Good evening, Many of the Wix Blog team know me, and our company and the size of the audience we have. Alone this month we have had 876,000 engagements on our Facebook posts, all of which are clickable through to our website blog.
We are a very pro-active news/media company in our local area. Reporting on breaking news and news as it happens, this is why we mostly post from our iPhones/Samsung phones and not a desktop.
Our reporters have recently been pulling their hair out and reporting issues to us about the app, i am going to list them below - but i would like if i could have a conversation with someone about these issues - someone who works on the mobile app version of Wix Blog editor.
Uploading photos through editor on Wix App doesn't upload full quality image - (iPhone and Android).
Uploading photos through editor is very slow, up to 40/50 seconds sometimes - (iPhone and Android).
Title of Post double types what i have put, keyboard is Samsung built in, not third party keyboard - (Android).
When adding paragraph breaks to post, we save, publish and the paragraph breaks disappear, we then have to go back in and space it out again, which works, but then causes an issue of too much spacing between paragraph - (Android).
Toolbar isn't showing all the time when highlighting text - (iPhone).
Scrolling inside the text editor on mobile app is painful and sometimes there is a big white overlapping box which appears at the bottom of the screen, causing real problems when trying to scroll. This tends to happen when the keyboard shows up and then disappears (when finished typing) - (iPhone).
Editing text colour on mobile app doesn't work, why show the option if it's not going to work?
'Create your first post' tooltip keeps showing up on the circle Admin Menu floating button, we have 2,800 blog posts - so why does this keep showing up.
Text size should match what i have chosen for my mobile site version, to better show me how the post will look. It's too small on the mobile app editor.
These above issues/bugs might not seem like a big deal to the Wix Team, but to our team we have to use it every day. Day and Night. It's not a good experience. Please improve this as soon as possible. Mobile is becoming more and more popular, especially for bloggers and journalists.
Many of the above issues/bugs were reported direct to blog product managers, but i feel like this needs action. I know that some of this should maybe go through Wix Support, but unfortunately i did not get a good experience with support on any of these issues and will no longer like to deal with them in regards to the above.
I love the Wix Blog, it's becoming an amazing product. I just would like to see more mobile focus on making it a LOT smoother...please :)
Now i would like to talk about some features that are absolutely vital to our operation, which are not available on the Wix Mobile App:
Post SEO settings
Ability to add Image Captions
Change the author of a post
