1. WordPress
It’s easy to manage your WordPress blog or site from your iOS device. With WordPress for iOS, you can moderate comments, create or edit posts and pages, view stats, and add images or videos with ease. All you need is a WordPress.com blog or a self-hosted WordPress.org site running 3.1 or higher. I highly recommend to upload Jetpack plug-in to access to your statistics as well.

2. Dashboard for Google Analytics

Using your Google Analytics account this application shows the most important web analytics metrics of your website on one single dashboard. You won’t have all the Google Analytics metrics on your smartphone – but the ones that are important from a management point of view. In addition, a ‘Website Performance Index’ is automatically calculated, that shows your website’s performance for today, this week and this month in one single number. Even more, the index is indicating in red or green whether your website performance is on track or not.

Hey Frederique, I love your top 5 picks. I would maybe add 2 others that I found incredibly useful on my iPhone. Evernote - which I use to jot down notes or inspirations when I've 'idle time'. It syncs with other devices too, which makes it handy. The other is Flipboard. I like the rich image style it uses to present feed from RSS sources, Linkedin and a host of other reputable sources which I am allowed to configure. With its simple to use and rich interface, it super easy to get addicted to it. :)
