Thoughts on MarsEdit 2

MarsEdit 2

In my previous post, Checking out MarsEdit 2, I did a test post using MarsEdit 2.

I have to say that I like using a desktop editor for doing my posts. The only downside to this is that the Media Manager is lacking a few features.


  • The custom template option is great for seeing what your post will really look like
  • In-line spell checking as-you-type
  • You can do advanced text editing (it’s in the “Markup” drop menu)


  • No WYSIWYG advanced text editing (you have to write the html for formatting text) Correction, see 3rd entry under “Plus”
  • No ability to edit/add title, caption, or description to an image that you upload
  • You cannot remove or edit an image/file in the Media Manager

This seems like a great app for doing quick posts. It seems to need a bit more polish for more advanced editing if it’s going to take me away from using the online editor that comes with WordPress.
