iBlogger - expensive tat

And so we come to iBlogger. The most expensive blog client so far, and not particularly impressive. Sure, you can post links, but it lacks ... well, all the niceties of BlogPress. No landscape keyboard is the killer. The links are badly handled too, simply inserting tags into the text.

This could be considered a good thing because all HTML formatting is supported, but trying to type tags that require two shift keys for each punctuation mark for any amount of formatting is painful. Add to this the fact that you have to turn off conversion of linebreaks globally because it can't figure it out and it becomes icky. WYSIWYG is where it's at for mobile blogging.

Looks like I'll be sticking with BlogPress then. I can always dump my brain on the road and update it with links later, I suppose.
