How can i make them post directly with the app without login on through web?
All apps are very good I will definitely install all apps in my mobile and will get benefits from it.

What do you recommend for blogging apps on the Mac? I tried Bloggo, and it changed all my tags to categories, which was not fun to remedy. I am test-driving Mars Edit and like it, but it is 39.95, and I can’t help remembering the old days when it was substantially less and did most of the same (I’m old ). There seems to be a wide dearth between free and 40.00. I will pay for Mars Edit if I must, because I need an alternative to the built-in WordPress browser interface. What other good candidates am I missing? Thank you!
