Buzz Andersen: A Plea for Better iOS Text Facilities:

"Now this may sound like a surprisingly mundane request considering the number of whiz bang things people are expecting from Apple in 2012, but if you’ve ever tried to develop a native iOS applications that present textual content downloaded from the Internet, you probably share my frustration"

I used to think that rich text editing of some sort on iOS was just around the corner. I've even had folks at Apple tell me "just wait", as if it was almost here. That was years ago. At this point, I almost think it's on purpose that we don't have any sort of rich text editing. I just can't figure out why.
