It is 2016, and the Android OS still hasn’t integrated the undo and redo features.
Last week, I accidentally wiped off an email I was typing to a client on my Android device. You need to see the look on my face when that happened and of course, I got an image that is almost similar to my reaction.
Here it is
Luckily for me, I had installed something that could help me undo any mistake on my android device. But imagine for one moment that I didn’t have this feature?
Now back to my rant, Ctrl-Z is constant throughout multiple desktop operating systems, and even iOS has the shake to undo, but despite several complaints by users and these complaints go as far back as 2010, Google has still not integrated an undo/redo feature on the Android OS and I am sitting here wondering….
Luckily for those with butter fingers, you don’t have to wait for Goggle. Meet Inputting +, the Android app that has been saving lives since 1989.
Once you download and install the app, you have to grant it permissions in Android’s accessibility settings, but not to worry, your data isn’t going to be stored anywhere as the app works locally. So, be rest assured, security-freaks.
After all that, you should see Inputting+ in the notification panel .
Bear in mind that it would only be activated when you are about to type and the app tracks everything you type and edit, hey, without storing it online, remember? Now to undo or redo any mistake, just use the undo or redo arrows. By the way people, this works across major apps.
What do you think?
