I recently posted some thoughts about iCloud for Desk PM and it harkens back to the thought of bringing some sort of integration between this app and the desktop publishing client I’m building.

I wonder if this might be a nice bridge between the two? Imagine if you could snap a few photos, add your custom edits, and then see those images as available via your desktop app? In that way you could easily add more context and a more robust story around the images than what you can do currently in a mobile device.

Why? Because as great as mobile (and tablet) devices are there is still no substitute for a real desktop publishing experience. A keyboard is so essential for full-bodied writing that I couldn’t imagine storytelling without it.

Sure, you can attach a keyboard to your mobile device via Bluetooth (or directly) but I still need corollary apps to make it all work together. I still believe in the desktop app.
