The last couple of months, I’m working with Discourse on my iPad mini.
As you might have noticed, the screen size is pretty limited. While writing, I would guess 55% of the screen is filed with the keyboard, 15% with Safari UI elements, 20% with Discourse UI elemets and the rest is the actual composer module with Preview.
By swiping the page upwards, I could safe 10 % from Safari.
In conclusion: I have 20-30% available of my screen.
- I’m pretty unhappy about this.
- We need a new solution for mobile devices (WYSIWYG?)
- One-time UI elements could be dynamicly hidden.
What are you thinking about some 2-step-assistant like composer? In frist place you are filling title, tags, category… metadata… and as next step you get the most exciting full screen writing experience you can get on iPad / mobile devices.
