Blogger Gets an Android App

Blogger, the Google-owned blogging platform, announced today that it finally has an Android app. The funny part, of course, is that Android is Google’s smartphone platform and Blogger has had an iPhone app since September 2009.

That said, Google loyalists rejoice! You can now update your Google-powered blog on your Google-powered Android phone!

“We are excited to announce our first version of the Blogger Android App,” writes Vinay Sekhri, technical lead at Google. “Using the app you can easily compose a post, attach a photo that you just took with your phone, and either save it as a local draft for later or immediately publish it to your blog.”

The app can handle multiple accounts, if you’re one of those with multiple online identities, gives you the ability to preview your posts while on the go.

Everything beyond that looks pretty standard – quickly post text and pictures to your Blogger blog using your phone, view your content, share your stored photos and even share you location.

The best part, however, might be the platform integration. By installing the Blogger app on your Android device, it becomes one of the default sharing options, alongside Picasa, Gmail, and others. Whenever you come across a photo in your gallery or on a website, you can share directly to blogger from the sharing menu.

The Blogger app is available in the Android Market. On another note, isn’t it nice that we can just give you a link to that Android app and not make you scan a QR code and check out the details on your phone? And, if you click on that link in your Android phone, it will take you to the Android Market app, not the website.
