More on Palm blogging clients

A while back I wrote a post about blogging clients for Palm devices. Since then, I’ve had a chance to use those three tools and learn a bit more. Below you will find a comparison chart of the Palm blogging clients I’m looking at. I put in the features I thought were important, but if you are interested in others, please let me know. And, of course, if there’s a palm bloggin client I’ve not listed here, please let me know about it!

So far, I like Vagablogger for it’s ability to post a draft – which is nice when I want to capture an idea, and get it on the site so I can edit it further. But, mo:Blog is probably better for truly Palm-based blogging as you can keep multiple posts on the Palm, and can also have multiple accounts. Hblogger is alone in the ability to store past posts, but it doesn’t yet support subject lines, although they say they will be adding features in the coming months.

I haven’t had any use for the image uploading capabilities yet, so they remain untested.

One last note: With regard to the blog compatibility, I’m using the statements by the authors. In reality, all will post to my WordPress blog.

  1. I recall that I did have that problem, and as I remember I had to make sure that I had the path and file name correct. In particular, make sure you have the .php on the end of xmlrpc – the actual file name is xmlrpc.php

    I hope this helps!
