iPhone and iPod Delete and Backspace28 Nov 2009
I’ve had an iPod touch for a few months now and I’m a little frustrated by one of the keyboard elements. The keyboard has a backspace key but has no delete key i.e. you can delete characters to the left of the cursor, but not to the right.
It would be nice to get a tweak in the firmware to convert the backspace key to a delete key. Whilst initially pressing shift and backspace might seem like the obvious choice this would mean two key presses every time you wanted to delete a character. Instead of that it would be better to ‘change the mode’ and so perhaps using caps lock to change the backspace key into a delete key would be a more viable option?
So come on Apple … just one little tweak.
