FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

illumineX delivers iBlogger for iPhone and iPod Touch

illumineX, inc., announced today the immediate availability of iBlogger, which brings real mobile blogging to iPhone for the first time. iBlogger works with nearly any blog, including WordPress, TypePad, MovableType and many others, giving users the ability to quickly blog from anywhere, any time.

iBlogger is compatible with the most popular blog engines, including:

  • Blojsom
  • Drupal
  • ExpressionEngine
  • MovableType
  • TypePad
  • WordPress

Bloggers can easily take a picture, add their thoughts, and quickly add tags, categories, and a Google Maps link to their current mobile blogging location.

iBlogger is based on ecto, the award-winning blogging application for the Mac, which illumineX acquired this spring. "We didn't just want to build a blogging application for iPhone, we wanted to build the best blogging application for iPhone. ecto, the most widely used blogging application on the Mac, is the heart of iBlogger, and it purrs like a V8 motor." said Gary W. Longsine, illumineX CEO.

iBlogger is available today from the iPhone App Store.
