This app makes it easy to check your blog stats, number of pageviews, visitors location, traffic sources and lots of other things through Google Analytics on your mobile device.

6. Paypal App for Android

You can use this app to manage your Paypal account on the go. Make use of this app and shop for the things you love, send money to anyone, transfer money to collaborators and lots more. This app can help you check your balance from anywhere at anytime even if you are not cool with banking on any kind with phones.

7. Gmail App for Android

Gmail is one of the most desirable email clients, and pretty much every blogger out there use it. Through the app you can easily connect your different custom domain email addresses. Gmail app for Android helps you keep your conversations going on everywhere you go. I know you are probably already using it, but hey I needed to include it to make a true top 10 list.

8. Facebook App for Android

Facebook App for Android helps you stay connected and share status updates, review your upcoming events, chat with friends, share links and checkout your news feed all from your home screen. In my opinion the app is also better than the mobile site experience, so check it out.

9. Twidroyd App for Android

Twidroys app for Android is the only Twitter application that works great in your Android smartphone. It has a free and paid version, but the paid version is very nice and worth few bucks. It let’s you do everything like see websites and view photos next to tweets. A must have for Twitter power users.

10. Writer App for Android:

It is a basic notebook app that can help you write your drafts and copy-paste them later with Writer even if you don’t have an Internet connection. Whenever you feel you’re in writing mood, open this app and it allows you to focus on nothing but writing.

Conclusion:

Overall, with the variety of applications available in the Google Play store blogging with a mobile device is really easy and fun.

    @Andi, Android can make your blogging life to so easier If you start using these apps. I hope you’ll enjoy using these apps 🙂

  • Cathy

    Will you be providing best apps for bloggers with iPhones?

  • Peter Ibold

    I got the WP app and I’m very satisfied. I do not post articles via smartphone, but I use the app to moderate comments, just like you wrote. It’s comfortable and guarantees a quick repsonse time.

    I have the WordPress app on my HTC Sensation XE phone and my HTC Flyer tablet, but found myself resorting to my laptop or desktop PC to reply to my readers’ comments and questions.

    One annoying problem is that the WP Android app doesn’t allow the comment reply box to be moved aside so that I could refer to the original text, as the reply window obscures the background.

    Neither does the app have a “Save as Draft” feature which would be extremely useful for composing long winded replies without automatically publishing them. An alternative solution is to use a Notepad-like app for drafting comments and copying & pasting them to the reply box, but it would be a lot better if the WP app allows drafting comments within the app itself.

    I’ve also tried using various Android browsers to access the WP comment functions, but they’re too slow and too cumbersome compared to PC browsers. As a result, I use the WP app only to check on my visitor statistics and to moderate comments.

    As for the GMail app, I’m disappointed that Google doesn’t pay much attention to its own free app products, including their Chrome browser. There’s no feature to empty the spam folder and the refresh function doesn’t even load the latest conversations without having to refresh a few times.

    While I find that the stock Mail app that HTC provides (which accesses email via POP3/SMTP) gives a better email experience than the GMail app itself, the GMail app can search past archived conversations while the Mail client app cannot.

    Good list…however, I think TweetCaster works just as well on Android as TweetDroyd. Good stuff, though, and informative. I didn’t even think of getting the PayPal app! Thanks.

  • Rinkesh

    Great list Ehsan. Among all, I like HootSuite to be the best one. If they could add more social networks, this would make the life of bloggers much easier.

  • Hamza Sheikh

    hey Ehsan!

    It’s great to hear from you here. You have compiled a great list of applications for the bloggers on Android. However, being a gadget nerd blogger from last 5 years. I feel that there are still many things that are not yet make into your dashboard for the bloggers and Android users 😛

    Yeah! There are lot of apps, especially the multipurpose apps that makes the bloggers work more efficient than ever.

    I mostly spend 75% of my time on my iOS devices, and Android phones, even I am used to write posts right from my phone. 🙂

    BTW, again! You have compiled a way better list than any normal blogger in the tech niche 🙂

  • Ehsan Ullah

    @Ken, When it comes to compare TweetCaster with TwidRoyd, TwidRoyd has some extra great features.

    @Rinkesh, Hootsuit supports 4 social networks which are the top and best ones, so what other social networking sites are you expecting them to add?

  • Ehsan Ullah

    Thanks for stopping by @Hamza, As I said that these aren’t all and there are still a lot of useful apps, that’s where I turn it to you guys to share the app that you used and found useful as a blogger.
