    I use my phone from Mombasa. I hope to raise money for a laptop. The experience of using a phone isny pleasing. What do you guys use when writing your hubs?

      I thought the other way round is more effective

    Well many of those who replied to this are categorized in to two. Men who mostly use Desktops and women who mostly use Laptops. Very few people use their phones. Does the tool used affect the quality of the hub?

    Everything.   I use my phone,  tablet,  desktop,  and laptop,  depends on my mood and location.

    Mostly my desktop, but I also have a laptop I use sometimes when I need a change of scenery or want to work outside my home.

    Desktop. I don't own a laptop or a tablet, and I would find it difficult to do anything on my phone.

      I agree. Most of the time I have spelling issues on my hubs

    I use a desktop, it would be nice to use a laptop but it's too small to see.

    Laptop all the way. Will sometimes write a paragraph or two on phone when waiting in line for something, but that's it.

    I use a laptop most of the time, but do have a Blackberry Playbook, however for some reason Hubpages does not work on the Playbook as the drop down menus used refuse to stay open and navigation of the site is almost impossible. Since the Playbook uses Apple software as well as their own I would expect this problem on other platforms for tablets. Squidoo did not have these issues (Paul Edmonston - take note).

    If you have areas in Mombasa where you can get public WiFi I recommend a laptop so you can write from those places. Both a phone and a tablet may not work, as most sites are still optimized for desktop browsers.

    I hope that helps you.

    I use a laptop and during my research I have lots of Chrome and Firefox tabs open. Just got a smartphone. (I know, where I been?) It's a Galaxy Note 3. Love it. I'm typing away using a stylus. Learning all kinds of things I can do with it-- like quickly taking screen captures and writing on them. I can see myself using both devices in the future.

    Peace -TD

    I use my laptop(s). I have made some minor changes with my cell phone. I don't think I could do an entire hub on a tablet unless it was one of those with the keyboard attachment.

    I use a laptop sometimes or my desktop. Since I store my images and writing on my desktop, I usually finish up there. A tablet wouldn't serve my purposes as I'd then have to carry a compatible mouse and keyboard around in order to meet my needs.

    A laptop hooked to a large monitor, keyboard, mouse and speakers.  When at home it is effectively a desk top.

    I use a tablet to create my hubs. Occasionally I have to use a borrowed laptop to do a job that can't be done on the tablet. The tablet - an iPad - does most of what I need, though.

    I use both a Laptop or computer. I type it in a word processor like Microsoft Word and then paste into the hub. As I go throughout my day I can use my laptop as I go from place to place. Most  restaurants and eateries have open wireless signals to attract customers. I take my laptop everywhere I go so, sometimes, I can read hubs, respond to questions and make comments. I may even complete a hub and publish it while I'm out and about. When I travel, I take my laptop and can write at times. So, it all depends.

    I use a desktop for writing. If I'm in the forums or checking out other hubs I'll use a tablet. Great question by the way - I've always wondered what other folks here use!

    I normally use a laptop but when I'm away from home (like now) I use a small 7 inch tablet which is OK for replying to comments, participating in forums, small edits and checking stats. However it doesn't work very well for uploading images. I would never use the small Android tablet for writing a whole new hub.

    I use my laptop and write at home. But I consider writing with ipad when I go to holiday. I think I can write a hub with it.  I will try.
