How The Screens App Made Squarespace Usable On The iPad

I still remember the disappointment when I found out that Squarespace is unusable on an iPad. Yes, you can do simple blog posts with the Squarespace Blog app. But the app is terribly limited. You can't even arrange two images next to each other. Well, no problem, I thought, I just use the website.

But on an iPad the Squarespace online editor is completely unusable. Pages don't render correctly and drag & drop doesn't work.

Whenever I wanted to do something a bit more complex than super simple blog posts I had to go grab my Surface Pro 3. But now I found a solution!

Thanks to the Screens app and an old Macbook turned home server I can finally edit Squarespace and even create complex layouts.

That‘s what it looks like to edit a complex Squarespace website on an iPad with Screens:

No, it‘s not a very elegant solution. But it‘s better than nothing. At least till Squarespace finally fixes this problem and builds an app or an online editor that works on an iPad. It‘s 2018 for god's sake!
