I may be crazy, but I like to try things just because I can.

Today I have decided to test how could it be to create content (writing to this blog specifically) on the iPod Touch.

Writing on that small screen for a long time, could hurt really badly. But if you have a Mac bluetooth keyboard, then you can really write for hours, it is just as easy as doing it on the MacBook Pro.

I have to hold the screen nearer my face, so I have the iPod Touch in front of the keyboard instead of the normal way, where the screen goes behind the keyboard.

It is really comfortable, and a good option, if you do not have an iPad, and still want to create some content while waiting in an airport for example.

It may be a little crazy, but not more crazy than those guys talking at the phone with their bigs Galaxy Notes.

It is also great how you can control your music from the keyboard. Play/Pause, volume up/down, and even the brightness of the screen is easily controlled from the keyboard.

I would love to be able to switch apps with Command+Tab, but that is not working… yet?

As far as I can see, the only real difference between an iPad and an iPod Touch is screen size.

I am not saying you should work this way, and maybe this is the last time I do something like this.

Anyway, in case you may want to blog from the iPhone using Markdown. Here is what you need

  • Dropbox account
  • iA Writer app (To write with markdown in full screen)
  • iPod Touch or iPhone
  • Bluetooth Apple keyboard
