Blogger is an app built for writers that offers a space to share any thoughts they might have. It works fine for creating blog posts with some text and an image.

A bare-boned approach to blogs

Blogger has a simple interface for writing up a few thoughts on hobbies and interests. If it weren’t for some serious bugs, you’d think it was terrific.

This app is all about throwing your thoughts at the internet in text form. For this, and a few extra pictures, it works great. You might make notes or turn them into mini-blogs on your phone with the smooth interface.

What really works here is the little extra features that make it easy to use. You can save a draft that you haven’t completed and go back to it later. If you’re happy with a blog on the go, you can post it immediately for friends and family to see. You can also add to previous posts that you’ve uploaded, too. There’s also an option to switch between multiple accounts if you’re operating more than one blog at the same time.

An online post isn’t complete without some images. You can add these straight from your gallery, or you can open your camera while in Blogger to quickly add a picture. Your location information is added automatically with each entry. They’re also time-stamped, which has its uses.

Even though some upgrades and redesigns have taken place in recent years, actual bloggers may feel features are missing. A 100-post limit has a strong negative impact on this app. Conveniently, though, if you already have a Gmail account, you can sign into Blogger using your Google username and password.

Where can you run this program?

This application requires Android version 2.1 and later to operate. It’s also available for iOS.

Is there a better alternative?

Yes. Programs like WordPress offer a more modern approach to blogging. They tend to include a heavier set of features and an auto-save function.

Our take

With the increase in popularity of various social media platforms, more people use their online profiles to voice their opinions instead of traditional blogging. The application could use a serious makeover before making a comeback as a relevant option.

Should you download it?

No. If you are looking for a way to share your life experiences, social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram are more sensible choices.
