Ah, the dreaded phone limitations! I was disappointed to discover that I can’t, as an editor, publish submissions from my phone. I am often away from a computer for long periods, especially when I am not working. I mostly use my phone for Medium.
I am impressed with the work-arounds you and others devised. Medium seriously needs to give its app the same functions as the online website. Too many people do most of their online activities via a phone these days. Hey, Medium Staff, take note: we need more comprehensive phone apps!!
