iOS Request

Dear third party iOS developers,

Please autofocus the TO: field when I select ‘Share Via Email’. I’m looking at you—Reeder, Instapaper, Dropbox, Tweetbot and Instagallery.

Every native iOS application autofocuses. While it’s small detail, it’s still a detail and they add up to being important.

(Giving how consistently absent this is, I’m wondering if developers even have the ability to instantiate a focus action when spawning an email message window within an app.)

Update: via Twitter, Bryan Clark and Arnold Sakhnov confirmed my suspicion third party developers have no way to focus on input fields, but there appears to be a hack.

    will be preserved.
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
