Brett Kelly on the pain involved in trying to blog using just an iPad:

Remember, I’m not saying any of this is impossible, just that it’s prohibitively cumbersome and difficult. Pursuing this route is inserting a clunky obstacle in your way when your tools should be extensions of your hand and appropriately fade into the background.

I agree with pretty much everything he says here. The WordPress app for the iPad is the best blogging app out there for WordPress users, but even so I rarely — if ever — use the damned app. I have yet to see a single solution for blogging on the iPad that would make me feel comfortable leaving for a long weekend without my MacBook Air.

My solution: use the web interface for WP after typing up your post in Writer — though this is far from good.
