Editing Maps by Phone
Some games that make use of maps and counters/miniatures utilize Google docs with separate graphics elements. It's a good solution, but has fallen a bit short for me, because I am often reduced to viewing them on my phone which doesn't appear to enable me to click and drag elements to edit the map. I know others have run into this.

I recently learned that I can use the arrow keys on my phone's keyboard to move an element I have selected. This has proved to be adequate to move my character's marker, so I wanted to mention it to others.

Huh... I had never even thought of using Google docs in the first place.  That's pretty cool idea/information all 'round.  Thanks.

In reply to GamerHandle (msg # 2):

Yeah, it works pretty well, as long as you have or can make the necessary graphics elements.

I have never found a good solution to this problem. The great thing about google is the embedded image updates to what has been moved so you can at least see what has happened.
