My biggest problem with text input on iOS is its flaky autocorrection. I’m regularly typing words iOS doesn’t auto-correct properly, so I need a simple, quick way to revert autocorrection. iOS doesn’t have that. webOS does. Simply hit delete after webOS corrects something. Rather than deleting the last character, this undoes the autocorrection. Boom. Done.
Amazing idea. Mathis’ piece is about all of the great features of webOS that he wish Apple would copy. What jumps out at me here is how many great features webOS has. I do wonder if the hardware had been better if it would have stood a better chance. A good read if you have an iPad and didn’t know much about webOS.
