iPad keyboard prototype to make editing text easier, misses point

Daniel Hooper has come up with a number of tweaks to the iPad keyboard to make text entry better. Various websites are in awe, but the basic gist is something I’ve mentioned before: just implement a few arrow keys – default on many Android keyboards – and be done with it. Hooper uses gestures to perform the functions of the arrow keys, but they are non-discoverable and most likely error-prone (you’ll hit the keys) – and thus more complex. Arrow keys. All I ask for.
