Blogger And iOS Mobile Computer Support

People frequently observe significant differences between products from Apple / Google / Microsoft.

Since all three corporations are separate (and highly competitive), they have their own corporate philosophies and development timelines. Despite all of that, Blogger tries to make their product supportable, across all corporate lines.

Unfortunately, the Blogger service is not always consistently usable, with all browsers - or mobile computer / smart phone apps.

One problem, that not all Blogger blog owners may realise, is that Apple does not submit their product changes to Google, for testing.

With a lack of advance testing, Blogger Engineering cannot react fast enough, to changes in iOS. The Blogger iOS app has long been a source of complaints, in Blogger Help Forum: Get Help with an Issue.

Blogger is rolling out SSL - and this delays other needed changes.

Right now, Blogger is making a major overhaul to their infrastructure, to support the SSL rollout. Simultaneously updating the Blogger app, to support iOS, would not likely be a productive activity.

With the SSL Rollout in process, Blogger suspended iOS app support some time ago. The Blogger app was removed from the Apple Store, several months ago - and this has been a source of various complaints, since.

Owners of iOS based computers need patience.

Apple Phone owners may need to be patient. Blogger Engineering may have to finish the SSL Rollout - hopefully, with support for custom domain publishing - and then rewrite the Blogger app for iOS.

In the mean time, iOS computer owners are suggested to use the Blogger dashboard, in a desktop browser, for maintaining and publishing their blogs. In order of recommendation - they should use Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.



The #Blogger smart phone app for iOS was removed from the Apple Store, some months ago. This was not a popular change - but it was a responsible business decision.

Custom Domain Migration - Managing The Traffic

Your blog depends upon traffic for its success.

Anything that affects the traffic to your blog, such as any change in the URL, affects the success of your blog. Publishing the blog to a custom domain, like renaming the blog, will affect traffic to your blog. The effects of the change will vary from blog to blog, because of the different traffic to every different blog.Followers. People who find your blog because of recommendations by other people.Search engines. Robotic processes which methodically surf your blog, and provide dynamic indexing to people who search for information.Subscribers. People who read your content from their newsfeed reader, such as the dashboard Reading List.Viewers. People who read your content from their browser.No two blogs are the same - and no two blogs will have the same combinations of traffic sources.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
