I came across Net Writer some months ago, when it’s creator, Ed Anderson blogged about how he’d taken the newly-released Open Live Writer code and used it in his just-started Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app for Windows 10. In January it only supported blogger accounts, which meant that I was unable to use it. However, I checked again this weekend and discovered that it now supports a wide range of blog software including BlogEngine.net that powers blogs.blackmarble.co.uk.
I’m writing this post using the app. It’s great for quick posts (there’s no plugin support so posting code snippets is tricky) and most importantly, it works on my phone! That’s the big win as far as I’m concerned. I’ve been hankering for the ability to easily manage my blog form my phone for a long time and now I can.
