Android bug: cannot delete words typed in #422
to reproduce: open an editor on android. Type in a line of text, composed of several words, without typing too fast. Try to use the "backspace" button to go back and delete text... Deletion gets "stuck" after a few characters, and cannot delete back further.
Not sure if Android support is a priority?
Just ran into this using Chrome on the Nexus tablet on Android 4.2.1. On certain inputs (kitchen sink/ asciidoc), the function of the backspace key alternates between backspace and forward-delete on each keystroke.
Firefox Beta 18.0 does not have this issue, but has other ones: Clicking in the editor will not bring up the keyboard once you have navigated away by closing the keyboard and/or switching to another app.
Both Chrome and Firefox work better if automatic spellchecking, correction, etc. are turned off.
