        very pleasant, even worth struggling with the crosshare interface on mobile
        • Mike D 馃11:29聽路聽2021-10-24T20:13:51.352Z
          Sorry for the struggle - if you think of any ways I can improve the mobile interface please lmk!
          • basil b 馃8:04聽路聽2021-10-24T23:16:19.127Z
            mainly just unfamiliarity, I think. personally I found the back arrow next to the 'a' (combined with the keyboard being smaller than usual) meant I hit it by mistake a lot, but I also have big fingers and am an imprecise typist in general.
            • Mike D 馃11:29聽路聽2021-10-24T23:34:10.577Z
              Yeah I have accidentally hit those arrows before too - perhaps I should just ditch them altogether. Not sure how useful they are and if they are annoying folks then probably not worth keeping around
              • OsthatoAlfakyn 19:18聽路聽2021-10-26T01:01:25.343Z
                Personally I do use them, as otherwise you have to try and tap a tiny square in the grid, but I have to admit I also often accidentally do/don't hit them
