Blogging from an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad

You can post to your Typepad blog directly from your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad mobile device.

Posting Options

Post by Email

Each blog and album within your Typepad account has a secret email address. You can use the email application on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad to email posts directly to your blog. At Settings > Post By Email, you can get the secret email address for your account.

You can also post to your blog by sending a text message to the secret email address.

Any files attached to the email - images, mp3s, videos, etc. - will be embedded within the published post. Formatting and HTML applied to the email will be stripped in the published post.

Additional information is available in the article on posting by email.

Tip: When including images in your email, the full size option should not be selected. For best results, choose a smaller image size. Large images will not be published successfully.

Typepad App

The Typepad app is available for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Click here to download the app.

Safari browser

In Safari on the iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, navigate to http://m.typepad.com to sign in to your account and post to your blog.

Please note Rich Text editing and inserting images is not available when posting from a mobile browser. The latest version of Safari mobile does not include the tools required for Rich Text editing. Posting by email using the secret email address is recommended if you wish to publish a post with images.
