    Pros: 

    It's easy to use, has a cards-based design that feels at home on Android

    Cons: 

    Maybe add the Unsplash integration?

    Ghost is the right platform for your next blog. It's simple, easy to use and has a nice distraction-free markdown editor on desktop. The thing that was missing from the blog-writing experience was an official Android app to manage your blog. What I like with the app is that it's great for making quick edits on the go, or even starting a new post. Unlike with other blog solutions, Ghost does not require a ton of maintenance, or plugins to make it work.

    Pros: 

    Easy to use. Fast. Works offline.

    Cons: 

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

    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.

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.
John O'NolanMaker@johnonolan · Founder, Ghost
@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 :)

Big fan of Ghost, slightly less so of @johnonolan due to our centuries-long blood feud.
John O'NolanMaker@johnonolan · Founder, Ghost
@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!

Congrats @johnonolan it looks beautiful as usual. Curious to hear about how your team are navigating the shift in focus away from personal blogging and more towards professional and brand journalism. Any insights to share from thinking deeply about where this is all heading?
John O'NolanMaker@johnonolan · Founder, Ghost
@jonnym1ller That's such a great Q! We've observed so many shifts over the last few years in how people publish online, how they interact with publishers, and how those publishers themselves are finding their place within the wider market. It's tumultuous to say the least. Overall people are publishing less often, with a greater focus on social networks than indie publications. The whole world has no idea what publishers can/can't be trusted. And publishers themselves are, as ever, growing poorer by the day because Google and Facebook have truly cornered the advertising market. Paired with a general sentiment of being utterly fed up with content marketing and "10 weird ways to do [x] to your cat" listicles - we arrive at a place which is decidedly dark for publishing as a whole. A lot of people are pretty doom and gloom about it these days - but I actually think there's tremendous opportunity. I think there are a lot of areas here which are ripe for innovation, but the clearest of all is in business model. If we can find sustainable ways to get content publishers paid, then they will be able to focus on doing what they do best. I'm not a big believer in clapping as a form of payment, but we've certainly got some of our own ideas in this department :)
