has anyone tried this blogging app?

It looks interesting, but I can't find any proper reviews online which I think is a bit of a red flag:

Never heard of it, you should try MarsEdit though. Daniel is a great developer and the app is by far one of the best apps in the category. Give it a shot.

Thanks, I hadn't heard of that app. It looks very nice, and it's got good reviews as well. It's a bit pricey, though.

Good software isn't cheap. Developers cannot live on measly salaries so expect to pay for good software.

Oh, I know. I'm just a bit skinned right now!

Another vote for Marsedit, great blogging app and works with Wordpress.

Would I need WordPress if I used MarsEdit?

Marsedit works with WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, TypePad, Squarespace 5, Movable Type and other blogs. It is what I use to edit the blog linked in my signature. Much easier to manage posts in MarsEdit that the standard Wordpress control panel.

I'm still a bit undecided, and I'm considering MacJournal - this is supposed to work (well??) for blogging but can also be used as a general note taking app. It seems to be getting good reviews.

Does anyone have thoughts on Marsedit versus MacJournal?

I have tried MarsEdit. Pretty neat app as well.

I've been trying out the free trial version today. This app is NICE. I think I will go for this. Thanks for the suggestion.

Daniel Jalkut over at Red Sweater makes some good stuff. MarsEdit is arguably the best blogging app out there. A lot of the big bloggers use it for a reason

Have fun!

Is setting a future date on a blog post in MarsEdit the same as 'scheduling a post' in the WordPress web interface? Meaning, if I set a future date in MarsEdit and press 'send to blog', will it appear as 'scheduled' in the WP web interface?

I don't use Wordpress but I'd guess so. Easy way to check is to set it. Then check the WP control panel to see
