The folks at LiveJournal have launched a new app that lets you post entries, read updates from your friends pages, and access personal messages from an iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

LieJournal is part blogging service and part internet forum/community. Like Blogger, WordPress, Posterous, and other online blogging services, LiveJournal provides users with a place to create a personal blog where they can share their thoughts with the world. But you can also follow friends and join communities, allowing you to see updates that others have posted on their own blogs or in community forums.

The new iOS app has a built-in text editor for writing posts, uploading pictures, formatting text, or even including polls. There’s also a tab to see updates from your friends, and another to read messages.

The only problem I’ve found is that when you click on the Journal tab to view your own site, the LiveJournal app shows you how many comments there are on each post… but it won’t let you read them without opening the web browser.

LiveJournal 0.60 for iOS is available as a free download from the App Store. The app is based on, which was originally created by CosySoftware before it was purchased by LiveJournal.
