Default 2 iPhone things I like. Are there Android Apps???

The 2 things I like are:

Slide lock on the iPhone and the .com button when typing vs. having to hit all 4 buttons. I couldn't find anything but maybe I'm missing it.

Thanks!

There are numerous lockscreen/locker apps and keyboards on googleplay.

WidgetLocker and SwiftKey.

Personally I hate the .com button though! I prefer a consistent keyboard layout to one that changes by context, but haven't managed to persuade the SwiftKey developers. Just goes to show how people's preferences differ I guess?

The good thing with android is that you have choices in these things

Several keyboards have a '.com' button. But it's only useful occasionally to me - as I'm in the UK why don't they do a '.co.uk' button .... ?

Yes and yes.
Those features have been around for quite some time.

Do you happen to know if the swift key has the .com feature. Looking at all the screenshots, I don't see it?

It's context dependent. If you enter a url in a browser it is there, if you are writing a text it is not.
