Before the age of mobile devices, blogging was an affair which was mostly done on desktops and laptops.

While it may seem like all this just complicates things for you if you are blogger, there are actually of tools and apps out there which can help you get a lot of things done on your smartphone or tablet (which you can use to actually write a post) With that in mind, we have put together a list of five essential mobile apps you can use to manage your blog successfully.
Since WordPress powers over 26% of all websites online, it is very likely that your blog was built using WordPress as well. WordPress is great because you can easily develop and upgrade the functionality of your blog without having to know how to code. All you have to do in order to change its design or expand its functionality is to install new themes and plugins. Apart from that, it is also packed with features which allow you to optimize your posts for search engines and see how they are doing via built-in stats.

It works whether you are running a website for a assignment writing service UK or an e-commerce business website.
ViralTag should be an essential social media app if you are using social media along with your blog to spread your message, and especially on media-rich platforms, such as Instagram or Pinterest. ViralTag enables you to manage accounts on multiple social media platforms, schedule an unlimited number of posts, recycle your existing content, communicate with other members of your social media team, and view how your posts are performing.

Another great thing about ViralTag is that it allows you to cross post simultaneously to both Instagram and PInterest, provided that you have claimed your account on Pinterest.

Although Google has been pretty tight-lipped about how many websites are using Google Analytics, it is estimated that about 69.5% of Top 10,000 websites use Google Analytics to track how their content is going and to capture certain metrics. Google Analytics is an ideal platform if you are using a desktop or a laptop, but nowadays, people are using their mobile devices to consume content faster than ever, which means you will have to keep up with their activities even on the go.
Fortunately, there is a mobile version of Google Analytics which is very useful in that aspect. This app allows you to view how many people are reading your blog posts, as well as their geographic location, which social media channels are driving the most traffic to your blog, your blog’s bounce rate, average time on site, and the number of sessions, just to name a few. Although there are plenty of other apps which you can use to track analytics data on mobile, this one is by far the most powerful one.
As we have already mentioned earlier, writing content for your blog is just the tip of the iceberg, since blogging is at its most effective when it is used together with other activities, such as social media posting. However, with so many different stuff on your plate, it is very easy to lose track about which action is your priority, and even easier to forget about some of them.
