Test blog upload with multiple photos using Blogpress iphone app

Today is an off and on rainy day so I downloaded some iphone apps to re-tag my flickr account photos.

And downloaded another app to attempt blogging without a computer. And I will add an attached photo to see how that goes. Cheers!

Iphone app - yes we can

Takes an ordinary picture and adds red/white/blue to simulate the Obama Hope poster. I grabbed an older model truck photo that i had taken and thought the result was pleasing. But not really usuable with the word hope or change at the bottom. There didn't seem to be an option for adding your own word.

I could save it or email it but could not upload it nor edit the end result in any way. A "few uses" fun app but not a useful usable app

Blogpress app - review

I decided to give blogging a try again a couple of weeks ago since i can blog with iphone apps. I decided on the Blogpress app after reading reviews from other users. So far though i overall like the ease of use for the app. I do dislike that i cannot determine the end size of a photo that i add to the blog. Only thumbnail size is offered. Various photo apps output various sizes so i wish this one did as well.

What i have done is later gone onto a desktop and adjusted the size in the code. An extra step yes but i do like the fact that i can post to the blog on the fly.

I have also found a way of adding more than one picture to a post. Simply place the curser and add pictures as desired. There are connections for facebook and twitter but i use other apps for them.
