Truth be told, though hard to believe, there are tons of bloggers out there who enjoy blogging with their smart phones, whilst others make their smart phones a sidekick to their laptops. Not withstanding, the android apps below will be of great use to both parties.
I’ve previously shared a simple post detailing recommended android applications for bloggers, today, I will be sharing a few more important android applications every blogger should have on their smart phones. (The 2017 Version!)
They are all Free to Use!
1. Blogging Apps
The most important android app a blogger should have on their smart phone is a blog posting application. WordPress and blogger and other major blog hosts have their official apps on playstore but I will be list alternatives to blogger app because its not really cool and user friendly.
Below are some cool alternative to blogger.
The best of the rest to me. You can edit your post in both HTML and simple texts, has simple implementation for some codes
Very Simple and lightweight, gives you simple symbols that works in your posts. Though I wish we didn’t have to write our posts directly with HTML codes.
A unique feature is that, you can change the color of your write up and schedule posts. Though this app is nice, the pictures uploaded to your blog via blogaway is somehow not recognised by fb when sharing your link.
2. Photo Editing Apps
It’s nothing new that you need outstanding pictures for your blog posts and to do that, you would definitely need a photo editor to customize and beautify your pictures for the best result. Below is the most recommended photo editors.
This is surely the best android photo editor you can ever come across, at least for now. It is an all in one application. I’m a big fan of PicsArt and it’s been an important part of my blogging journey as it helps me edit my pictures. All you need is some basic knowledge of how the app works. Read more about PicsArt
This comes in handy if you’d rather have something simple and an app to enable write on your photos alone.
This application will come in handy for bloggers who just need beautiful filters on their pictures… There lots of filters that can transform your pictures to beautiful, classic and chic pictures. Some filters are paid.
3. Dictionary and Thesaurus
What’s a smart phone without a dictionary app? Every learned individual needs to have a dictionary on their phones. Moreover, you need it while writing and surfing the web. We come across new words every day!
Thesaurus is also useful for get words antonyms and synonyms.
Some Dictionary and Thesaurus apps include
~ Offline English Dictionary
~ Merriam Webster Dictionary
~ Offline Thesaurus Dictionary
~ Webster’s Thesaurus Dictionary.
It’s really a pal. So I never knew there was something this cool in playstore until I made a simple search and there it was waiting to be downloaded. I wouldn’t call it perfect or 100% reliable but I bet it will find the error you wouldn’t even notice. This application checks for spelling, grammar as well as double word spacing.
5. Keyword Research Tool
You can’t deny the fact that you actually need the right keywords for your blog post. Whilst there are premium keyword researching tools, a developer have been kind enough to create a such tool, totally perfect for beginners.
6. Schedulers and Multi-posters
Well, I couldn’t find a better Title for this. (You can help me all the same). When I say schedulers and multi-posters, I actually meant applications that let you schedule posts and images to your social media pages… Such applications are extremely handy and Slightly important when it comes to bring traffic to older and ignored posts on your blog
Below are the popular and Recommended applications
This app is highly recommended for entertainment, news and political bloggers who would want to stay up to date. As the name implies, this app shows the latest trends online at specific geographic locations which to me is just perfect!
Pixabay has the largest database of completely free to use pictures. The tool was introduced in this post alongside other sites with free pictures. Good thing they created an android app for their site as this will make finding images even simpler.
9. URL Shortener
If you often shorten long and spammy looking URLs, then you will find this app very handy. The application shortens your URLs to the official google URL shortener goo.gl. I love this application because all you need to do is copy, paste and click on shorten! Apart from shortening your links, you also star important links and see each Link’s click stats.
Adverts is the official Facebook ads app. If you create and run Facebook ads, I bet you’d need this application for easy access.
11. Writer Plus
This is simply an application for writing. The one feature I love about it is the fact that you can undo and redo actions, in case you make mistakes. This application also count your words as you write. So, what’s not to love about writerP? Its simple and classic!
This is now the one of the most efficient auto post tool. You have the leverage to auto post your new blog posts/images to Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Reddit, Tumblr and more. This application make ms the features easy to access.
13. Video and Picture Watermakers
Are you one among a thousand persons who create pictures or videos for their blog posts and wouldn’t want them used by someone else without getting due credits? Well, You might want reconsider not leaving your pictures/videos open to the public preys by using any of the android applications below.
b) Add Watermark
Pinterest is a very cool application of its main web page… You need it on your phone to regularly draw traffic by pining imaged
Quora is one of the best application when it comes to getting new post ideas because, every minute new problem and question surfaces. Apart from giving you post ideas, you get a chance to promote your blog posts by answering relevant answers, then leaving a link to your blog post.
This application is specially recommended for bloggers using WordPress with an annoying media upload limit… You can use AndFTP to upload your files to your wordpress blog directly with your android phone…
17. HTML, XHTML, XML Code Editors
You’ll need this application if you’d love to edit your blog theme. All you have to do is download the XML file, open with an editor and work on it. There are lots of code editors on play store, but I make use of quickedit, not the best if them all, but it’s definitely useful and handy.
Quoda is also a handy code editor fid android phone users.
18. Screen recoders
Perfect for tutorial bloggers.
Some screen recorders include;
~ Du Recorder

This application takes a full screenshot of virtually anything on your smartphone. Though most smartphones have inbuilt screenshot takers, apowersoft can serve as a more advanced counterpart because you can draw, crop, highlight, edit and write on screenshots taken.
