On August 1st, I had the extreme honor of previewing the beta of Squarespace’s Android app. As a multi-year Squarespace user, I was extremely happy to have access to the service in a native app on my smartphone. It provides me with access to my blog, its comments, and its stats while on the go. While it was released after its iOS brothers, the Android app felt very polished and functionally when I used it.
Now, almost exactly one month later, I am happy to announce that the team at Squarespace has released this app into the wild. It is complexity free, and gives you all the features you would expect from a blogging app. Like I said, you can manage and create posts, manage comments, and even preview your site. All this is possible in a mobile environment.
In my time with the beta versions of this app, I found no real limitations. I was able to write and publish personal blog posts, which was cumbersome on my 4-inch touchscreen. I could also manage my comments, including both deletion and approvals. My favorite feature, however, was having access to the stats package on the go.
If you are a Squarespace user and you have an Android device, then you must get this app. It will change the way you manage your blog. I can’t recommend that you get it enough. If Squarespace’s service and updates to their web offerings is any indication, this app will be updated and maintained like no other in the market today.
