Create / Update an application to write from Android and iOS

Hello, Ghost friends.

It is a pleasure to be part of this community for more than a year.

My suggestion is that you can update the existing application or create a new one where you can access the websites developed with Ghost, both within Ghost.org, as well as other hosting such as DigitalOcean and others.

I make this request because like me, I am sure that many of us who have websites managed with Ghost, travel constantly. Which would facilitate the way we can write on our blog / website without being tied to the laptop. (Laptop / iMac)

This would be a great advantage over other CMS that are competitors, but do not have an application (WordPress if you have an application). It would be very interesting if the application is not only available for Android devices, but also for iOS.

Many times I have great ideas and I would like to write them directly in Ghost CMS, take a photo and put it as a featured image … and not write in a notepad application on the cell phone. This to later finish the initial idea on the computer, or perhaps also publish it directly from the phone.

Without further ado … I wish you the best in the world. They do a great job and I love them.

Greetings!

Sorry, I’m not entirely sure but are you suggesting a native application for mobile? Because you can already edit your Ghost website on the move from a mobile device just via a web browser at yourwebsite.com/ghost/

I think you may be using the Ghost desktop application currently? Which was deprecated, I believe (I liked using it, but I understand why it is no longer being developed).

Or have I misunderstood your question?

What I was suggesting is a native app. For both Android and iOS.

I have not yet tried the new features in version 4.9.x from the mobile browser. I am aware that the “last” update has better compatibility, since I am active in Ghost’s private community, but even with good compatibility in mobile browsers, a native app that works only with the basics would be very good, Featured Image, Title, Excerpt and post content.

That can be left in draft, published or scheduled. Without going too far into the other settings like themes, integrations, and all of Ghost’s great settings.

I didn’t mean to give the impression that I am opposed to a native mobile app :slightly_smiling_face: It can be quite a bit of work though, I think.

Is there another super secret Discourse forum or something that I’m unaware of? If so, I am deeply hurt :stuck_out_tongue: But seriously, I am curious if there is one.

And it just occurred to me that a native app might be great for people who have a smartphone but not a laptop or PC. I shouldn’t assume that everybody has access to a computer.
