A couple of years ago, I was a big fan of Adriaan Tijsseling’s Ecto blogging client software. Some interface changes and a required paid license (after I’d already donated quite a bit when it was freeware) soured me on it, and I switched to using MarsEdit or just posted using the WordPress web interface.

I decided to see what Ecto looked like nowdays after hearing of a recent update, and all I can say is “WOW”. Everything’s back in a single window (like I like it), the interface is great, functional, and beautiful. I’ve just paid the very reasonable $17.95 for a permanent license, and will be using it for my posts to SunHELP, MacHELP, FiftiesHouse, and this weblog in the future.

One thought on “Ecto!

  1. How is Ecto working out? I loaded wordpress onto a new, to be blog website for my son and realized it’s so complicated I can’t see how in the world I will be able to actually use wordpress — you have to be a programmer to use it!!

    I want elegant, easy, feature-rich, powerful — did I mention EASY to use, straightforward, USER-Friendly? — is that too much to ask for a blog program to be used on a hosted site?

    What do you think? And more importantly — recommend??
