A few months after launching an iOS app, the folks at blogging platform Posterous have added an Android app to the mix. There are already a couple of third party Posterous clients for Android, but this is the first official app for the platform.

Posterous is designed to make blogging about as easy as can be, and the Posterous Android app is pretty simple to use. If you don’t already have an account, Posterous will create one for you and create a web site when you write your first blog entry. If you already have an account, just sign in and you’ll be able to view or delete existing posts or create new posts from the app.

The Posterous app can manage multiple sites, and has a no-frills user interface letting you write headlines and posts, add photos or videos, and tag your posts.

One thing you can’t do from the app? Edit existing posts. You can delete or view them, but there doesn’t appear to be a way to go in and make changes. Maybe the Posterous app for Android is a little too no-frills at the moment.

Posterous for Android is available as a free download from the Android Market.

You can find a few more screenshots after the break.
