So what if installing third party software on your iPhone may void your warranty. A blogger's got to do what a blogger's got to do, and what could be more enticing than the ability to blog from one's iPhone?
For TypePad, Six Apart's hosted blogging service, mobile blogging is nothing new. Yet with the iPhone craze that has enveloped the nation, it was only a matter of time before an iPhone-optimatized interface became available.
Users can now create and edit posts, manage comments, configure mobile settings for posting photos directly from an iPhone, and view published blogs all with just a few finger taps.
Blogs published through TypePad look great on the iPhone, as can be seen in the screen shots below, thanks in no small part to TypePad’s standards-based publishing engine and designs. From the official TypePad blog:
"We've baked moblogging into TypePad from the very beginning. From integration with Nokia's LifeBlog to our free TypePad Mobile client for Palm OS, Windows Mobile, and Symbian phones, TypePad has been leading the field with excellent mobile blogging tools and services. So when we saw Apple's iPhone in January with its unique browser interface, we knew we'd have to do something special for TypePad".
Mobile web logging is one of the most dynamic areas in content sharing today. The ability to publish content -- text and/or pictures -- to the web from anywhere using just a mobile phone is certainly compelling.
As cell phones become even more ubiquitous and coverage gets better, there are limitless opportunities to post about the annoying guy in line at the bank or see pictures of a stranger's cat. You know, important stuff.
