that also allows for some editing. Defining a useful UI/picking the
editing parts in a way that makes sense for a mobile version (i.e. one
you can use with touch on limited screen estate) is the really
challenging part (besides performance...)

So you will never get "full use" with mobile versions - this just
doesn't make sense UI wise. (Getting the stuff in for final touches
(fixing typos, other small mistakes) or rough outlining is what the
mobile apps should aim for from my POV).

As this is the developer list: you're more than welcome to jump in and
e.g. design android activities with useful editing features presented
in a useful way. You don't even need to hook them up to perform the
actual editing if you're UI designer.
