I just found out by accident how to add a shortcut to quickly create an Object on Android!
Add Anytype to your home screen
Tap and hold the icon
Tap and hold the “Create a new Note” item
Drag it onto the home screen
If you tap the new icon, Anytype will open and create a new Object immediately, allowing you to type away, right away!
I guess next steps would be to customise the default object type
Whoa, TIL we can do that on Android in general!
Hopefully as Anytype gets more feature-rich this can be more useful.
…and I guess it’d be nice if we can set the default place for the notes created by the widget (e.g. in a specific Collection)
Right, some collection like “Inbox”.
This IS helpful.
I would argue that 2 additional (or perhaps better, maybe depending on the user) methods for Android would be:
- Having Anytype present a ‘Share’ target
- Presenting a Quick Settings tile so it would be always accessible from the pull-down shade (potential workaround here but I have not tried it)
