This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I had been looking for a utility like this to make fast posts to a WordPress Blog. The interface is a bit non-standard (it uses Java) but usable. I would like to suggest that the "Publish" button be made more pronounced and visible. I'd also like the previously published articles always available on the left in a sidebar rather than having to Browse them. Image addition is weak, as it just adds a blank <img> tag. Additionally, even though the font color tags are deprecated, I'd like to be able to colorize sections of text and have been doing so manually. A color picker would be cool (the website says this is added but I don't see it). Multiple category selection is a plus.
Other alternatives in this category are Bloggchen (if you can still find that free version).
