For WordPress-run blogs, Blogsy supports the featured image function. The app also handles YouTube embedding, although it’s not compatible with all blogs. Blogsy is simply the best iPad app to post pictures and videos on your blog.

Aviary is a popular online photo editing app for iPad. It is an all-inclusive photo editor and practically everything you can ever want to do on your iPad. Both Blogsy and Blogpress allow you to add photos in your posts, but the image editing capability of these apps isn’t that great.
