  1. Very interesting and I am off to the Android market now to grab this download. I love the fact I can post a draft while I a mobile and come back later to finish the article. I do not know how many times I thought of something while on the go and forgot about it.

  2. Strange. I received a connection error upon tapping save:

    org.xmlpull.v1.XmlPullParserExcwption:expected:START_TAG{null}methodResponse(position:START_TAG (empty)@1:6 in

    Now to be fair I am nunning a custom ROM so this may be the issue.

  3. V1.1 Seems to fail to download any post or page that’s not strict xhtml.

    This is a big issue any tinymce adds tags without a closing slash by default.

    Pretty much makes it unusable.

  4. Editor was throwing up an xml error when trying to download the content for editing; and review was displaying a blank screen.

    I may have been wrong about the cause, because this appears to be an intermittent issue. As it is working this morning. It may have been that I just upgraded to it yesterday.
