MarsEdit updated to version 3.2

MarsEdit, what I’d call the best blogging app for the Mac platform, just got bumped to version 3.2.

MarsEdit includes some great features. It can be used with WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, Squarespace, TypePad, Movable Type and more. It can upload and manage media easily, and save drafts locally for future editing or changes.

Almost every word I write for the Internet goes through MarsEdit. If you blog a lot from a Mac, it’s a must-have. It’s $39, but even that doesn’t cover the joy you’ll have not seeing WordPress’ “Add New Post” screen ever again.
