Not all blogs are created equal. In my quest of acquiring my username on as many of the main web services as possible, I've tried all the major blogging services. I've always had an affinity for the simplicity of Tumblr. For some reason, a portion of the Internet holds a great deal of disdain for this service and prefer the more robust services, such as Blogger and WordPress, but I don't.
I've recently started using my Tumblr page again by using it as my photo journal. It's a lot of fun. I also like the fact that you can have a private blog and a personal one, or several, if you wish, all under the one username, just as you can with the competing services.
When I tried the Android app, it clinched it for me. They offer a better solution than the competition for Android devices. Again, it's simple, but has a lot of features. In fact, it has more features. There is a home screen widget for fast posting, which none of the others have and it adds a sharing feature to your system, which a lot do not. It is very intuitive and quite simply, well designed.
Tumblr's ease of use and minimalist design has always lent itself to Android devices, so it made sense for them to put time and effort into their mobile app. As a result, this blogging app is my personal favorite.
As a final note, remember that Tumblr also offers free domain name redirect, unlike WordPress.
