The impending switch

I said a little while back how I was considering moving back to iPhone from Android but realised that I actually switch platforms because I get bored.

That's true, but in the weeks since that post I made the definite decision to switch thanks, in no small part, to the return to blogging.

Echoing what I wrote, it absolutely makes sense to return to a single ecosystem so that I can more easily shift between devices and continue where I left off. Yes, there are other apps and services that allow you to do this, still, I miss writing in Drafts on a daily basis. Not to mention the flexibility that its Actions provide, including posting directly to the blog.

My current phone, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, has been a fantastic device - no question - and switching to Android last year had little impact. At the time, stepping away from blogging meant that a lot of my old workflows were redundant. I wasn't writing in any form and needed none of the automated tasks I was using in Drafts or Workflow/Shortcuts on iOS.

Besides, the upgrade from IPhone X to XS wasn't worth it, whereas the triple camera setup on the Huawei was a sufficient jump.

The iPhone 11 Pro may be playing catch up but seems to have fixed the one major issue experienced on the Mate 20 Pro: colour, exposure and focus shifts when switching between cameras. If the three cameras on the new iPhone work together as well as Apple claim, supposedly being matched in the factory and taking cues from each other in real time, then it should be a joy to use.

I'm largely platform agnostic and have always been able to achieve what I wanted regardless of what device I was using. That doesn't mean, however, that I don't want to use the best tools for the task at hand.
