Mobile Apps for Bloggers Part II

So after we reviewed the best known apps, it's time to move on to the less-known, yet still useful apps. All available for iOS and Android, unless stated otherwise.


Mobile Apps for Bloggers Part II

1. Google Analytics - How did I forget about this one last time?... I use it all the time! All of your blog's statistics available anytime anywhere.

2. Klout - Klout is a website that ranks your social media influence. Why would you need it? Well, that's a good question... If you want to make some money out of your blog, you'll soon find out that many brands will check your Klout score before deciding if they want to work with you. Currently only available on iOS. Let's hope Android users will have their own version soon.

3. Sverve - This is also a website that ranks you by your influence. Here you choose 5 areas of influence, add tips and articles from all over the WWW and get your score. Some brands offer campaigns for bloggers on the website, so you can try making some money out of it as well. Also available for iOS only...

4. BlogGo - Dana, a reader of The Crafeteria, commented on the Apps for Bloggers Part I with a link to an app that she created for Blogger users. I already told you about my disappointment with the official Blogger app, so I was really happy to hear about this app. Unfortunately, this app, too, is currently only available for iOS. I really hope Dana is working on an Android version! Btw, Stephanie Stoll also commented on the last post, saying she prefers to just use her Safari for that. Hmmmm... How come I didn't think of that?... :)

5. Photoshop - A light (and free!) version for the famous photo editor. You can fix your photos and then share them. Adobe also have other (paid) versions.

6. Evernote - I admit, I didn't understand what all the buzz was about. I mean, come on, an app to save your notes and sets reminders? We've seen hundreds of those! But when you're wrong, you're wrong. I gave it a try and fell for it. It's a very useful and fun app.

7. Photobucket - The known image hosting site in the mobile version. You can upload images from your mobile and they will be available for you on you desktop as well. Simple and convenient.

8. Paypal - So you worked hard and you're making some money now? Now is the time to download the Paypal mobile app and manage your account no matter where you are (as long as your internet connection is working, that is :) )

9. Are My Sites Up - This app is more suitable for those who own more than one website. The idea is simple – YOU should be the first one to know in case your site is down. It's a paid app (different plans available), but important to those who need their sites up and running all the time.

  2. Awesome. To be honest I didn't even know you could get analytics on your ipad as an app. Thanks for sharing. I haven't heard of a few of them either so will check them out. I recently started Klout and have turned down 2 perks nothing I was remotely interested in. Great info!

  3. Great information, Tal! Sometimes in the sea of apps, it's hard to determine which ones are really valuable.

    Thanks!
