I’ve been wondering what other people use to write their posts. As a dedicated mobile user, I’ve become very familiar with the notes section of my phone and the Docs app. What do you use to write? What do you prefer?

I write on my phone, I used to use Microsoft OneNote, but now I bought the iA writer app and I’m using it now. The monospace font pleases me. LOL.

OneNote has finicky  selection/copy & paste on mobile which I didn’t like. But what ultimately moved me away was the proprietary file format - OneNote files cannot be opened with anything else, while iA writer saves them as .txt files.

Do you format via markdown when in it?

nope, because the val editor doesn't support markdown. I use the classic

[i][/i] for italics
[b][/b] for bold

 and that's pretty much my styling. However, I do use "[//]: # Notes:" to note down stuff from other people's posts that I don't want to put in the actual post! Then when I'm done, I just export to HTML > Copy, and the notes will not be copied.

*hmmm* (true)

I use an editor with markdown and then parse it for italics and bold when I’m working in a word document. It isn’t seamless and wouldn’t work for someone just posting from phone like yourself. I was just noodling

If I had the option, I'd use desktop since I could see it probably better. But I do like mobile, since I edit a lot and write posts on google docs and then copy and paste. 

Then do the bold and italics like Jaistlyn does. I don't use markdown cause don't know what it is nor the option.

Since the poll is lacking an option for "wood and crayon" I settled for desktop

My apologies for the shortsightedness of our staff in that regard. Changes in management have been made following your comment, and we can guarantee a “wood and crayon” option on our next poll.

I write exclusively on my desktop. The laptop I find a little hard to type on, and forget about using a phone. I might write a sentence or two on chat, but that's it.

I had a friend who I once wrote with who sometimes had to use her phone to post; when she used her phone, her posts were disappointingly short (she usually wrote long, satisfying posts) and had more grammatical errors than I cared to count. Knowing it'd be the same with me, I never pull out my phone to write. The thread won't disappear overnight, so it can wait till I sit my ass down in my computer chair.

1. A Mobile Device is strictly for PHONE Calls: it serves no other purpose to me.

2. Desktops are fully functional for a hacker like ME: I can cut, paste, edit as I like since I sit right NEXT to my ISP Device.

3. Office 2013-19 is the ONLY way I see fit so that I can post and edit; even if I have heavy Grammatical Errors, I can still edit as I go, while surfing the web, downloading my Anime Collection, Burning DVDS/CDS (Yes, my ANCIENT ass still uses writable MEDIA; a lot of MY Computer Clients don't even know what the FUCK Netflix IS)

4. If you catch me trying to post from my phone, SLAP the DAICHON out of me; I'm not about to ruin my already-BAD Eyesight.

5. the Horde Rules on WoW!!! Buwahahahahah

6. I still love  Raze!!! ^_^
