I’ve been hearing great things about ecto, and, given that I’ve been creating my blog posts manually via the WordPress Dashboard, it seemed like a good idea to have a desktop app through which I can blog.
So, this is the first post I am writing through ecto. I like the fact that I can see multiple blogs simultaneously, and easily switch between them and write posts. It seems to have a nice editor interface, and the inclusion of Technorati tags is definitely a plus.
It’s a 20-day trial period, after which the software is about $18. There’s both a Mac and a Windows version, and if you buy a license for one, you can buy the other for half off. It seems that the OSX version is much more full-featured though, and I don’t think I’d splurge for both.
I’ll keep you guys posted on how the ecto thing works out.
