Blog from your iPad with Blogsy!

Yep, you read it right. EasyBlog is now available in the iPad near you, thanks to Blogsy!

We've worked up a special collaboration with Blogsy on possibilities in blogging from your favorite tablet, the iPad. Blogsy is an app for iPad that allows you to post blogs on the go. It is already working for Wordpress and Blogger and this time, we are happy to announce that it works for EasyBlog. You can now start blogging in EasyBlog remotely, wherever you are with Blogsy.

You might want to check out some how-to videos on Blogsy to get the most out of this cool app. Head on to http://blogsyapp.com/ and click on the "How-to Videos" and check out the videos under the Settings menu in there. Feel free to bookmark this page if you need any help in working on Blogsy -- www.blogsyapp.com/how-to.

Now, let's learn how to set up Blogsy for EasyBlog!

In the service setting screen, choose ‘MetaWeblog’ to continue.

NOTE: Do not choose ‘Joomla’ as the API for it only works for Joomla’s articles. EasyBlog uses its own tables therefore the ‘MetaWeblog’ service fulfills it in order to publish blogs to your EasyBlog.

Hi Jan, this integration still works to date. Are you experiencing any issues regarding either EasyBlog or Blogsy?

I would love to win a copy of blogs for my iPad. However, even if I don't win a copy, I am such a fan of EasyBlog, that I will buy it. Also, I intend to promote the iPad app on my site http://planethop.com/blog/, because I think that if my site users are aware of this product, not will it promote more sales of the Blogsy App, it will also promote traffic on my site as well, since so many people use the iPad. I see this as a win, win for both!!

I have blogsy on my iPad 2, and it works very comfortable for me! No nasty things with the browser anymore. If you own a iPad and a blog, really download the Blogsy App!

HI,

Is there a way to also add the additional fields to be set via Blogsy, Like Language, Team blog etc? Currently I don't have these available in Blogsy and I have to go back to back- or front end of EasyBlog to adjust those for each of the articles. (would also be handy for Mars Edit )

THanks,
Luc
