10 Best Android Apps For Bloggers
1. WordPress : The most Famous CMS
Isn’t that obvious this is an app specially useful for those which are using wordpress, either on wordpress.org or on self hosted wordpress. You can view all of your content of the website from this app. WordPress app also support auto save, means if by chance your phone crashes or you closed the app, then your work will not going to be wasted.
From this app you can approve, disapprove and reply to comments. And if you have a multi author blog then you can also check the status of the new post.
Since it sync from the hosted server so you can complete your work anywhere. Like I do when I am out of the reach of my computer I use this to give it a sight and then completed my post when I got home.
It is a little bit complex to write new post in it, like you will not get the above bar and to give heading you have to use the html tags and some other things.
And what I like the most is whenever I got some idea about my post I starts writing about it on this app. Now if there is no internet at that time in your phone it will keep the written data as “Local Draft” and when you connect your phone to internet the Local Draft will be posted to the hosted WordPress.

If you think you are not social enough to use this then forget that thing, cause I am also like that. But beside connecting you with millions of people it will give you your daily dose of news, events, updates, stories etc.

So, to over come that problem I always use this app, i.e. Evernote the best app for taking notes and reminders.
In Evernote you can create as much notes you want, you can sort them with Tags, or with different Diaries. With this app you can also take voice notes. Means just say what is the idea you are having.

9. Pocket : Previously known as Read It Later
How many times it happens to you that you were reading an article and something came up and you have to leave it. After that you got the time but no internet connectivity to read the same article. Well it happens to me many times.
As the previous name suggest which is “Read It Later” means it was meant to save your articles and read them later.
What Pocket does is, it keeps a copy of the article into your phone and when you got the time you can read that article without needing an internet connection.
Although for videos it only keeps their link as they are heavy to download and it got a desktop as well. And all the articles in the app remain sync so if you save the article into your desktop you can read it in your phone as well.

If you are blogging then you must have a facebook page if not read why a facebook page is necessary. So to check out your info of the page and post new content we got Facebook Page Manager.
This is the official app by Facebook to handle your Facebook page directly from your android device.
This app allows admin to post new messages, view insights of the page, boost a post, reply to the incoming messages and much more.
Now you will say that this work can also be done by Buffer then that will be wrong. Since Buffer App can only share content and that’s it, it can’t do any further things.
To do all the above mentioned functions you need to have this app. Which is why it is placed in the 10 Best Android Apps For Bloggers.
