New features in BlogPad Pro version 1.1

I’m delighted to announce we’ve just launched BlogPad Pro version 1.1 which has some great new features as well as some bug fixes.

You can now browse, search and add YouTube videos straight into your WordPress blog posts as well as being able to add video files from your media library on self-hosted blogs. You can read more about how to do this in our tutorial here.

Add video to your WordPress blog with BlogPad Pro

We’ve also added a few extra options in settings, including being able to set a default size for any new images you insert – which should save you lots of time when creating long blog posts. Just set the default width to the maximum size for your WordPress theme and no more cropped or squashed images! You can see our tutorial on this here.

You can now also insert links to different file types which appear in your media library, including Pdf files, Word documents, Excel, PowerPoint and OpenDocument text documents. Just browse to the item in your library and tap ‘Insert link to file’. You can also add links to video files which aren’t embeddable in a web page such as wmv files. 

To update your copy of BlogPad Pro just tap here and select ‘Update’!

Press Release: The most professional WordPress blogging app for iPad is now available

BlogPad Pro – the most professional blogging app for running ALL of your WordPress blogs from your iPad – is NOW available in the Apple App Store

Bedford, UK – November 28th 2012. Available today , the app BlogPad Pro is a beautiful and intuitive blogging app which gives you everything you need to run your WordPress blogs from your iPad:

As a team of avid WordPress bloggers, we felt there was a gap in the market for a professional (and yet easy to use) blogging app for the iPad. Our aim was to create a stable and intuitive app which gives you everything you need to run multiple large (or small!) WordPress blogs on your iPad.

We also wanted to make it easy to blog when you’re offline – like on a plane journey – or when you can’t get connected. So we’ve made a simple 1-click syncing system for updating your blog when you get back online.
We wanted our app to look great, be simple to use and packed with great features so you never need to leave your iPad. There’s nothing more annoying than having to fire up your laptop because an app just doesn’t offer you everything you need!

Features include:

  • Supports WordPress.com and self-hosted WordPress blogs
  • Manage multiple WordPress blogs all in one app, even with different user accounts
  • Offline or airplane mode – save content locally if you don’t have an internet connection to stop you losing work
  • One-click sync to upload all your changes when you go back online
  • WYSIWYG editing: style your posts with a touch of a button. No coding required!
  • AutoSaving of Posts and Pages – never lose your work because of unforeseen issues
  • Conflict Management – never unwillingly overwrite your work (or that of others) when working on a multi-user blog or when changes are made from different devices
  • Write and edit raw html – although with our great WYSIWYG editor you may never want to!
  • Easily find that post or media item you’re looking for with our search and filtering options
  • Check, manage and reply to blog comments on the go
  • Easily add images from your iPad, a url or your WordPress media library

Please visit https://blogpadpro.com/press for a full list of features including videos and screenshots of the app.

BlogPad Pro is now available for £2.99 in the UK and is priced accordingly in other regions. The app is available worldwide in the Apple AppStore.

BlogPad Pro app for iPad was developed by Macroweb Ltd , a web and software development company incorporated in 2004.
