    From comments, I read from fellow bloggers Gutenberg is not working very well for people who use a PC or laptop. Shouldn’t that be fixed before going on to roll it out to mobiles?

      Amen, Vanda. WordPress just dropped this on us. There should be an option at least to go back to the old, reliable editor.

        You can use the Classic Editor plugin. That said I’d recommend having a play with Gutenburg on a development/staging site if you get a chance. I first tried it last year and there were far too many bugs for production but recently it’s at a stage where I’m installing it straight away onto new sites. It takes a little getting used to but makes some things a lot easier.

    What’s the strategy for handling custom blocks? Will the Mobile App start pulling in JS from the site itself?

    Oh my gosh… this is ridiculous even the normal GB is not ready, full of bugs, UI failures, etc. Every 2 weeks there is a changelog that takes for minutes just to read. But it is already an optimal point in time to port all that to mobile devices.

    Of course it is based on JS…the most secure platform on earth that is also easy to maintain. Makes much sense ;-D

    This is a real disaster. This new editor is already taking all my pleasure writing on a descktop, now it will do the same in the mobile environment. This text said almost everything I’m feeling:

    I am already reformulating my site in Blogger to migrate everything to it if they do not give a new direction to this project.

    Wouldn’t it make sense to release Gutenberg in full, across both the sites and the apps, at the same time?

      It does feel a bit odd that Gutenberg is going live before the mobile app is ready to handle it. I recently experimented with going back and forth between the mobile and desktop editor. I got a few warnings but ultimately the content did not break between the two editors even though WP warned that it might.
