Editors' review

MarsEdit makes blogging easier, letting you ditch clunky browser-based editing in favor of a full-featured, fully Mac-powered desktop editor--an editor that also lets you blog when you're offline. You get a rich editing interface for working with text (including HTML-free formatting tools and cool markup macros that save you from repetitive typing), but what makes MarsEdit really useful is its easy uploading tools, two-way syncing, AppleScript support, tight integration with Flickr, and compatibility with an impressive variety of blog services (including improved support for WordPress tags), text editors, and even photo management software (like iPhoto and Lightroom).

With nice bonus features like autosaving, Technorati tag editing, blog-specific image settings, support for Tumblr, and a speedy Flickr browser, MarsEdit is a great example of indie software done right. It gives you lots of functionality, a professional level of quality, responsive support, and (of course, this being indie software) a modest price tag.

    "Good, but more features needed"

    May 11, 2012   |   By drlake_blcs

    Version: MarsEdit 3.5.1

    Pros

    Easy to use and has short learning curve.

    Cons

    Needs WYSIWYG. Also needs to be able to connect and embed videos from services such as YouTube. Even the MS Live Writer has these features and it is free.

    Summary

    Best program for Blogging in the Mac universe. Hoping for some updates to the program that will take it to the next level.
