Switching it up

With my return to iOS pushed back a year I decided to change things up a bit.

I've been using Edge as my browser of choice since I made the move to Android and it's been a pretty faithful servant. Despite being based on Chromium, however, it has a few peculiarities. The latest to annoy me is that it doesn't automatically support dark mode via the "prefers-color-scheme" CSS media query.

Chrome has never been my preferred browser on Android so I have decided to give Brave a spin and see how I get on with it. The focus on privacy is obviously an attractive draw but I was just looking for something that suited me and supported what I want.

I have also recently changed the app used for writing. I was previously using Simplenote due to it being cross-platform but wasn't entirely happy with it. I suppose I'm too used to Drafts on the iPhone.

While looking for another note-taking app that supports Markdown I stumbled across Pure Writer and was sufficiently impressed to pay for it. With a Markdown keyboard extension it reminds me of Ulysses on the iPhone.

Interestingly, I'm partnering it with the WordPress app which has historically been quite poor in my experience; it seems to have gotten significantly better so I'm using that to do most of the actual posting.
