New in iBlogger 3

This first release is compatible only with WordPress, but feel free to join the TestFlight group anyway, and tell us your blog type.


  • iBlogger 3 has been completely rebuilt from the ground up in Swift for iOS 13. The all-new product provides better performance, robustness, and security.
  • iBlogger 3 includes a dramatically improved editor.
  • iBlogger works fluidly on iPhone and iPad for all device screen sizes (iOS 13 and higher).
  • supports modern OAuth for secure and convenient authentication with your blog.
  • iBlogger now uses JSON/REST-based protocols for posting to your blog.
  • iBlogger's emitted HTML is now HTML 5 compliant.
  • iBlogger's financial model has been modernized to a free download and a subscription offering via In-App Purchase.


Known Issues

  • This first release of iBlogger 3 doesn't include photo sharing support. We think we can do better than iBlogger 2, so we've tossed out the old design. We'll bring new, improved photo sharing later this year.
  • iBlogger 3.0.1 is compatible with WordPress blogs. If you have another blog type let us know what you're using and we'll put it on our to-do list. If you can set up a test account for us, we'll get to it faster.
  • iBlogger 3 works on iOS 13 and higher. Older versions of iOS are not currently supported.

Blogs: Not dead, yet!

If you're a blogger, you might find this essay, recently shared to YCombinator's Hacker News  from a blog, to be of interest. It's perhaps a little pessimistic, but has some fair observations about the state of affairs in the #blogosphere.  If I could bring one thing back to the internet it would be blogs It's almost impossible now to find a blog that's not on a focused theme because that's what search engines focus on and how websites profit. But you want the opposite, a blog that never tried to focus or even thought about it.  The observations about the role of the only search engine that presently matters, Google, in the state of the blogosphere are worthy of consideration. In the discussion at Hacker News, the author was criticized a bit for saying that Google Blogger was "dead" —which itself seems a pretty fair criticism if not strictly accurate in a pedantic sense. Google basically abandoned Blogger in place years ago. Sure, our own ill

A better sample gitignore file for XCode Cocoa projects on Mac OS X (iPhone, too)

When we switched to git last year (from Subversion) we took a little time and beefed up our ignore file. While working on another project recently, I realized that most of the example .gitignore files for Cocoa/MacOSX/XCode on the web are really not terribly complete, and the results can be very frustrating when you're just getting started with a new repository. Here's a better .gitignore example. Let me know if I left anything out. (I saw a few examples from people who exclude the pattern "profile", but as far as I can tell, that's really not a very good idea. I assume they have a specific use case of some kind which eludes my pondering.) The current version of this file can be found on GitHub: .gitignore for Xcode, Cocoa, Swift, Objective C, Mac OS X, iOS, TV, Watch A better .gitignore for XCode, Cocoa, and Mac OS X git repositories: # Mac OS X Finder and whatnot .DS_Store # Sparkle distribution Private Key (Don't check me in!) dsa_priv.pem # XCode (an
