The past few days I've been creating a new version of the Paper Website app that contains all the features of the desktop version.
This has presented some really interesting challenges, mainly - how do you take a fully fledged website editor designed for a computer screen and squeeze it onto a mobile screen.
In some areas this is easy - e.g. popup menus become modals.
In some areas I still don't know what to do. How do you style your website using a settings menu whilst being able to see the styles updating live?
Overall it's going well. The app is actually looking "cute", like a baby version of Paper website.
However, even though it looks cute - I think this will end up being more popular than the desktop version - it'll just be so much nicer to use.
