It's been a while since I blogged. Decided to start again. The software doesn't even open now. Thought I did not update the software to Lion. Checked the dev site and it is down. Looks like the software was abandoned. It is a real shame since it worked well.

Have used Blogo for a few years and liked/recommended it. Integration with WP was seamless as was the ability to drag & drop images. However, it looks like it is no longer being supported. Error message: It looks like your internet connection is down. Blogo will be unable to post until your connection returns. (all passwords verified and checked). I've emailed developers over a month ago without a response. Looks like Blogo is destined for the trash can.

Can't believe they haven't updated it for Lion. I got this instead, MacJournal 6:

This is abandon ware, do not buy it!

Unfortunately this used to be good software but now it's not being supported and randomly stops working whenever Brain Juice's servers go down.

DO NO BUY!

I hope they get there sh*t together and release an update though.

The website is back up and Blogo is working again for posting to blogs but the Twitter feature still is not working. I was very surprised that the post/update button was greyed-out when the Blogo website was down but I could still save to Blogger as a draft and then publish from the Blogger Dashboard. Bizarre process that the software has to contact Blogo every time it's used.

While I generally like Blogo and found it superior to MarEdit when I trial=tested both side-by-side, it is of concern that Blogo/Brainjuice seem to have stopped updating their blog, publishing fixes to problems like the one with Twitter and do not answer mail to the support address. Even if (best scenario) they are feverishly working on a revision for the AppStore it has the appearance (worst scenario) they are going (or have gone) out of business. That the website came back after a few days is encouraging - someone must still be on the job - but I wouldn't recommend anyone pay for this software at this time.

It's a shame because it is good software.

I agree with your recommendation regarding purchase at this time.

They are also deleting comments on there blog.

Yeah, agreed. I carefully chose this app ahead of the others a couple of years ago, and it got top reviews. Support and development were never lightning fast, but I did get responses in reasonable time initially. Lately however e-mails have disappeared into the blackhole, and bugs are aplenty. Shame, to say the least.

Don't buy (for now, at least).

They will still accept your $25 even though they haven't released an update for the Twitter bug and they seem to be deleting the comments on their blog.

I've sent them several emails since a lot of time and had no answer. I don't know if they are working hard, but if they're certainly not working on answering their mails :(

Like several of the other reviewers, BLOGO has a fatal problem. It fails to recognize an active web connection. This renders the application to be useless, since it cannot post anything. I have contacted the developers, but have not received a reply.
It's too bad because it used to be especially useful software - now useless.

Same here. They seem to check the licence by phoning home. But their servers are down. I had a lot of trouble with this licence method in the past. When you want to write something with Blogo it will usally not startup. Very bad.
