I'm aware that this is maybe rather more a missing feature than an actual bug - but whatever.
We are working on a team and mostly doing stuff on the fly (even not other ways possible cause on a 2 year hiking trip in Europe).
Unfortunately there's no "hover-over" function in any android browser possible - so sharing contents simply doesnt work when you use a tablet. This is a great disadvantage cause without that workflowy simply becomes useless for mobile teamwork (and thus also for oneself, when you dont plan out only your own private chores). Copy and Paste would only give the contents but not preserving the structure, so this is useless either.
A simple Google Doc with an inbuilt outline does the job - enables even simple collaboration.
I'd want to ask you to probably rethink the way sharing is possible in web/workflowy app - the way it works currently makes it unusable for any mobile device in a sensible way for teamwork, while normal word documents can provide that.
Also bookmarklets dont work on mobile browsers at all - so very useful and actually basically necessary features for project planning are thus not accessible. Currently using an outline put into a shared excel file.
I appreciate the basic idea behind workflowy but for the mobile (and therefore fast, convenient and time-saving use) there's big lacks, due to the chosen methods.
What about a "share outline" BUTTON and and INBUILT counting tags (sum up time, $ or item count of all children nodes and show) feature in the app? This would work much better and smoother than some hover-over techniques or bookmarklets.
Just wanted to let you know
Actually was planning to be in for a handful of premium accounts but in that way it's unfortunately not usable. Would be glad to hear that issues resolved tho - and am sure to rethink being in then.
