We are a little torn between focusing on making Novlr work on mobile as the website currently exists or building a separate mobile app instead. The problem with making the website respond to mobile is that there are a lot of features to try and fit into a small screen – trying to do this in a way that is nice to use is almost impossible without doing it as an app. The other question we have is whether anyone does consistently write their novel on their phone. We personally jot down notes on our phone when we’re out and about and write up later.
We are currently leaning towards not having the main Novlr website on mobile and having a complimentary mobile/tablet app for note-taking whilst out. Perhaps you could send that note up to a particular chapter, or just have it in a separate notes section. Maybe on the app you could continue writing, just the design would be completely different. Constant saving on 3g might be a bit of a drain so would have to be taken into consideration. There are lots of things to think about and we’d love your feedback!
How do you/would you like to use Novlr on mobile? What would be the main features you used. Would you want to be able to use wifi-only or a manual sync for example? Tell us everything!
