Best Blogging Apps For iPad

Blogging apps for iPad

iPad is one of the most amazing work done by Steve jobs and if you are a Blogger, with amazing collection of apps, this could be your favorite gadget.

Things just got better with new blogging applications you can play with in your sleek Apple iPad. Just as the tablet PC industry is becoming livelier and healthier with the introduction of new models from different powerhouse brands like Amazon and Toshiba, Apple is confident that it can keep it’s lion share of the market by keeping users busy with more and more useful iPad applications.

Blogging is by no means a new thing in the cybersphere, but making it much easier for people to publish their thoughts online via their tablet PCs is definitely a big step towards pushing blogging to greater heights. Let’s see the newest apps that Apple has developed for iPad users who love to blog, blog, blog. Specially, if you like reading with The new iPad, retina display you will find it really worth spending time on.

Useful Blogging apps for iPad

MULTITASK

The blogger is inherently a multitasker. As soon as he learns of a juicy bit of gossip from friends, he logs on to the Internet in the soonest time possible to tell the (online) world about it. But of course he can’t just blog—he also has to be updated on the latest happenings and news.

The good thing about Multitask is that it allows the user to make the most out of the one-application-at-a-time limit of the iPad by letting you do many things at once. It is basically a displaying application that affords the user the capability to check his RSS feeds and Twitter timeline at the same time. The big bonus is that it also incorporates a fully-featured browser, making it possible for you to do three things in the otherwise single-application only environment of the iPad. At only $1, it’s the best bargain for the multitasker.

SPLITBROWSER

Do you find it a problem to use your iPad to surf the Internet because you are forced to use tabbed browsing only but can’t open two windows at a time? This is the perfect solution to help you have more of what you want and need.

With Splitbrowser you can have two web pages open at the same time, just like that. There’s a division bar that allows you to resize pages and use either the portrait or the landscape view. With two windows open, you have double the productivity rate. The best thing about this app is that each window keeps track of the pages you visit, and the last ones you view before you close the app will still be there the next time you go online.

TWEETDECK

This native Twitter app on your iPad may possibly be the most logical thing that Apple has incorporated into their cool tablet PC. Of course every blogger tweets as well, and of course every blogger relies a whole lot on Twitter for their quick fix of fresh news.

This mobile browser was just once available on the iPhone and iPod Touch, but now that it’s on the iPad as well, Twitter may become just that more popular. The app boasts of a multi-account capability plus page views within the app itself. As regards user-friendliness, the buttons have been resized to allow easy tap-input.

WORDPRESS

If you own a Free WordPress.com blog or self hosted WordPress blog, this is one must have Blogging app for iPad user. WordPress is not just one of those blog sites where you open an account and forget that you ever had one. This app is especially useful for personal and professional bloggers alike, allowing them to post pictures and links, moderate comments and create new entries anytime, anywhere. And because this app is absolutely free, hardcore blogging on your tablet PC couldn’t be better, at least for the moment. WordPress has announced that this app is just the first step towards developing a fully-featured application that will allow it to remain king of the market.

Latest version of WordPress app also integrated some cool features like reader and you can check complete WordPress.com stats.

EARLY EDITION

Want the morning news straight on your tablet PC screen? Of course, anything that will enable you to read on your iPad better is an app worth downloading, even if it costs you $5.

That’s why nothing beats an RSS reader that has the look and feel of the real thing. The newspaper layout of Early Edition allows you to check on the latest news without smearing your fingers with black newsprint. You don’t just fetch news round the clock, you also categorize them under familiar headings and save everything in a powerful archive.  Best of all, you can email or copy the link for sharing on your blog or Twitter. I also suggest to check out Zite as personalized feed reader.

THINGS

By far the most expensive app on the list, Things (at $20, it’s already a discount for the iPad) promises you great functionality that will lead to better productivity. If you want a digital organizer that combines amazing features with great ease of use, you can count on this app to deliver.

Its stunning interface allows you to zip through your to-do lists, schedule, notes and projects with ease. If you’re the type of person who has to get tons of things done everyday without fail, this app is a good enough bargain.

EVERNOTE

Keeping track of your everyday memories and tasks can be hard on a device that won’t allow you to run more than one application at a time, but now that Evernote is available on your iPad, you don’t have to forget anything anymore.

Notes, pictures, ideas, recordings and thoughts tend to get lost if you jot them down on your planner or scribble it on a Post It. With a free Evernotes app on your iPad you can collate everything and tag them for future reference. The app has been optimized to make the most out of your touchscreen iPad.

ANALYTICS HD

ANALYTICS HD

Blogging on your iPad can be kind of a bummer if you can’t follow the progress of your blog’s popularity ratings every hour on the hour. Every blogger obsesses with his analytics, and for this reason, Analytics HD was developed.

Google Analytics has made it possible for bloggers to check on their blogs stats and progress charts in a brilliantly simple and efficient user environment. With the number of accurate and up-to-the-minute reports you get, shelling out $6.99 for this app is no big deal. Just imagine: now you have full touchscreen capability for as much as 55 charts at any given time.

READDLE DOCS

Just one of the many things that iPad can’t do is to let you save your files in a flash drive, but Readdle Docs skirts around the issue by providing you with a document viewer, file manager and attachment saver in just one application.

File sharing has never been easier on a device that doesn’t have a USB port, with or without Wi Fi. There’s even a built-in browser that allows you to save stuff directly into your device and easily retrieve and view everything later when you’re offline already.

Well there you have it, if you’re a blogger with an iPad these are the Blogging apps that you need, they will help to save you time and make you Ipad more functional, it may not be the biggest ever but these apps have everything you’ll blog to your heart’s content, if you use some Blogging Apps For iPad that haven’t been mentioned please drop a comment and let us know

The Future of Wireless Charging for Multiple Devices: Magnetic Resonance

Wireless ChargingCurrent wireless charging technology is predominantly inductive, using an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between two objects. This process is inefficient and causes devices to heat up more than they would if charged with traditional cables. Most types of inductive charging also require portable electronics to be placed on a charging pad because the potential distance between the wireless charger and device is minimal. In practice, this isn’t much better than using a cable to charge electronics.

Fujitsu and Wireless Charging 

Researchers at Fujitsu labs have announced that they have successfully used a magnetic resonance system to wirelessly charge multiple gadgets simultaneously over a distance of about six inches. In theory, the technology should be able to charge objects at a distance of over three feet, but this has yet to be proven. What researchers can say for sure is that the system transfers 85% of energy, wasting only 15% in the wireless charging process over the six-inch distance. While this is impressive, the rate of efficiency could change drastically if the distance between charger and device is increased even slightly. Researchers are currently working to resolve any issues with longer charging distances before the technology is released. Fujitsu’s vision is for consumers to be able to place multiple gadgets on a table or other surface within a reasonable distance of a charging coil, allowing each device to charge at its own rate and fill its unique energy capacity.

How Fujitsu’s Magnetic Resonance Works

Fujitsu’s technology involves tuning two coils to the same frequency in order to enable a transfer of energy. A coil and capacitor form the resonator and transfer electricity between the transmitter (wireless charger) and receiver (device). Innovations include a magnetic field analysis simulator, a specialized circuit simulator, and automated system that precisely matches resonance requirements. The magnetic field analysis simulator analyzes the coil model and works with the circuit simulator, which analyzes resonance conditions, to enable quick and accurate wireless charging system design, reducing the total system design time to 1/150th of the current average.

Implications for the Future

The new magnetic resonance technology is on schedule to be incorporated into market products for charging mobile phones and other electronic devices in 2012. Researchers are also exploring the possibilities of using it to charge electric cars and enable wireless energy transfer between circuit boards or computer chips.

Swype : Text Input Technology for Touch Phone

I find typing on QWERTY phones easier and faster than on touch phones that lack the classic tactile feel. But recently, I have been feeling strongly inclined towards the touch phones primarily because of the revolutionary technology called Swype.
Some of you might have been already using it without even knowing that it’s Swype at work. Just like iPhone has been declared a revolution, I would say Swype has every bit of chance to be declared a revolution soon. Okay, but what is it? You want to know, right?

What is Swype?

Swype is a new patented text input mechanism, introduced by Swype Inc., that allows you to input text in a easier and faster way while using the standard QWERTY keyboard layout of your touchscreen phone. In fact, it is so fast that you could possibly achieve typing speed of 40 words or more per minute which is simply phenomenal.

But why Swype?

  • Innovative, faster and easier way to type text using standard QWERTY layout
  • Offers word suggestions for corrections
  • Learns new words automatically
  • Easy switching to regular keyboard
  • Supports foreign languages
  • Inserts spaces automatically
  • 65,000 words database

How Swype Text input works?

In contrast the way we use the QWERTY keyboard in touch phones, Swype allows you to type words without typing or pressing a single key. When using Swype, you simply need to trace a path across the screen keyboard and Swype does the rest. Is it that simple? Yes, it actually is. And you can use your finger or your phone’s stylus whatever your preference maybe.

The moment you trace a path across the keyboard, Swype’s patented algorithm analyzes the path pattern and immediately recognizes the word you intended to type. For example — if you were to type the word “quick”, you simply need to connect its letters by moving your finger over letter ‘q’ through ‘u’ then ‘i’ followed by ‘c’ and finally stopping at the letter ‘k’ on the keyboard; see a graphical representation of the same below.

Swype

At first, this may sound too time consuming but once you get used to it, it would take merely a second or less in fact. Check out a video demonstration below —

Best of all, you don’t need to be accurate, Swype is quite forgiving and understands completely that to err is human 🙂

So next time when you go shopping for a new touch phone, look for Swype support for sure. Till then, happy typing.
