Several people have mentioned the difficulties with moving an item up or down on the native iOS app for ipad and iphone. Here's what I've found.....
It is nearly impossible for me to reliably get into the "move mode" to move an item on an iPhone (native app) or iPad (native app).
To be fair, my fingers are a bit shaky when trying to press on the screen, but 99 times out of 100 this is what happens:
-Making sure the keyboard is off-screen.
-Tap & hold, then a text magnifier appears (not what I wanted). Then the keyboard appears and I have to start over.
-Tap & Hold, wait, nothing happens, so I slide up or down and the screen scrolls (not what I wanted).
Interestingly enough, this might be partially my wobbly hand's fault, and partially a bug.
It seems that if I restart the app (quit it on iOS, then relaunch it) I can then perform a move operation normally, even several times in a row. However, once I enter 'text move', either accidentally or on purpose, it becomes nearly impossible for me to perform a move afterwards.
Regardless of the likeliehood that this is a bug, perhaps there are too many 'tap possibilities for various functions' by tapping a line, and moving a line should be relagated to 'not-textual areas' or the UI, such as the bullet points and a button icon in the toolbar.
