One of the ones that needed to be updated was my Blogger app for Android. I had not used the Blogger app for a few weeks, but I went ahead and updated the app.
One of the reasons that I had not used the app for so long was because of my first experience using it. I had started writing a blog post using the app, saved it as a draft, then finished it on my laptop when I got home from work. I then published it from my laptop.
Unfortunately, the next day when I opened up the Blogger app on my phone, the post reverted to my saved draft and I lost the finished post. I wrote about that incident on this post that I wrote completely on the app. Since then, I have used Google Docs whenever I have wanted to start a post on my phone and finish it on my computer later.
After I downloaded the update, I checked to see what included in the update. One of the features that it the update contained was that it contained a full sync feature. I think that this will fix the issue that I had with the post reverting back to the version that was saved as a draft on my mobile app.
The first time I used the Blogger app, it only showed blog posts that I had started or published from the mobile app. It did not include any previous posts. Now, since the update, the mobile app shows all of my previous posts. I am looking forward to seeing whether or not this new feature will allow me to start a post on my mobile device and finish it on the computer later.
