A couple of people have asked if BlogPad will support posting ink as an image rather than turning it into text. Rob's comment on my previous post is a good example.
"By allowing a post in ink, you could keep the ink part and generate it as a graphic, then also store the recognized text as alt text and text that goes along with the post for google search purposes. A user would just need an ftp account in order to reference the graphic."
It is something I will experiment with and I may include it as an option you can select. But I don't want to rely on FTP - most blog APIs seem to support including an inline image so that would seem to me to be the way to do it. Also there is an application that does this now - check out Julie Lerman's BLink.
Rob goes on to say:
"The way it is set-up right now, I wouldn't see any benefit over just using the TIP with just a blogging tool like BlogJet."
Firstly I am not attempting to replace full featured blogging clients - I want something simple to allow me to create short posts quickly with a pen. If I want to create a lengthy post with lots of formatting or to compose a post offline I'll use something else.
The benefit of this approach over the TIP (not well demonstrated in the screencast I will admit) is that you get a bigger writting area. You can full-screen blog pad and write anywhere in the body window. I often find the floating TIP is too small and the docked TIP is not always comfortable to write in at the top or bottom of the screen.
Lastly - I've created a BlogPad category for those who are interested.
