A Professional Tool

The Blog Docs app comes across as a very professional tool and acts as a Rich Text editor for Google Docs, BLOGA, email signatures, and HTML. You can also upload and edit your Open Office, Microsoft Word, HTML, and Rich Text files. Take advantage of the templates to quickly create cover letters, resumes, invoices, newsletters, and plenty more. In order to allow complete flexibility you can blog online obviously or offline and then post later. As you blog you can use your own handwriting, add backgrounds and images, and draw right on top of images. This could mean you mark up images and picture, underline something, circle something, or whatever you want.

Blogging Features and Tools

There are plenty of tools and features built into the Blog Docs app for customers to play around with. One of the most notable ones is the fact you can sync your documents with Google Docs. You can sync your documents so that they're available to you on a number of different devices, you can then view and edit your Google Docs both on your desktop and from the app. You can upload and update documents from other apps, which also means you can open them in other apps. There’s even the ability to export your document to Dropbox so you can use it as a web page.

Go ahead and draw pictures, write out notes, record audio to upload to Google Docs, and even make use of the built-in web browser that the app offers. The list of features in this app is much too long to mention and at times this almost feels like the app's downfall. This offering doesn't always feel user-friendly nor is it easy to navigate.
