    Best Blogging Apps For Mac Users: 2018 Edition

    Best Blogging Apps For Mac Users: 2018 Edition

    I’m a huge fan of desktop tools that can help me in blogging and increase my productivity.

    I prefer desktop tools over online because with desktop tools, I can work without the internet. Working without the internet is especially useful because of how distracted I get when I try to write online. I end up opening at least 10-15 tabs and forgetting that I’m supposed to be writing!

    If you also have the same condition as me, I suggest you start using software that can let you work offline. I know it’s hard to unplug from the internet, but if you do it once, you will notice the increased productivity that comes with this.

    You will be able to do much more work in much less time.

    I have compiled this list of the best blogging apps for Mac. These are all apps I currently use and you should also consider using them to increase your productivity.

    (Note: Not all of them work offline…)

    Best Blogging Software for Mac OS

    Desk for Desktop Publishing-

    desk Mac writing app

    The very first thing that I like about Desk is it’s a Mac app for writers.

    I first tried Desk recently and I was surprised by all the features it offered.

    I particularly love the feature that allows you to save the draft into the iCloud drive. From the iCloud, you can edit your draft from your iPhone or iPad. Desk integrates with all the major blogging platform such as WordPress, BlogSpot, Tumblr, and Typepad (to name a few).

    This is one writing and blogging app that I highly recommend to you and for any other writer/blogger on Mac OS.

    Download Desk from App store ($19.99)

    Blogo

    Blogo Blogging App for Mac

    If you are in search of an alternative to Open Live Writer or Desk App for Mac, you should go ahead and get this little beast.

    This is one app you will love if you are blogging on the WordPress platform. The current version supports only WordPress, but the Blogo team promised to bring Tumblr and BlogSpot support soon.

    moderate WordPress comments desktop

    With Blogo, you can write offline and publish a post directly from your desktop. Use Blogo on your Mac, iPhone or iPad & it all syncs up perfectly. You can also add images, assign a featured image, and live preview your post before publishing.

    • Download Blogo from Mac App store
    • Download Blogo for iPhone & iPad (Free)

    Snag It

     

    Taking screenshots is part of our day to day blogging work and we need to edit the image and resize it before adding it to our blog post.

    Snag It is an image editing tool that I have been using for last two years. This is a complete Mac image editing app that will take care of all your image needs. This is a premium tool, but you can download it for free for 30 days.

    Once you start using the Snag It app, you will be hooked.

    Check out the above video to learn how I use Snag It.

    Download Snag It!

    ImageOptim

    Imageoptim Mac Image Compressor

    A good post is incomplete without a good image. But before you add an image to your post, you need to compress it so that the image isn’t so large.

    The smaller the size of the image, the faster your blog post will load. In the past, I have made the mistake of not optimizing my images, and they were as big as 1MB. Imagine if a post takes more than 10 seconds to load, would you wait around that long? Probably not.

    With the internet world moving to smartphones, the goal is to make blogs load as fast as possible. Optimization of images is crucial in page load speed.

    ImageOptim is a free image compression tool for Mac, and I have already talked about it earlier.

    This lightweight app will help you optimize all of your images. Simply drag and drop the image on the ImageOptim workspace and it will do the compression automatically. This is a free app, and you can download it right now.

    Download ImageOptim

    Camtasia

    Camtasia Mac Video Blogging app

    Video blogging is now a main-stream part of blogging, and it’s important for you to create videos for your blog.

    If you are doing a white-board kind of video, you can use your DSLR camera or even your Smartphone camera. But if you want to do a video like the one I have embedded above (Screencasts), you need a video app that will let you capture, edit, and publish your screencast videos.

    Camtasia is the best available video app for Mac, which every blogger and internet marketer should use. Again, this is a paid tool, but you can download it for free and try it for 30 days.

    This is a seriously must-have Mac app for video bloggers. 

    Download Camtasia for free

    Mac FTP tool (CyberDuck) + (FileZilla)

    CyberDuck Mac FTP App

    Being a blogger, you must have your own server where your website is hosted on. Chances are you will need to login to your FTP server at times to make changes.

    It’s important that you have some kind of FTP software. There are various FTP apps for Mac, and I will suggest two of them:

    1. Cyberduck
    2. FileZilla

    You can use either of these FTP tools and both work great.

    They are very lightweight and designed for efficiency. You can save your FTP login info within the tool for an even greater increase in productivity.

    I personally prefer Cyberduck, but if you moved from Windows to Mac and have used FileZilla before, you will probably like using the same tool now.

    Download CyberDuck || Download FileZilla

    Integrity

    integrity broken link app

    This app is more like an SEO toolkit for your Mac OS.

    It scans all the links of your blog and shows you which links are broken.

    The best part is that it works with any blogging platform. If you are on WordPress, you can always use a broken link checker, but if you have a huge site, the broken link checker might end up freezing your hosting.

    This is one reason I started using Integrity. You can read this tutorial to learn how to use integrity. It’s a free app, and you can download it for free from the Mac App store.

    Download Integrity

    WordPress app for Mac

    WordPress mac app

    WordPress launched an official Mac app that works for WordPress.com blogs or self-hosted WordPress blogs using the Jetpack plugin.

    WordPress for desktops will soon come to Windows & other operating systems. You can download the Mac version for free from here.

    Here is a quick list of other Mac apps that I use for everyday blogging:

    • Gramblr (For scheduling on Instagram)
    • Evernote (For taking notes)
    • Slack (For connecting with my team)
    • Flux (Warm up the screen display at night. Highly recommended)
    • Versions (To manage my WordPress plugins uploaded on Github repo)
    • Mamp (For installing local version of WordPress on Mac)
    • Flycut (Free & handy clipboard manager)
    • Adobe Photoshop Light Room (For editing images for a seminar or meeting)
    • MPEG Streamclip: (Free Mac app to compress video files. I will do a tutorial in the coming days.)

    The above list provides must-have blogging apps for your Mac. 

    If you are using any other blogging apps on your Mac OS which are helping you with your blogging, I would love to know about them.  Share you tips with me in the comments.

    If you like this list, share it with others on Facebook and Twitter.

    I would recommend you to try Desk (https://www.shoutmeloud.com/recommended/Desk/) This is awesome. You would fall in love with writing again after using it.

  • Thanks for the list, Harsh!

    Just a quick feedback on Blogo. I purchased Blogo and it was ok to start with. But I started having problems once the number of blogs and number of sites started increasing (I have 5 sites with an average of 30 posts in each).

    I wrote to the customer care. They are responsive, but are unable to solve the problem. I had recommended this earlier to a friend, and he also seems to have the same issue on his mac.

    Last week, I had typed a 1000 word blog and the app crashed and restarted again. I assumed it has saved my work. Then it said there is a conflict between the local version and the wordpress version. Assuming that the local must be recent, I chose the local version, only to find that I had lost all my content! Very annoying.

    But having said that, Blogo is a great piece of software, I just wish they sort out these bugs.

    Thought of giving this info to help the readers of this blog. Just about to try Desk. Lets hope that works out.

  • Hi, thanks for this post. Do you have anything to recommend for blogging offline with iPad? I usually prepare draft of my posts online, but then I keep them to be updated in a second moment (on a plane, normally). It would be great if you or anyone else here could give me her feedback. Thanks!

  • If people are looking for mainly an editor and then copy/pasting to publish, I strongly suggest Ulysses for Mac and iOS. Currently for iPad, they’re releasing the iPhone app in a few months. I’ve been using the beta for months now and it’s great. It can publish to Medium, but not WordPress or Tumblr.

  • Awesome Harsh. Happy to know about these useful apps. I was searching longer to find the best app for my ipad to manage blog writing time. And now i believe desk and blogo will satisfy me. Thanks for sharing.

  • The article needs to be updated regarding BLOGO.

    The version that’s currently available in the Mac Store (as of May 5, 2017) includes support for Blogger/Blogspot, Medium and WordPress.

    I was looking for something to run on my Mac as a replacement to Open Live Writer, the program I’d normally used on my Windows laptop that died recently.

    I wish is was WYSIWYG. But, that fact you can preview your entry at the click of a button is good enough for me. (Live Writer used a template feature where the template being used at Blogspot was downloaded to your computer and so you saw how it would look immediately). I also wish they had a way of promoting to social media directly. But, I suppose that can be added in the future. Perhaps in the Pro version?

    I created a couple of entries immediately with no issues.

  • Desk sounds very promising. You note above: “From the iCloud, you can edit your draft from your iPhone or iPad.” This would be an essential feature for me, but Desk’s own support staff seemed to indicate that this was actually not possible, since they do not have a companion app (like WordPress does, for example, although it is far from ideal).
    Are you able to edit posts on iOS devices? If so, how? Thank you for this article!

  • Much obliged for the rundown, Harsh!

    Only a speedy criticism on Blogo. I bought Blogo and it was alright to begin with. Be that as it may, I began having issues once the quantity of web journals and number of destinations began expanding (I have 5 locales with a normal of 30 posts in each).

    I kept in touch with the client mind. They are responsive, however can’t take care of the issue. I had prescribed this before to a companion, and he likewise appears to have a similar issue on his macintosh.

    A week ago, I had written a 1000 word blog and the application smashed and restarted once more. I expected it has spared my work. At that point it said there is a contention between the neighborhood rendition and the wordpress adaptation. Accepting that the nearby should be late, I picked the neighborhood adaptation, just to find that I had lost all my substance! Extremely irritating.

    Be that as it may, having said that, Blogo is an incredible bit of programming, I simply wish they deal with these bugs.

    Thought of giving this information to help the perusers of this blog. Pretty much to attempt Desk. Lets trust that works out.

  • Hi, thanks for this post. Do you have anything to recommend for blogging offline with iPad? I usually prepare draft of my posts online, but then I keep them to be updated in a second moment (on a plane, normally). It would be great if you or anyone else here could give me her feedback. Thanks!

  • BLOGO has an iOS version (iPad, iPhone). Haven’t used it myself, and I’m new to the OSX version, so can’t give any real feedback. But, it definitely looks promising.

  • If people are looking for mainly an editor and then copy/pasting to publish, I strongly suggest Ulysses for Mac and iOS. Currently for iPad, they’re releasing the iPhone app in a few months. I’ve been using the beta for months now and it’s great. It can publish to Medium, but not WordPress or Tumblr.

  • A very interesting post which helps bloggers in their daily lives.
    I am going to give a try to img optim to compress my images.
    I would also recommend Grammarly.
    It’s a great tool which helps you to correct your grammar before you post anything.

    It all depends upon your writing style. When I started online, I found WordPress editor to be little new for my writing taste & I started using Windows live writer. It definitely helped me to write better since I could focus only on writing & nothing else. If you ask my suggestion, start using desktop blog editor like Desk or Blogo from day one. It would definitely help in many ways.

  • The article needs to be updated regarding BLOGO.

    The version that’s currently available in the Mac Store (as of May 5, 2017) includes support for Blogger/Blogspot, Medium and WordPress.

    I was looking for something to run on my Mac as a replacement to Open Live Writer, the program I’d normally used on my Windows laptop that died recently.

    I wish is was WYSIWYG. But, that fact you can preview your entry at the click of a button is good enough for me. (Live Writer used a template feature where the template being used at Blogspot was downloaded to your computer and so you saw how it would look immediately). I also wish they had a way of promoting to social media directly. But, I suppose that can be added in the future. Perhaps in the Pro version?

    I created a couple of entries immediately with no issues.

  • Desk sounds very promising. You note above: “From the iCloud, you can edit your draft from your iPhone or iPad.” This would be an essential feature for me, but Desk’s own support staff seemed to indicate that this was actually not possible, since they do not have a companion app (like WordPress does, for example, although it is far from ideal).
    Are you able to edit posts on iOS devices? If so, how? Thank you for this article!

  • Much obliged for the rundown, Harsh!

    Only a speedy criticism on Blogo. I bought Blogo and it was alright to begin with. Be that as it may, I began having issues once the quantity of web journals and number of destinations began expanding (I have 5 locales with a normal of 30 posts in each).

    I kept in touch with the client mind. They are responsive, however can’t take care of the issue. I had prescribed this before to a companion, and he likewise appears to have a similar issue on his macintosh.

    A week ago, I had written a 1000 word blog and the application smashed and restarted once more. I expected it has spared my work. At that point it said there is a contention between the neighborhood rendition and the wordpress adaptation. Accepting that the nearby should be late, I picked the neighborhood adaptation, just to find that I had lost all my substance! Extremely irritating.

    Be that as it may, having said that, Blogo is an incredible bit of programming, I simply wish they deal with these bugs.

    Thought of giving this information to help the perusers of this blog. Pretty much to attempt Desk. Lets trust that works out.

  • After weeks of looking for a better app for editing pictures on my MAC, I finally got one here. I hope the Snag It can also allow importing of other images like icons to be added on the main image.
