This is really the one issue I have coming over to Android form the iPhone. I can't seem to get the cursor to do what I want. If I mistype a word and need to go back and correct it, what do I do? On the iPhone, I would simply hold the part of the screen where I wanted to put it. When it was in place, I let up and it was dropped there. If I try to hold on the Android, an "Edit text" menu pops up. This is even worse on Swype, which I just installed and LOVE, because it doesn't have the forward and back arrows. The only way I can figure out how correct something is to backspace one letter at a time until I get all the way back to the mistake. I actually ran into a situation where I moved the cursor to the middle of a sentence and then couldn't get it to go back to the end.
