A friend pointed out that iBlogger, the iPhone blogging client based on the ecto codebase, is on sale – only £0.59 in the UK app store right now. I’ve previously used the free WordPress app, but since I contribute to blogs on various platforms this seems like a good alternative… and it has nice support for images (test example embedded) and links. Worth a look. Ironically I’ve recently switched from ecto to MarsEdit for my desktop blogging client, but iBlogger seems very nice indeed.
Update: hmm… so it doesn’t pad the images very nicely and I’ve had to edit in the browser subsequently… but otherwise it works well. Need to try with some non-WP.com-hosted blogs. Also it doesn’t appear to have applied any tags, which is annoying.
