    Is it possible to move the cursor character by character within text, i. e. to correct a single character in a Google search?

    I do not mean deleting characters with the back key, I mean moving the cursor within text without deleting.

    If you hold your finger at the spot where you want to place the cursor you will get a magnified circle that will show you exactly where you are. Just move your finger until you are in the right spot and resume typing.

    Enjoy!
