    The first thing I wanted to do when I saw this was to disable it.

    Xmas 2011 - a great present from Apple would be the ability to switch off "shake to undo" and have an undo button appear on the onscreen keyboard. It could be on the numerical keyboard, it's already there on the iPad and there would be space on the iPhone keyboard too with a tiny bit of rejigging.


    Shaking to undo isn't practical or cool and has led to m iPhone going flying a few times.


    And before someone suggests leaving feedback for Apple, I already did a while ago. As a fan, user and shareholder, I would love Apple to do something about this.

    Plz make t go away.   Who wants to shake to delete anyway.  I have a key for that.  Undo typing came up 15 times while I typed these four sentences.

    Allow us to assign a keystroke on keyboard plus some other global action as an alternative.


    Especially for iPad.


    Backspace delete key is good for typing, but not for undoing actions.


    I know an amputee - just 1 arm - shake to undo is awkward enough for us and worse for him. He has to use deathgrip and nearly break the glass or otherwise the ipad flings across the room (or down the airplane aisle). So much for the famed usability for the less able bodied or elderly.

    you CAN undo the shaking. go to settings, scroll down to music, tunr "shake to shuffle" off. this is for the ipod and nano comments. not sure about the phone. my ipod and phone only shake to shuffle when playing music.
