I agree that Medium’s overall drafting capability is great and I can’t recall losing a post as a result of something not saving — even a response, like this. But yes, there are other benefits to using a separate app to write, as you note. Though I suspect, Medium could implement a bunch of those things in the iOS/Android apps…
