    My wife was creating a post on her iPhone and thought if she left the app she would be able to come back to her post later and finish it up. Since she was on a new draft in the post editor, the OS killed the app when more resources were needed and she lost the post.

    Maybe we can add a draft save when the app enters the background when in the post editor?

      It should be the case, kind of. If you create a draft, I believe every time you end editing a field it should get stored.

      We could listen to UIApplicationWillResignActiveNotification and UIApplicationDidEnterBackgroundNotification just in case. Maybe memory warning notifications too.

      But if the draft was completely gone (as opposed to just the latest changes), it’s a bug.

        OK, I’ll try to reproduce it on my device. I don’t think she ever completed editing the field, just left it in the full screen content editing mode.

      Easy bug, we’re missing a [self.post autosave] in textViewDidEndEditing:
      I’ll add that when I’m done merging the 2.9 branch

      Added #982-ios, it shouldn’t take long but a ticket is more reliable to keeping a tab open on the browser as a reminder :)

        I added a local save into applicationDidEnterBackground: to resolve this. That way if the user switches out while the textView is still in edit, the content will be saved.

    @kokejb, I created a ticket for the iPad save issue that I mentioned earlier
