Bloggers and pro-bloggers are no exception. It’s highly likely to have at least one android device for any blogger who calls him/her a blogging professional. Blogging app choices for Android are fairly limited if compared to desktop counterparts. However if used in a proper combination, an android device can be proved nearly as useful as web/desktop apps are. This awesome article features 10 awesome Android apps which can be used to make your blogging life easier and even more automated. In short, this list conveys almost everything a pro-blogger will ever need while writing a blog post.

0. Official applications

official android applications for blogger wordpress tumblr

Official applications are the first choice if one is looking for a full-featured tool for a platform specific blog. WordPress/WordPress.com, Blogger, Tumblr – all major blogging platforms offer official android apps for casual writing and editing. All these vary in both features and user interface but are similarly useful in doing on the go blogging.

Some applications like WordPress App for android, offer real time statistics, visual editing and one-touch media-upload. While others, like Blogger app for android, are just deemed to be editors.

1. Jotterpad Writer

jotterpad iconJotterpad is an exceptionally brilliant writing tool for all kind of writers, including bloggers. With custom font and markdown support, this simple android has all writing features you’ll ask in an android app. For proof-reading it supports researching words & phrases using trusted web-dictionaries. Not just this, you can edit and save your files both online (using Dropbox)  & offline (to your device memory). I use Jotterpad to plan my articles and stories by writing small snippets before moving to Evernote or Google Docs for rigorous editing.

Jotterpad is free to download and use for basic editing. But by using a $5.00 in-app purchase you can unlock more features in creative mode including custom fonts & .docx export.
