This is one of the most exciting moments in Blogo’s history. Second only to when we first embarked on making our dream a reality.
By now, you’ve probably heard we are going through a huge overhaul of Blogo. You might have even read one of the many posts about what that might mean for you, and all Blogo users.In case you missed it, check out this post we wrote a couple weeks ago, that explains everything.
After weeks of hard work toiling over bug fixes, tweak after tweak, and sleepless night after sleepless night, we’re thrilled to announce that Blogo for iOS is finally available for download!
Here are all the changes, and what you can expect from this major overhaul:
Anywhere, anytime. Use Blogo on all your devices
Blogo for Mac has become an incredible product.As an MVP, it did more than we could ever have imagined and gave us a hint at what was possible. But it was just one piece of a much larger puzzle. Blogo for iOS completes that puzzle for every blogger.
By making Blogo available in any iOS device (iPhones and iPads) we’ve closed the loop. Now, all your content can be automatically synced, anywhere, anytime. And you’ll always have a powerful blogging tool right there in your pocket.
We’ve got you covered, regardless of your device or blogging platform. From small screens of the new iPhone SE, to big screens of your 27-inch iMac, Blogo provides everything you need to write and publish your next story.
Simple, powerful blog publishing
For the past few months, we’ve also been working hard on enhancing Blogo for Mac, striving to replicate the same sleek experience on iOS devices. It’s all connected, so everything should work perfectly together, right?
We have a fully-packed tool. One that offers everything you need to take your blogging workflow to another level. And we cover every step of the blogging process: writing, publishing, and managing. We can even sync with Evernote, to keep your notes and drafts at hand too!
Along with the major overhaul, we’ve also made some changes we know a lot of our users have been requesting. For the first time ever, Blogo now supports Markdown. We’ve added the option to reply Comments, right there in the app. You can add excerpts to your posts, and edit images in our beautiful, new editor.
And, as if it was possible, our interface got a whole lot better too! You will love it. The list goes on and on, with new features being worked on constantly.
I’d loooove to keep writing. As I’m sure you can tell, I could go on for days about how amazing I think Blogo has become.
But in this case, perhaps these images can speak louder than my words.
Free for everyone
For all our design changes and exciting new features, by far the biggest change to Blogo is in the business model. Because after long and hard discussions, we’ve decided to make Blogo free.
Yeah, you read that right! After many meetings and profound discussions, we realized we were missing something. We have a firm belief everyone has a powerful story to share, and our vision has always been to help them do that.
By offering a freemium model, we are following our vision, and allowing ourselves the opportunity to help everyone. Everyone has a good story to share, people just need the right tools to spark their inspiration. Now they have Blogo.
The free subscription will give users access to what we feel is the most advanced blog publishing app on the market.We will also be offering a pro subscription, with access advanced features including multiple blog management, Evernote integration, comment management, custom fields, social mirrors and much, much more.
All users get a 30 day free trial of premium, of course! :)
Oh! And let’s not forget our beloved users from Blogo for Mac
Our community has always been a crucial part of Blogo’s development. For the past couple years, we had the opportunity to actually build a great relationship with a lot of Blogo users.
We’ve gotten to know our users on a personal level. We’ve asked you for feedback, and you’ve provided it in droves. You’ve asked for changes, and we’ve changed as a result.
We have the best community of any startup, in any part of the world. And we really found this out after we started our Slack community.
But we know these changes could have a big impact on our community members. So if you were already a Blogo user before this big change, we will give you 3 years of PRO for free.
It’s our way of showing you how much we appreciate all your support and help since we started this amazing journey together!
