There are a number of apps out there that can help simplify the process of writing a WordPress blog — or even just make it a more eye-pleasing experience.
Right now I’m writing this using PixelPumper. It’s (currently) free in the Mac App store and features a simple, if a little quirky, interface for writing and publishing your WordPress articles. Usually I’d login to the backend and type away in my browser but I have to say I’m enjoying this standalone writing experience (if only to going elsewhere in the backend and tinkering!). At this price it’s certainly worth giving it a go.
Here’s some other options I’ve come across while looking for something to use today (apologies Windows users, these are Apple only, as that’s what I use at home and work):
BlogEasy (Mac, IOS) – a simple but what looks like a well put together set of apps.
Marsedit (Mac)– the grandaddy of blogging desktop apps. Pricey too, but has a lot of great reviews and functionality.
Byword (Mac, IOS) – this looks fantastic but I was put off by having to pay more (in app purchase) in order to publish my posts.
