Top 10 Must Have iPhone Apps for Bloggers


The web is going mobile and it is going faster than anyone can think. Majority of the bloggers are now using their iPhone or similar style phones to jot down ideas, write entire posts, stay connected and so much more.

Pretty good list of apps including Twitterrific, Evernote, Air Sharing and OmniFocus. The app at the number two spot, ShapeWriter, sounds pretty interesting:

ShapeWriter is a revolutionary text input technology that enables you to enter text into the iPhone by tracing word shapes rather than typing letters. Each shape traced on the soft keyboard with your finger is recognized as a word. Error correction is fast and easy.
