"It's not bad while it's free"

August 08, 2010  |  By Otty6

 |  Version: iBlog 2.0 RC3

Pros

Simple to set up with basic knowledge

Cons

No real guidance to use; lots of trial and error and fishing about for features. RSS Feed creator doesn't work. Still trying to figure out.

Summary

It's good while it's free. Does the basics. Customization requires a little programming knowledge. I doubt I will get more from using the paid version (£20) so in two minds to continue but if you're not looking for anything fancy, this is the ticket.

Updated on Feb 12, 2013

Sadly I did later pay for full version - against my better judgement. It was a waste of time and money. What was worse, was that when I changed blog platform to Wordpress, I wasn't able to transfer content to Wordpress or any other blog platforms/hosts that I searched out. NOT AT ALL IMPRESSED.

"iBlog is pretty good. I like it a lot."

September 06, 2006  |  By adsrw

 |  Version: iBlog 1.3.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been using iBlog for almost 3 years as a daily journal writing tool with no problems and when I had a question, the developer was quick to respond and solved my question.
The version I've been using was free version with a .Mac subscription back in summer 2003.
This version is pretty good and can handle large database of blogs and I love that it can search the entire database, years of notes and find exactly what I was looking for!
I can honestly say that iBlog has been so good in my experience that
I bought it even though I did not have to.

"Good app..."

November 07, 2005  |  By plj_dotmac

 |  Version: iBlog 1.4.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been using iBlog for some years now and cannot at all recognize the negative criticism seen in some of the reviews below. Has anyone of you ever used the application? It is so easy to get started and going and the end result are great. Sure I have had some wishes for the further development and still have, but the overall rating of it is better than average. I have tried e.g. Wordpress and no that does not do it for me - way too complicated. It might be free but it isnâ??t close to the easiness of iBlog. Iâ??m blogging several times a week and have done so with iBlog since 2003 and I have not seen a none web-based app yet that can do the same as well as this.

"IBolg Support and Overall impressions"

June 29, 2005  |  By degates

 |  Version: iBlog 1.4.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been using Iblog for a couple of years now and I have always found their customer support excellent (quality of help and promptness) when I have encountered issues. I don't understand some other comments about poor support, my experiences have only been postive.

"Progress... Finally"

June 27, 2005  |  By Mackidockie

 |  Version: iBlog 1.4.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Conceptually, there's nothing like iBlog. The features are great. But, it was like the bad little girl: when she was good, she was very good; but when she was bad, she was horrid.

Previous versions were buggy, and the layouts were flawed. Reporting bugs to Lifli Software seemed futile, and responses from the developer were almost nonexistent. Updates were infrequent and inadequate.

The criticism still stands, but version 1.4.5 is SO much better than its predecessors. Hopefully, Lifli Software is on a roll!

"Good support"

May 22, 2005  |  By tgilson_dotmac

 |  Version: iBlog 1.4.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've been using iBlog a good while at Thinking Christian, and I've been very satisfied with the ease of use. I had a recent publishing problem that the developers solved within 24 hours, over the weekend. There's a strange formatting issue that recently appeared, and they're also working to solve that in the next update. I'm satisfied with iBlog.

"Do Not get this \"upgrade\""

April 16, 2005  |  By DerSpeck

 |  Version: iBlog 1.4.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I used to looove this application...but I cannot recommend it any more. Back-up features are now broken. The developers have really dropped the ball on this application. It was a very good and VERY promising application that is quickly becoming a liability to use. They have been, they claim, fixing bugs- but they only get worse and there are no new features. How about a banner photo, or side menu clock/photo/calendar?! I just bought BlogStudio...you may want to have a look at it...the way iBlog is going it will not be around much longer.

"Double warning"

April 14, 2005  |  By Stimpson

 |  Version: iBlog 1.4.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.

1) Major bugs are still not resoved. I pointed these out to the developers in december... So there are still problems with disapearing dates making your blog useless to edit or to publish. A lot of people have pointed this here and tried to contact the developers. I can't believe they still release this kind of crappy version of a program that used to be great.


2) Now iBlog Backup doesn't work anymore. It can't delete the new preference file. So be sure to make a backup copy of your blog by hand, before running this version.


iBlog seems to get worse with every new release. Stick with version 1.4.0. (It works with iPhoto 5, so you don't need the update)
