Looking for the best iPhone apps for bloggers that you should install? You’re probably already using multiple apps on your iPhone to assist with blogging. In this article, we have shared our hand-picked top 10 must have iPhone apps for bloggers, WordPress users, and online marketers.
WordPress.com offers beautifully designed apps to manage your WordPress.com as well as self hosted WordPress.org websites. See our guide on the difference between WordPress.com vs WordPress.org for more details.
The app is available for iOS, Android, as well as desktop computers. It allows you to write and edit posts on the go, share photos, get push notifications, and manage comments.
One downside of using the app is that some of its features, like stats, would require you to create a WordPress.com account and install JetPack on your site. However these features are optional, and you can still use the app without using those features.
If you are looking for a killer writing experience on your iPhone, then checkout Ulysses. It is an award winning paid app, and you will love the writing experience it offers.
The app basically gets out of your way when you are writing, allowing you to be more productive even on smaller screen. It is a writing app that works with WordPress and Medium. You can share and open files with Notes, Google Drive, DropBox, and more.
It also comes with intuitive organization for all your writing projects making it easier to stay organized while on the go. Text editing uses markdown syntax allowing you to be able to write freely without constantly tapping small buttons to format or add links.
Want to read all your favorite websites and blogs on the go? Then checkout Feedly. It is the smartest way to subscribe to your favorite websites, read them whenever you want, and on whichever device you are using. Feedly is available for browsers, desktop, iOS, Android, and more.
It is probably the best RSS feed reader on the market. Offering a clean and clear reading experience, intelligent tracking of what you have read, and easier tools to organize your subscriptions.
Your iPhone comes with a great camera and sometimes you may need to edit photos on the go using your iPhone. Unfortunately, out of the box it doesn’t come with advanced image editing tool that can do all the things you want to do. This is where Snapseed comes in.
Created by Google, Snapseed is an advanced photo editing app for mobile devices. It is available for both Android and iPhone, and has some really amazing features like healing brush, edit history, filters, color and light balance, and more.
You’ll be surprised how easy Snapseed makes it to use taps and gestures for advanced editing features. It is a must have app for your iPhone if you regularly share photos from your phone.
Do you sometimes wish that someone could automate several aspects of your blogging and social media? IFTTT is that virtual assistant you’ve been wishing for.
It allows you to automate your social media, blogging, mobile usage, and internet of things.
Basically, you just set conditions for different apps, and when those conditions are matched IFTTT performs the actions you have defined. For example, it can tweet your new articles, share them on Facebook, retweet articles, and lots more.
See our guide on how to automate WordPress and social media with IFTTT for more details.
One of the most important tip you will find in our WordPress security guide is to enable two step verification for your WordPress login screen. Google Authenticator is the app you will need to enable it.
It generates time-sensitive passwords that you will need to enter along with your WordPress password. Since these passwords are generated on your mobile device and only for a short time, hackers will not be able to easily break into your website.
For detailed instructions, see our guide on how to add Google Authenticator 2-step verification in WordPress.
There are identity thieves, malware, and cyber attacks lurking in the dark corners of the internet. Your first line of defense against these threats are your passwords. You should always use unique strong passwords for all your online accounts. Now, the question is how to keep track of all those strong passwords?
You don’t need to. LastPass is a password manager app that works on all browsers, operating systems, and even on your iPhone. It allows you to automatically save and enter passwords. You can also safely share your passwords with co-workers without them being able to look at the password.

Pushbullet is a neat app that allows you to share files between your devices. It works on all operating systems, iPhone, Android, plus all major browsers. This comes in particularly handy when you want to send a file from one device to another without syncing all your files.
It also allows you to view notifications from your phone in your browser or desktop. You can also view and send text messages to your phone from your desktop.
While the default social media apps work just fine for most users, they miss out on many features that you’d need as a blogger, online marketer, or a business owner.
Some of these features include scheduling, social media monitoring, analytics, unified dashboard, collaboration, etc. Hootsuite is probably the most popular app that offers all these features under a beautiful simplified dashboard.
Evernote has been the number one choice among bloggers as their favorite note taking app. It is powerful and intuitive allowing you to take notes, save links, set reminders, and share them across all your devices. You can also share notes with anyone using Evernote or any third party app on your device.
