Posterous launches Android application for easy micro-blogging on the go

Popular micro-blogging site Posterous has announced the release of an Android application, which allows users to quickly and easily post text, pictures, and video to their blogs while on the go. Posterous, like similar service Tumblr, provides users with a dedicated blog-space so you can easily share content with other individuals.

Adding blog posts is extremely simple with the Posterous application.  Simply click the post button and type away, or click the plus icon at the top of the screen to add media content such as images and video. You can also set Posterous up so that your updates are always fed to Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, or over 20 different other applications.

Posterous is currently available for free on the Android market, and should support all Android versions. Head on over and check it out using the QR code above if you’re so inclined. Any readers use Posterous on their desktop PCs and planning on downloading the Android application? Let us know what you think in the comments.

    The irony of an email-to-post blog service releasing an application to email-enabled smartphones isn’t lost on me.

    App works fine. Too bad it doesn’t have a widget for quick posting from the Home Screen. However, you can always add a shortcut icon to speed up launching the app.

    I’ve confirmed that you can post pictures, too. Just select the desired image in Gallery (not in the Posterous app), then Share, and Posterous will be one of the options.

    Did you try PosterousIT?

    Actually, as a long time posterous user, I’ve dound that using the basic email functionality seems to be a better solution than the “official” posterous app – is really just as fast for text and even faster for image and video uploads. However, there is another app called PosterousIT which is very useful if you want a very easy interface for controlling where your posterous posts are posted on the fly.
