Blogging remains very popular, and Bloapp exists to ensure your blog reaches as many viewers as possible by converting it into an iPhone app. If you’re like most bloggers, you usually post from your PC and are used to a template which is optimized for viewing on a PC. With so many people now using their iPhones and other mobile devices to use the internet for much the same purposes as desktop PC users do, it’s important to ensure your blog is readable across a variety of devices. Bloapp can quickly convert your current blog into a downloadable iPhone app so your fans can keep up to date on your content while on the go.
The best part, of course, is that Bloapp is free. I signed up myself and once you type in your blog URL and the location of its feed, you simply place a meta tag on your site to verify you own it or, alternately, upload an html file to your server. Once you’re verified, all that’s left to do is customize the look of the feed by choosing a template, modifying the color scheme, and uploading any logos you may want to use. Bloapp then provides you with a QR code and a URL you can use to point viewers to your new app. The app is free to download and instantly gives them access to your blog in a more mobile-friendly format.
It’s interesting to see the apps that people are creating now, what with iPhones and Android phones being so ridiculously popular at the moment. It won’t be long before these little devices are essential, possibly even replacing the desktop and maybe even the laptop. Web browsing is now possible from the palm of your hand and it doesn’t mean you need to miss out on your favorite blogs.
