Apple's announcements June 8

I was very interested in seeing Apple’s announcement that they have implemented the two-finger drag cursor selection just like used to be in JustType. My favorite note taking app. They hired the fellow that wrote it and he must be working on keyboards and UI.

See http://www.apple.com/ios/ios9-preview/

Scroll down to the section on QuickType. You will see the new options. Note that you can see keyboard options by holding down the modifier keys.

This is exactly the reason I came here to post.

I wonder if Apple will release an API to get similar functionality on connected trackpads. This could technically enable the textblade to offer similar functionalities by taking advantage of the sensors in the keys. That would be cool!
