Google has finally launched an iOS app for Blogger, giving the blog network’s millions of users a simple way to write, manage and publish posts from their iPhones.Blogger Finally Releases an iPhone App

The app, available for iOS users 3.2 and up, is rather straightforward. It allows users to compose and publish blog posts complete with photos and geotagging. It also lets users view and edit their published and draft blog posts. It mimics the simplicity of the Blogger for Android interface, though. Users can also manage multiple blogs from the interface.

While the app works for the iPad, it only works in compatibility mode. Hopefully an iPad app is in the near future.

This is the first official Blogger app for the iPhone. BlogPress created an unofficial app that Blogger endorsed, but an official app has been long overdue. The blogging service, once the world’s largest blogging service, has been overshadowed by WordPress, Tumblr and more lightweight competition. Google recently started investing in an overhaul of the service in an attempt to make Blogger relevant once again.

Google has made over its Blogger product with a new design and editing system in its first major

update to the blogging platform in years.

Users can opt in to Blogger’s new user interface via a pop-up announcement starting Wednesday.

Blogger users will find a look that more closely resembles Google’s current aesthetic, a simplified and more expansive post editor, and a new “Overview” section for monitoring recent traffic and comments.

“We’ve rewritten the entire editing and management experience from scratch so it’s faster and more efficient for you — and easier for us to update and improve over time,” Blogger Product Manager Chang Kim explains.

Blogger, initially developed by Evan Williams and Pyra Labs, was sold to Google in 2003. Once avant garde, the product has stagnated as hipper and faster blogging platforms — think WordPressTumblr and even Twitter(also by Williams) — have taken off.
