You had your entire life to prepare for today.
Well then we will pass on the 200 order. So a volume issue to have an edit feature in a dictionary but to crank them all into contacts is ok
Like always APPLE INC talking outside of two mouths. Embarrassing
Doubt they are embarassed.
Whats 200 compared to 17+ million sold already?
If your needs are specialised and form factor appeals, why not pay to have an app written for your use.
If it's good you could retail it as well as use it.
Actually the iPad does have an adaptive dictionary. Once you type in a mew word it will try to correct it once or twice...after a couple times it will add it to the dictionary or just red underline it.
Talking about a simple add edit dictionary. Hey I get paid well to critique the product well and I hope you do as well. It's good but a toy more than a tool
Hey forum master. I
Made another thread because it was suggested to do so. Thanks for combining
I guess my point is it would be like making a BMW with hand crank windows
Sorry about the suggestion. Didn't mean to cause you trouble.
But I'd say it's more like expecting a Smart Car to have BMW features. These are mobile apps that you are comparing to full computer apps. You are constrained by two things. The more limited device, and knowledge of what features are important enough to support; because you are going to have to pick only some features. The hardware just isn't up to supporting full featured computer apps. At least not yet.
So, for each person and/or use case there are going to be features missing. Time and feedback should minimize this in each app. Market competition will fill in special use gaps with targeted apps.
The product and the market is less than a year old. It is not mature enough to support every possible use.
So, yes, provide feedback on features you want and need. Make your use case, and provide proof that it's a viable market worth pursuing. But acting like it's some terrible act of incompetence and/or deliberate neglect doesn't help. It just alienates the very people who are most likely to be able to help.
Or, in short. If you want something from someone, yelling at them isn't a good tactic.
Well maybe I am zealous but when you have so much going for you it's a simple miss. Poet I do appreciate your help. Always! This just looks like another example of apple stepping over the dollar to pick up the dime. Let's blend art and science!
