I downloaded the Edublogs app just last week and tonight I will have a short write up about it.
The app is free, which is always convienient. Set up took me nearly an hour as the app crashed on me numerous times (this could have been due to the terrible internet service I was receiving in the law building at Deakin)
When the app finally registered my blog and I was logged in; I went to write a post until a messaged popped up informing me that to write a blog through the app I needed the upgraded version of EduBlogs to post via the app. This put the free app idea out the window since I do not have the upgraded version. My theory is always why buy something when you can purchase it for free.
With this in mind, the EduBlogs app would not help students using tablets, smartphones and iPods as I’d believe that students would be using the free edition of EduBlogs if being used in the classroom.
If anyone is still interested in the app, click on the picture above and it will link you to the Apple app site.
The link is also here —-> EduBlogs
For those Android users out there, unfortunately there is no Android app as of yet but I did read that they are planning on creating it soon. The link to the post is as follows —-> AppleAppReleased
Very disappointed in the outcome.
