Chris Gonzolez put together a Squarespace wishlist that reminded me of some of the frustrations I’ve written about. He makes a number of great points, but this continues to be my main frustration:
If Squarespace isn’t going to update its own app – it’s been 25 weeks (!) since the last iPad update – they should open up some kind of public API for 3rd-party apps to use. If I could just publish directly from Byword or Editorial, it would change my entire game.
Their head of operations (I think?) replied to a frustrated tweet of mine with a cryptic “stay tuned,” but at this rate it could be years.
I’ve been thinking of continuing to use Squarespace for a home base, but moving my blog to a platform better suited to day-to-day posting. Tumblr or any of the Dropbox blogging services offer much better blogging functionality.
But maybe if I wait long enough…
