Android has been gradually invading every space that is even remotely linked to the digital realm. When it comes to blogging, the invasion is altogether relevant and stronger.
Bloggers keep fishing for tools that would make it convenient for them to manage their blogs. In an age where almost everyone seems to be giving in to the App effect, bloggers will vouch for the fact of having access to certain tools that will help them manage their blog by means of their smartphones. An interface that will help bloggers manage their blog from their smartphone is a great asset.
Android apps have been developed by developers for this specific purpose. There is a huge array of such apps for the taking, each having its unique set of features and capabilities:

You can also keep an eye on your blog’s performance by viewing the stats of the blog that have been featured into the app.

With such a huge number of bloggers using this platform for their websites, it is imperative that they are provided a smartphone app that lets them manage their blog from their fingertips at all times and from anywhere.
The WordPress app has many of the same functionalities and features as it would have if it were in the backend (administration) of the website, logged in from a laptop or desktop computer.
It will allow you to edit any piece of content (draft or published) right from your own smartphone, plus along with other features such as checking your stats, comments, and uploading different kinds of media to your website (photos/videos).
