Comprehensive Feature List

Accounts and Blogs

  • It supports multiple Tumblr accounts with multiple blogs.
  • It lets you disable blogs which you don’t want PostWarden to show at all.

Archiving

  • It archives all your posts so you can access them at all times.
  • Archiving is an automatic process which runs silently in the background.
  • Archiving keeps up with your latest posts, no matter where you post them from (Tumblr, PostWarden or any other 3rd party app).
  • During the first run it quickly archives all your existing posts. After that it keeps doing so but in a slower pace.
  • It lets you choose whether you want a blog to be archived or not.

Browsing

  • It lets you browse through your archived posts even without an internet connection.
  • It lets you jump to a particular year and month in a blog’s archive.
  • It lets you open the original Tumblr post in your default browser.
  • It lets you view your photo posts, watch your video posts and listen to your audio posts right from the app. (Video and audio posts need an internet connection.)
  • It lets you browse through your blogs’ drafts.
  • It lets you browse through your offline drafts.
  • If a blog has archiving disabled, it lets you browse through that blog’s latest 100 posts.

Composing and Editing

  • It lets you edit and delete your posts, drafts and offline drafts.
  • It provides quick posting from the menu bar icon.
  • It shows a photo preview of photo posts you’re composing.
  • It supports posting in markdown (Tumblr’s implementation of markdown.) if your blog has markdown enabled.
  • It lets you write custom tweets if your blog has Twitter enabled.

UI

  • Its UI is very minimal to give the spotlight to your posts.
  • It shows a pretty preview of your posts while you’re browsing through them.
  • It has Lion’s fullscreen support.

Some technical details

  • It authenticates with Tumblr using xAuth and saves the tokens in the keychain.
  • It stores the posts in plaintext files in YAML format so they can be human readable and fairly easy to use in a scripting language with YAML support.
  • It uses Grand Central Dispatch heavily to work great in multicore CPUs and perform all the fetching without hanging the UI or hogging the CPU.

Known limitations (which will be addressed in future updates)

  • Composing is currently limited to HTML or Markdown; there is no text formatting.
  • It doesn’t work with private blogs nor private posts.
  • It currently doesn’t archive photo-set.
  • It currently doesn’t archive answers.
  • It currently doesn’t allow composing photo-sets.
  • It currently doesn’t store local copies of mp3s from audio posts nor videos from video posts.
  • If a post is deleted in Tumblr or any other 3rd party app, PostWarden won’t know that post was deleted, therefore it will remain in the archive.
