    hey guys

    on android, u can tap in the middle if any word and the cursor would move just there for u to edit or whatsoever

    how to make the possible on iPhone/iPad without having to press and hold for the magnifier to appear? :)

    thanks in advance!

    If you are jail broken, you can install the free tweak, SwipeSelection, from Cydia. With it, you can move your fingers across the virtual keyboard to move the cursor. This allows for precise placement, all without having to use the magnifying glass.

    But, if your iPad is stock, I'm afraid you'll have to use the magnifying glass...
