Writing blogs using Android iOS or Gmail Apps

Updated on March 5, 2015

Creating article's using your smartphone's gmail app


How it all began

Writing articles using smartphone technology was only a dream many years ago, heck mobile technology was just a dream in some little young prodigy's mind from just 21 years ago.

So when it emerged onto the scenes, it was a true amazing event indeed, I'm sure everyone who's old enough to remember back before cell phones were invented, them good ole beaper's, and them huge car phones (The real mobile phones, where that cool name originated from). "Remember that!"

The trouble that technology poses to many non-technical people today, and especially those folks new to smart phones, is that there's to much to focus on at once, so when we learn something on them, it's like a huge discovery as if we found something no one ever has before, like when Benjamin Franklin first discovered how to redirect the flow of electricity, with his kite electrical storm experiment.

Even these beasts are now Obsolete!

The Smartphone Epiphany

How it all happened to me one day is, I was siting in the car on a bright summer afternoon thinking to myself, "What can I do with my cell phone". I can no longer afford to pay the bill to get the internet on it or send/receive calls, and without a wireless WiFi connection. All I could do is use it at home from my home's internet connection, pretty much my smart phone has become just a miniature camera (like in the old 007 James bond movies), as well as a video camera whenever I leave my house, "What a bummer!".

So I thought, well maybe if I had a word processing program of sorts, my phone could instantly be put to good use after all. Maybe just maybe I could possibly write a powerful article, while waiting for my wife, when she was shopping at the Gap clothing store on that ultra scorching hot summer day.

So, what I did, I broke out my trusty old Android HTC Hero smart phone, I looked to see if the traffic cops weren't around, because I didn't want to get a ticket for parking illegally, while writing an article on my cell phone (I was parked temporarily at a no parking zone, go figure! with the hazard light on, at that).

Next I proceeded to my gmail account, now what made me think of doing that, who knows right. I thought to myself again, "Self, there must be a way to write, and compose an article with this cool gmail account, even though I had no internet to connect to, and no clue if it was at all possible."


The light bulb lit

Once this thought came to mind, I then decided to find a way to compose my article, even though I never ever done so on a cell phone. I struck the menu button, and next thing you know, I found a compose option thereafter. That's when the light bulb lit in my overly technical mind, and thought "Man oh man I'm on to something now."

I soon began to start typing profusely, and when I came up for air, I began to also look for a way to save the email I just created. "Ahah!" I then located the save tab on the bottom of the gmail compose screen, and walla it was done.

Arriving Home Safe

As soon as I made it home safe, from driving through the hectic rush hour traffic, I proceeded to place the car in park. Next I was determined to test out my theory of sorts, and taught myself how to locate that cool draft of an email file, by pressing the menu button once again, I got puzzled for a second or two.

Than this time however to locate the email file, I had to use some high powered thoughts, (Maybe I needed a helmet to wear, just in case something hit me while the car was in park). So it took a drop of luck, and slight technical skill to actually find that darn file, I actually guessed it, by simply pressing the folders tab option. (I didn't use the cell phone while driving neither, because that's against the law and highly dangerous.)

Cool Gadgets Poll

Ever have trouble trying to figure out these cool! new age gadgets

See results

One more thing

Oh, I almost forgot, hit the send onscreen option, once you figure out how to access that saved email, and after your home wireless network comes on, since you should be in range, that's if you actually have wireless Wifi signals or even a internet access at home.

This new age technology is really unique, so when something as intense as this occurs to you, as what occurred to me here with my cell phone, you will begin to realize that there's much more than meets the eye.

The other thing about it all is when a person needs to make ends meet, they will find ways to make it happen, and that's when improvisation occurs in most cases.

Note: (To all drivers worldwide)

Please be advised not to park illegally anywhere or you may be facing a serious driving violation, and a huge ticket especially in New York City. Oh and never text on a cell phone while driving. (I only do it while in the parked position, at an official parking location mostly).

So if you get caught using your cell phone while driving, it may mean huge fines as well, just don't text and drive its against the law, and please be wise, don't talk on your cell phone while driving because there's some pretty heavy fines for that one, as well.

      LOL @point2make, your very funny.

      I think I need to get into reading your hubs now, to see how far this humor actually goes, and for the fact you took the time to share with me here.

      Its tough you know to try to communicate with everyone here on hubpages, and damn near impossible, but I think we all do our very best with it all in the end. Thanks for sharing your cool insight here with me.

      Thanks for sharing the epiphany CloudExplorer. It makes me want to go to my cell phone and start looking for possibilities. I only recently discovered there is an app for the "internet" and "email" on the screen. I need to wear my glasses more often when using the if I could just find out how to use that that tiny keyboard with these big fat fingers I'd be off to the races. .

      @Michele Travis, your very my welcome, I did it for all those folks who have no idea about these little gadgets, as I once had no clue myself, and found the inspiration to get the upgrade.

      Once you get the newer technology you will never return back, and may find yourself floating around a bit in wonderment, but its all worth it in the end for sure.

      Thanks for stopping by, and for providing me your cool insight, this was a cool thing for you to do for me, see you soon in your hubs as well.

      @Faith Reaper, Thank you Faith, I'm just an average guy trying to figure my way through things I guess, and I enjoy gadgets as well as technology as long as I can afford to make the purchase of them, that is LOL.

      Thank @billybuc, I been using that darn smart phone for quite some time now, and I guess I need to do many more tutorials like this, that appeal to the sense's a bit.

      It is a totally new technique of writing useful how to hubs, and so I'm off into a whole new adventure once again on hubpages. Thanks bro for sharing with me on this one as well, your the best man.

      Thanks for writing this hub. All I use is a simple cell phone with just a few apps, that I never use. Well, at least you can teach me how to use things I don't understand how to use. I was born in 1964 so I am kind of old for this stuff, but my daughter can pretty much do anything, with the computer, the cell phones etc...

      You are genius to figure this out. I am still using a "dumb" phone! Ha. I love the funny parts you inserted into this, making it a lot more interesting too. Great hub once again. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Interesting buddy! I don't have a smart phone so I'm not sure I grasp all of this, but I have no doubt it is helpful for those who do have one. Excellent job as always; you are the fountain of tech knowledge on HP

      Have a great weekend brother!
