Blogging is never an easy task, especially for writers who are always on the go.
Smartphones such as the iPhone 5 and even tablets have become one of many blogger’s most common companions when writing away from their PCs.
Therefore, the demand for reliable blogging mobile apps is at an all time high.
When Apple launched its latest smartphone in India on September 2012, the iPhone 5 sold out within 24 hours, according to the Wall Street Journal India. The iPhone 5 has proven to be tough competition for Samsung when it comes to sales.
So far, Apple has more apps available in their stores than Android devices. In fact, there are 585,000 iOS apps available across various stores, compared to Android’s 450,000 apps, based on research.
It also revealed that users spend more time using mobile apps (94 minutes) than web browsing (72 minutes) on their devices. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise to learn that bloggers are now using mobile devices, to write too.
In this article, I’ll present to you the best blogging mobile apps for iPhone 5 users. Make sure you have them with you before you leave your home. 😉
