    Is there any app that lets you "scroll" through the text you inputted like how the Iphone/ipod does it?! (Hold down finger on the text you inputted, little magnifying glass comes up and you can move it left/right) Because I recently downloaded the slideit keyboard and I really like it but it's a pain in the butt trying to edit a word, I keep getting the edit line thing in the wrong place and there is no left/right arrows to move it either so I spend like 5 min trying to get it in the right place.

    Maybe Slideit has cursor keys, too.
    Did you look at settings?
    Most keyboard apps have it.

    Yep I checked all of the settings, there is no arrows/cursor keys at all, the only thing it allows is to tap the text field with your finger and that is difficult.

    I can't see what phone you has.
    On my HTC Desire I has a optic trackball for adjust the cursor in text.

    There is text editor
    "Amoeba has touch magnifier and precise cursor, good at text selection and selection editing"

    I didn't try it. Maybe the app is helpfull for you.

    Actually Amoeba has exactly what I need but it doesn't work for most text inputs (Messages, search, etc). Is there anything that works for all text inputs?!
