I thing you already know that, actually there are various reasons to have a own Android and iOS Application for your wordpress blog. Many of you are blogging to generate good income by writing good articles on your blogs so that you can monetize your blog more effectively.

That is awesome as anyone can find you even from Google Play and iTunes as well.
