Update on this — Overall I’d say the Ghost Koenig editor is “usable” in iPadOS, but not a complete experience yet as at late October 2019. I’m using an iPad (2019) with a keyboard that I bought as an experimental temporary replacement while 95% of my MacBook is being replaced under warranty (I need a lightweight backup device as I travel a lot and rarely am near a computer repair store).
Things that work
- I can type. Using iOS/android browser, when you type the cursor moves around, so I may type a few letters, and the cursor will move to the beginning of the word
- I can scroll around
- I can access the context menu and insert images
- I can navigate around the admin console
Things that don’t work:
- Selection using finger is often unresponsive. It might bring up a “select” menu, but then I can’t select anything. If I manage to select a word, I can’t expand the selection.
- Using keyboard shortcuts works, but often just in one line. So I can’t use a shortcut to delete a sentence spanning a few lines, or delete a paragraph.
- As @adders said, it’s hard to bring up the context menu. So I use the Markdown shortcuts to type.
Basically “passable” but it’s not how I’d choose to write.
Still, that’s a big improvement over how it worked in iOS! If I had an iPad already, I could use it in an emergency — something I previously couldn’t do. But I think I’ll get a Chromebook as my backup.
Apart from Koenig/Ghost - I can’t find a decent free image compression tool to hyper-compress JPGs with good quality in iOS. I had one in Mac OS and one in Android.
