Just curious whether you usually read and post on WP with a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop. Mobile devices seem to be taking over and amazed how well some people can type and edit text on a smartphone. That's hopeless for me because my motor coordination is so poor and my fingers are pretty big. It takes me forever to type a single text message which is why I rarely sent texts. Virtual keyboards hate me and seem take on a life of their own when trying to type. I might successfully type a sentence or two but invariably hit a wrong key or do something to mess it up. Very frustrating.

I have an iPad and can tap out simple messages but I strongly prefer a laptop/desktop keyboard. Because of my poor handwriting I've been typing everything since the 8os and have gotten pretty fast. I've developed my own hunt-and-peck scheme but always wanted to learn touch typing.

Always desktop. (Well, rarely Chrome book too).

Samsung Galaxy S7

Copy pasting is a pain and PM on Wrong Planet doesn't resize the window properly which makes it hard to read/reply to them.

One nice advantage is that everytime WP logs me out of my account for no reason, I can log back in with just my fingerprint. It enters my account AND my password. It is probably my favorite feature.

I use my phone most of the time.
It's very glitchy on my phone, though, and when I'm typing there's a really big delay. 8O

I type most of my posts in notes
because I can't type them on the site.

Thinkpad and Desktop,

Sometimes my iPod when I am totally drunk or in bed sick but I use my thinkpad in bed too 8)

Hmm, I was having problems with a lot of typing delay trying to post with my iPad. I thought it was something wrong with the iPad but maybe the site is doing it.

I use my Chromebook. I've tried to use my phone (iPhone6) but it doesn't work very well for me.

Tablet. My household doesn't own an internet connection or any working Wi-Fi.

My desktop doesn't have a net for two years now. :( I only have access to the net because I know my relative neighbor's wifi pass. I have to hang around the terrace to reach the signal across the street.

If not that, it's random moments when I get to freely use the net from other PCs/Laptops/Tabs/Phones.

What browser do you use? The delay in typing happened for me too with the crappy mobile Chrome but it is non existent on the Samsung Browser.

Is a Radio Shack walkie-talkie a valid answer? :D
