6 Apps That Bloggers Shouldn’t Ignore in 2013
Keeping up with blog posts and conversations doesn’t have to become an on-the-side hobby that you do between running errands. Stay up with all your blog duties on-the-go with these blogging apps that you can use on your smartphone.
With the WordPress app, you can easily do as much on your phone as on your computer. Post new blog updates on-the-go on your 4G LTE BlackBerry z10 or other device with this app. Upload photos, manage comments, and edit pages. The app supports WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress sites to accommodate all users. If you don’t have a WordPress blog, download your blog host’s app so that you can post on your blog while away from the computer.
2. AdSense Dashboard
If you’re a blogger who uses AdSense as a way to make some extra cash with your blog, then you can track your income straight from your smartphone with the AdSense Dashboard app. Analyze your page views, clicks, performance, estimated revenue and other vital statistics with the app. Use secure, read-only versions of your data, and open a desktop widget for a quick view at the most important data.
Tracking your viewer statistics is an important part of determining how well you’re succeeding at your blog. With the gAnalytics app, all the information from your Google Analytics account is in the palm of your hand, allowing you to analyze your statistics from anywhere. You can even connect the app with multiple accounts and profiles if you have more than one blog to track. Check out charts and stats on all the following aspects of your blog:
- Page views
- New visitors
- Bounce rate
As a blogger, engaging in conversation with your readers is as important as producing quality content, and the HootSuite app can help you stay connected with all of your major social media sites throughout the day. Manage your blog’s Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ page all in the same place. Schedule tweets, analyze your social media traffic and even track brand mentions.
Evernote is a useful app for organizing every aspect of your life, but when it comes to blogging, it makes jotting down ideas simple. Create your own lists, take photos, clip webpages and save it all as inspiration. Sync your notes with various devices, share your ideas with your fellow blog authors and access your Evernote account from any device to make organizing your blog and brainstorming ideas simpler.
The DropBox app allows you to save all your files in the cloud, sync your projects between devices and access them from any device. This makes it easy to switch between devices and save your research while working on a blog post. For example, start your research on your phone at the coffee shop, save your file on the DropBox app and then finish it up on your computer at home.
Whether you’re just starting a blog or have been blogging for a while, these apps will help you take care of it all while on-the-go.
