We are traveling and I have a travel blog using Blogger. I am using my iPhone because that’s all I have with me. It is extremely difficult, cumbersome and downright frustrating often taking several hours to make a simple post with pictures!! The entire post does not show up so inserting pictures from my phone or google photos doesn’t work well. I have to keep closing blogger and reopening it and sometimes more of the post shows up. When I can get to a computer with Google it is so quick and easy. I know Blogger is a Google product but is there an app or something to make the iPhone more compatible?
I hear ya! Blogging on a phone is painful. What I do is use the email feature to write the post on a phone – a cool advantage is that you can dictate! Here’s an article I wrote about doing that https://geeksontour.com/2016/1…..te-a-blog/
But I still use a computer to post the pictures.
It is possible to add photos using the Blogger.com website on the iPhone using Chrome. If you use Google Photos then it’s just like adding photos using the computer, just on the tiny screen. Did you watch the recent video on adding photos using the computer?
There used to be an app for Blogger on iPhone, but it has disappeared. I do see some alternatives if you search for Blogger in the App store, but I don’t know anything about them.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for the tips. The email works good, I already do that. I installed Chrome on my iPad and will use it on my next post. I did try to edit an existing post and still only the partial log come Up. At least they are warning me on the iPhone:
“The browser we detected is unsupported and may result in unexpected behavior.

Let me know how it goes on the iPad.
I have found one possible alternative, an app called Blogo. I haven’t used it, so can’t vouch. If you try it, report back ok?
