Hey Producthunt! Today we're launching our first ever official Android app for Ghost, with full offline support and graceful conflict handling for when multiple people edit the same post. There's a bit of a special story behind this app, because it was actually created *entirely* by one of our open source community members - @vickychijwani. Ghost for Android started out life as an independent project called Quill, which Vicky created in his spare time just for fun. It has been a huge success amongst its users and very highly reviewed in the Play Store, but not that many people knew it existed. So about a month ago we asked Vicky if he'd like to join the Ghost Core contributor team and turn Quill into the Ghost Android application. Joyfully, he said yes! We've got a very small full-time team working on Ghost, so it's an amazing privilege when projects of this calibur are contributed by the wider open source community. We love being able to support them whenever we can. Ghost Android is the second time this has happened now - the first (some might remember) was Ghost Desktop, by @felixrieseberg. As always, would love to hear your thoughts and questions. We'll be hanging out in the comments today 🤓 🤖 PS. We've already been asked one thing lots of times today: "So when are you making an iOS app?" -- which is a great question. If you're an open source Swift developer looking for a an open source project, come say hi: https://github.com/tryghost/ghos...

@johnonolan Ghost rules. A lot better looking than Medium imho.
@erwblo That's very kind! We're actually big fans of Medium - the two platforms aren't mutually exclusive. A lot of people don't realise that you can publish a post on Ghost, and then click on "import" in Medium to republish it. This both gives your story access to Medium's network of readers, and creates a proper rel canonical meta tag so that your Ghost site is what ranks in search engines. Win/win!

@johnonolan I didn't know that either!
@vickychijwani @felixrieseberg @johnonolan Congratulations, and what an incredible effort on the part of @vickychijwani! I can't wait for the iOS app to come online. I wish I had the chops to chip in with that.
@mbmusgrove Thanks, Michael! I'm standing on the shoulders of giants here :)

The app is easy to use. Focus on writing. No administrative tasks. Perfect for those who travel and just want to share some stories or edit an existing post.

Pros:

Easy to use. Fast. Works offline.

Cons:

Would love the possibility in the future to manage multiple blogs.

Multiple blog support is coming! I've been laying the foundations for it for a while now. UI is the major remaining piece :)
Big fan of Ghost, slightly less so of @johnonolan due to our centuries-long blood feud.
@ajlkn look it's not my fault that Carrd is so good, that's on you.
@johnonolan I feel both insulted and complimented and it's tearing me apart lisa
🙌🏽
Big fan of Ghost, and it's awesome to see such a high-quality independently made app become a core part of it. Congrats Vicky and John!
@csallen Thanks so much Courtland! <3
@csallen Thanks Courtland! :)
