I’ve been an iPad user since day one and loved my experience with Apple’s stellar product. I’d definitely say I’m qualified to talk about the iPad, owning the first-generation iPad and, more recently, the new iPad. In fact, I’ve got all three generations here at my house after making excuses not to sell them as I’ve upgraded each year.

For nearly two years I’ve been an iPad user and, with the arrival of my new iPad, I’ve been trialing it as my primary machine. In this article, I’ll be explaining a bit about my experience and discussing some of the apps I’ve been using.

Venting your frustration or publicising your praise on the internet has become a popular pastime for many people around the world. According to Nielsen’s BlogPulse, at the time of this writing, there are over 161 million public blogs on the internet – with over 62,000 created in just the past twenty-four hours.

That’s a huge number and I would guess that the quantity of iPad owners who are included in those figures are not a minority.

Since its original launch last year, the iPad, through its wide catalogue of applications, has moved from being seen as a purely consumption-based device to one that can be used to create original content. However, the lack of great blogging applications disappointed me, especially since the iPad is the primary tablet and is used as a mobile workstation by many.

The official WordPress application is okay, but it’s not amazing. And the alternatives aren’t that great either, even if they do come with a price tag. I don’t think it’s the iPad’s fault, I rather like the touch keyboard and have become used to it in my year of use. It’s just difficult to understand why I can’t create real, rich blog posts from my tablet…

Enter Blogsy!
