How do I work with Obsidian on Mobile?

Navigation through links is something that 1Writer has. It will even search for a link if it doesn’t exist and if you hit the + button to create a note it will use the title you just searched for.

Wait, how does the search work? Tell me more…

I use Markor, and have for a while. It’s great!
For sync I use Resilio Sync. It lets me keep my files private and not rely on Dropbox et. al.

Would 1writer be able to work with embeds? Seeing them and clicking through to them?

Here is my workflow:
I found a markdown note-taking app on Play Store that can be integrated with git. So, I made my vault a GitHub repo. and now every note I take on my phone is pushed to Github. all what I have to do on my computer is git pull and I get all my notes from my phone.

@Motlaq What’s the name of that app, please, so we can add it to the list?

Working Copy can do this on iOS/iPadOS.

Oh sorry, I thought I provided that. It’s GitJournal.

You can see the [[Links]] and they are clickable as well as long as the note is in the same directory. Emeded ![[pages]] and ![[pictures.png]] don’t work unfortunately.

Epsilon is another good one for Android. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ekartoyev.enotes&hl=en_US

Does anyone have a good webapp they can use to quickly search/add/edit markdown from a mac or windows browser?

Although I did not try as yet, for iOS Notebooks 10 app may be useful. Seems to create notebooks (actually folders) to organize the notes and support [[ ]] syntax.

I would love to hear feedbacks from the people who used it.

But this doesn’t seem to have web app.

In the latest version (0.67), the syntax for color and size no longer corresponds to that of Markor, but works the same as Epsilon Notes. I don’t know about any other differences, though Epsilon is Commonmark rather than GFM. iirc Markor is GFM.

I like both, but I’ve switched to Epsilon Notes because of this.

Also noticed that markor renders "<!-- stuff meant to be hidden but Obsidian and Epsilon Notes hide it
The quotation mark needs to be removed - just added it so that it actually shows here.

@mediapathic You may want to add this to the iOS section—it allows creation/opening of Obsidian-formatted Daily Notes in 1Writer. 1Writer iOS create or open Daily Note shortcut

I often come back to this resource when I’m trying to find the “perfect” mobile editor. It’s specific to iOS but there are several cross-platform apps:

Hi, I’m trying to move my iA writer notes to Obsidian. I am quite new to Obsidian and I only see how to import notes from Roam. Do you know how I can do that?

If you open your iA Writer notes in Obsidian, most should work. Are there any particular formatting issues that are giving you trouble?

You need to pick to a folder for Obsidian to store notes in that iA Writer can also see. Then just move all the notes from the iA Writer default folder to that shared folder.

I use iA Writer on Mac and iPad, so I had an iA Writer folder in iCloud. I made a new top level folder on iCloud for my Obsidian vault, and then added that folder as a location in iA Writer.

There are a bunch of different permutations possible here, but really all you need to do is get the files into a place that both apps can see.
