Gemini PDA for distraction-free writing?
« on: October 12, 2020, 09:20:15 am »
Reaching out for suggestions.

Perhaps a console only linux install, and use VIM? Am getting nostalgic for the way I was able to write and stay focussed on my Psion, without the twitchy distractions that I get with modern mobile devices (e.g. checking email or news feeds).

A couple of other thing which might benefit others - switching the display to grayscale has helped (to do this with Android 8 Developer mode has to be enabled). Also, removing icon clutter from the home screen - I just have file manager and my writing application icons.
