That one made me quince, but I'd be lime to you if I said I didn't enjoy it.

Sometimes, too options can be a problem. A few days ago, I nedded to take a photo from a bus ticket and the "one hand holded" smartphone insisted in asking for a miriad of options of embellishment and in fixing my priorities. Just this time, I would have preferred an not so smart phone.
As the interface, that´s to say, the languaje you comunnicate whith is changing every other day nowadays. Do you think a button that reduces the "smartness" of your device is necessary?
I believe the main issue is that a smart phone can be loaded with dumb apps is often (miss)used by dumb people.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
The real problem is poor app design. In many cases, programmers take an application that runs on a PC and try to cram all of its features into the app that runs on a smartphone. A smartphone has a much smaller screen and limited input methods, resulting in an app that is full-featured, but difficult to use. They would do better by only including the features that you have to have on a smartphone, leaving the rest for the PC.
For example, Microsoft Outlook allows you to set rules that define the folders where e-mails are stored. This functionality exists on the PC version, but not on the smartphone version.

wow, normally I have problems changing 1 word in a text message (trying to get the stupid cursor to the right place with old bent fat fingers - anoying).
but I'm impressed somebody would actually edit a doc on a phone, always thought it was some sort of joke. again I'm too old for that - at least that's my excuse [for anything too hard]:
for me stuff like that has to wait till I get home/actual office and can use a normal keyboard etc.

I'd never use it to create a doc or do serious editing, it's way to clunky for that. However for reading it is fine and making minor edits like changing a word or two isn't impossible.
Waiting to get home/office for a normal keyboard would still be my preference but sometimes I don't have the time or luxury due to one or two semi important customers and their randomly self created deadlines.
