The purpose of these apps would be to make the job of the blogger easier, improving work and productivity. The list of apps would thus be endless, but here are ten iOS apps that will make your job easier.

#1. Adobe Photoshop Express

Most bloggers used to be worried about the quality of images on their website because there were no reliable apps that could help with that. But with Adobe Photoshop express, the problem is solved.

Apart from providing a standard reading experience, the app has a text-to-speech feature which you can control through your Apple Watch.

It offers an uncluttered reading experience for the user, including unlimited highlights. The main highlight of using this app is that you can always retrieve an article you were reading or researching. You can customize the web page to suit your reading style, even switch to night reading. If you have found some real gems that you’d like to read in the future, then you can save it here.

#3. Awesome Note

It is incorporated with wonderful writing capabilities and has the capability to add photos and drawings, even voice recordings. If you want to make notes while preparing articles, you can fully rely on this app. It acts as a diary where you can record day-to-day activities, create photo albums and even a shopping list.

#6. Idea Organizer

Idea Organizer is another quintessential app that helps people jot down their ideas ‘on paper’ so they can look it up later. Suppose you are having a burger with your friend at MacDonald’s and you had a brainwave idea for your blog. You can take out the Idea Organizer and just note down the idea, either as text or in your own voice. It has a dropbox backup and restore option so you don’t lose your files anymore.

There is an on-screen keyword so you don’t have to carry a physical keyboard. Integrated with auto-text wrap so you can flow the text around the images, as well.

#8. Blogsy

Blogsy has evolved to be one of the most widely used blogging apps for iPad users and though it is not accessible by iPhone users, iPadmini and iPad users can enjoy it to the maximum. The app can be used on all the major blogging platforms like WordPress, Blogger and the like. Additionally, the app supports all the major social media platforms as well.
