Squarespace is a great website builder for those of us who don’t have the time to either code our own websites or simply don’t know how. I’ve used it for both my personal blog and my professional site, and I’m largely happy with it. (Once I find time, I’ll be hand coding my own professional site, but that’s not because Squarespace isn’t adequate. It’s because I want to code it when I can find the time, simply for the joy of coding.)
That being said, anybody who uses Squarespace knows that it was a giant pain to post anything to your site from your iPhone or iPad. Unlike CMS like Tumblr or WordPress, Squarespace’s older apps were massively inconvenient. They didn’t allow you to edit any posts that had images, and you couldn’t write in Markdown or do any layout work. With Squarespace Blog, that all changes.

I read a statistic once that said that WordPress powers over 22% of all new websites, worldwide. Wow. That’s a staggering amount of data, and yet the platform that many bloggers know and love is still going strong after years in the business.

Problem is, the WordPress app for the iPad has historically not been very good, turning off quite a few users. But now, we have Poster, an app that promises to make the process of writing and publishing blog posts to your WordPress site much easier. Does it hold up, or is it just another flash in the pan? Let’s discover together. (more…)
We’ve come to the conclusion, as users of the iPad, that the device is second to none for content consumption. The experience of sitting back with a sleek, light tablet in hand, yet being able to access a world of content is something that Apple has touted ever since the iPad launched. There’s a good chance you might be reading this very post on your iPad (I’m writing it on mine).
While the web hosts an incredible selection of content, a lot of it is cluttered in advertising and other stuff you simply don’t care about. When I’m reading an article, the content is what I care about it. Readability is a web service with a fairly new iOS app that puts content in a clean, comfortable reading view.
