myWPEdit is a gorgeous and sophisticated WordPress client. Written by a long time blogger for blogger(s).
myWPEdit is of course ready for OS X Lion :-)
And you can of course use it for an on WordPress hosted weblog or you own installation as well.
Or in other words:
Blogging made fun and simple - and the easy way.
Just open myWPedit and start to blog.
Write with myWPEdit the same way you are used to from myWritings or Pages. Insert images by drag and drop and format text bold, italic or insert lists, blockquotes etc.
For the nerds, myWPEdit supports HTML (like the 'more tag') and if you're even nerdier - use Markdown, multiple accounts, sophisticated templates for recurring articles and autocompletion for tags and categories and of course you can import already pre-written articles directly from other Apps like myTexts pro.
In addition you can also preview the text you are working on at any time.
Published posts can also be ‘web-previewed’ at any time without leaving the App.
And because blogging often means to work with web-finds, other articles etc.
- I’ve extra added support for our Read It Later bookmarks with built-in preview.
Because we often find a typo or have to re-write a paragraph the moment we’ve published a text - the text one is currently working on is automatically saved and even available after publication – so editing a published post is a piece of cake.
And of course you can also access already published posts and because many of you really use the draft feature, they can also be accessed with ease.
Some important facts for pro bloggers with unique demands:
Accounts available: 5
Support for Custom Fields: YES
Support for Custom WP Slug: YES
Support for Featured Image: I would love to - XMLRPC does not offer this :-(
- however, image URL can be automatically used as Custom Field value :-)
Support for Pages: currently not - is in the works :-)
Support for Post Format: Standard, Asside, Gallery
Support for Custom Post Formats: YES
Timed publication, Drafts: YES
Excerpt: YES (by using the More Tag)
Editing of published Posts/Drafts: YES (the last 500)
Editing of Image HTML Code: YES
Support for HTML: YES
Support for Markdown: YES
Support for Rich Text: YES
- and best of all: no need to switch, just mix up HTML, Markdown and Rich Text
IMPORTANT: IT IS FOR WORDPRESS ONLY AND A VALID WORDPRESS WEBLOG OR ACCOUNT IS REQUIRED! PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL APP FROM WORDPRESS.ORG - IT IS A THIRD PARTY APP FROM MOAPP FOR USE WITH WORDPRESS! IF NEEDED, PLEASE UPDATE YOUR WORDPRESS INSTALLATION TO THE LATEST VERSION.
FIXED: Drafts Bug
PLEASE BE SO KIND AND RATE AND REVIEW - THIS HELPS TO IMPROVE THE APP! THANKS, MICHAEL (MOAPP).

Simple and working - Don't understand the problems. Type in your credentials and that's it. Nothing else to do. Of course you need the latest WP update and you need to know what you are doing. Everything is working the way you expect it from a native Mac application. Drag-and-drop for images. Preview. Shortcuts. Auto-save. Etc. There is even a verbose manual and help and you can ask for assistance at any time. Directly built into the App.
can't get it to work - I can't get it to work with my wordpress blog, and can't find any useful help files. It doesn't recognize my url or my password. Worthless.

Great. And just got better - Update: With the latest update it got better. No w I can applu my own post format. Thanks Love the Readmelater feature. This program works nicely and feels nimble. I have no problems with writing drafts or the photos. It makes me very productive.
Needs an offline mode - This app makes editing a blog slightly easier than using the native WordPress editor, but there's no huge advantage. The feature that would make it killer would be off line editing. I'd like to be able to create a series of blog entries when I'm away from my wifi connection, including pictures, and then upload everything with a single click when I can connect to the net again. That would really be great when traveling.
Surprisingly weak - I am a minor fan of MOApp's software (MyTaskNotes, MyTumblr, etc). I like the simple sophistication of the user interface (e.g: Michael has eschewed the latest craze of filling your screen up with HUDs) and the fairly well thought out mix of features (what to include, and equally importantly, what to leave out). On these counts myWPEdit is a winner. The user interface is clean, the integration with WordPress is deep, there is support for Markdown, and all that at 25% the cost of the leading Mac blog editor (MarsEdit) should leave me happy. If not for the surprising and debilitating weaknesses: the editor behaviour turns bizarre at times - typed text fails to appear, but upon closing and reopening the editor suddenly appears; typed text appears in unexpected points rather than at the cursor; the documentation is weak or non-existent (clicking on Help -> Manual leads to a 404 web page); the font size of the editor is tiny and unconfigurable (unless you count a zoom/magnification setting); there is a timezone setting whose purpose is unclear and setting which requires counting markers! (if you are in IST, you can forget setting it altogether, there seems to be no support for 1/2 hour timezones); the Markdown preview does not live update, and there is no update button in the preview window, so you will actually need to close and reopen the preview window each time you make changes you wish to preview; there seems to be an arbitrary right margin at which text wraps, which means that depending on the zoom setting, you could have a lot of empty space on the right, or text cut off from view unless you resize the window. I would have preferred discussing all this with the developer directly, but an attempt to do so on email/Twitter drew a testy response from him suggesting that the product works fine for all other users. If you are one of those users or likely to be one (i.e., you do not find the sort of erratic behaviour in the editor that I did, and you do not find the Markdown preview and other limitations a problem), then you should read this review positively: this is still a very clean and affordable product. If on the other hand, you might be hobbled by these limitations, you may wish to wait for an update that addresses some or all of them.
its ok, needs help - Not the greatest wordpress posting program I have used, dont know why, but a free pc one is better. I would like to see this one add in image crop and have ability to add a link to another site through image, I have tried and it doesn't work. I would also LOVE to see myWPEdit_Image REMOVED from images, who wants to have that? Get real guys, thats just advertisment for you when WE PAY for this program, let me name my images!!
Poorly Designed - This App does what it says, however, it doesn't seem like it was written by a long time blogger as stated in the description. I found that a lot of features were missing like - there's no HTML view, you can only browse up to 500 articles in archives and bunch of other stuff. It's not worth $10, maybe $3.
