I've got two very disgruntled content writers. They are finding Orchard slow and painful. I'd love to suggest they do their blogging with livewriter, but both are on Mac.

Has anyone found a client for mac &/or iPad that can successfully remote publish to Orchard?

If i remember correctly Orchard uses XML-RPC.... so these clients may help?

Mac OS X

I got the list from here http://codex.wordpress.org/Weblog_Client

Also, how can it be slow and painful? What kind of hosting is this? What version of Orchard?

What can they use with MS Office? One of them has "2002"

Sadly, After trying all of those options (except Ecto & BlogMate which looks horrible) - none worked on Mac.

I also downloaded and tried "BlogPress" and "BlogWriter" for iPad. They did not work either.

Edit: Sorry I misread your post. Here's a page which Google easily found showing a number of Mac blogging apps: http://mashable.com/2008/11/28/blogger-mac-apps/

Also I did another search and there are some browser plugin blog editors. Scribefire looks quite nice, it's a Firefox plugin and should be cross-platform. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/scribefire-blog-editor/

Any Wordpress-compatible blog tool should support XML-RPC so there are probably hundreds available. What about the built-in word processor on Mac, doesn't that have any blog support?

The official WordPress client for Android doesn't work (says 404 error was encountered).

Are there any other suggestions, for Android specifically?
