Is there a smartphone application for mylot? I tried to post something from my phone but it would not permit me.

No, there is only this website. I and many others do not have a problem with posting (except for the small size of screen and the hassle of using an onscreen or tiny keypad). There may also be some issues with the way that MyLot restricts copying and pasting. Smartphones very often place typed text in a buffer (temporary file) and then, effectively, copy it and paste it into the text entry area. MyLot has a mechanism which prevents people with a user rating of less than 500 from pasting anything longer than about 10 words or an average URL into the entry screen.
