Blob for Nokia Belle review

Any Symbian user knows that Nokia Store has a lot of holes in it when it comes to apps. Android, iOS and even Windows Marketplace, they all have more apps than Nokia store. However, lately there’s been an infusion of good quality apps for the platform and one of them I’m gonna review today. WordPress had an app available for Symbian for quite a while now, but the Blogger crowd was left in the dust. Until Blob happened. Blob is an almost full featured Blogger(Blogspot) client.
