If you type like me - you pretty soon will be missign cursor/arrow keys - just a thought - would it be possible to implement swipe gestures on the keyboard area to move the cursor around? eg. swipe left on the keyboard area and the cursor would move backwards, swipe right to move forward etc...

or at least arrows on the keyboard ;-)

@ehakkarainen are you aware of the current "magnification" mechanism to easily position the cursor? While there's always room for improvement and your suggestion is a good one, I found here on TJC that quite a few people haven't found out how it works. It could help you while you're waiting for a better solution to be implemented.

Thanks - I did not know about the magnification - it works quite good (once you find out how)

Magnification doesn't exist in browser forms text entry fields. Cursor keys would be nice...

it does not work in android apps neither. and the 'cursor' of android apps is not working too
