  • The ability for user to precisely place and move text-cursor within editable text fields.
    • Tap anywhere on the text to instantly position the caret on the spot (approximately, I know) and show the handle for a couple of seconds to allow for fine tuning.
    • Start dragging from the handle to move the caret, and be free to move away from the handle while still dragging (so you can prevent your hand/finger for not seeing where you're moving the caret to)
    • Swipe anywhere over the text anytime to scroll.


  • Ability to create selections (for copy and paste functionality)
