Bug typing on my Android phone.
« on: April 23, 2016, 05:45:27 PM »
I'm running Cyanogenmod 13 on my Nexus 4.
Sometimes when I write something (to post), the input cursor goes back.
For example instead of "I love cake"
It can turn into I love cake (without ""), I lovcake, and basically Ilocke.
You get the point.
Take a look into it, it may be Cyanogenmod's fault.

That is NOT A BUG... that is a FEATURE! Actually I have had that problem on Cyanogenmod as well as the stock android... quit fatfingering that keyboard... The reality of it is that I am not sure what causes the problem!
Windows assumes the user is an idiot... Linux DEMANDS Proof!

It also does depend on what web browser you use on your phone / Android tablet. I have found that Firefox, Dolphin or Opera web browser (Not the Opera Mini version) work decently for posting posts. Keep in mind though that this website wasn't designed for mobile devices. Dolphin web browser seems to work the best because of its excellent HTML5 support compared to the others.
