Mobile blogging shouldn’t be this hard in 2017

Is it just me or is mobile blogging still much harder than it should be in 2017? Why is it still such a convoluted process to quote something, easily add links and publish something appetising from a mobile device?

Or maybe I’m just using the wrong tools …

  1. The Ghost mobile web UI is quite functional, the WordPress admin seems quite responsive and then there’s the WordPress mobile app; quoting and adding links should be super easy.

    1. The WordPress app is pretty good. I think what I’m frustrated with is that blogging on mobile needs to be a little different to blogging on a desktop.

      It’s much easier to copy/paste, edit and do other stuff in a desktop environment than on mobile. I’d love to be able to highlight text, send it to the WP app and have it appear as a blockquote with the link inserted somewhere in a useful format.

      That sort of thing.

  2. The WP app would either need much tighter OS and browser integration or you’d need to be using a “reading” app that is tightly integrated with your blog’s publishing functionality to enable a workflow that fluid.

What do you think?
