The Softcatalà corrector is indeed nicer when used with keyboard and 
But I had problems with it when I tried to use it with touchscreen 
phone): clicking the underlined words usually just opens the on-screen
keyboard or magnifies the word, it does not offer corrections.

Webvoikko is a bit hard to use (especially with a small screen mobile 
because scrolling up and down is annoying. But it does work fully with 
sorts of devices which is something I have not yet seen with other 
services. And it allows integrating the morphological analysis feature 
we currently support only for Finnish).

But having separate input box and analysis areas is a problem. I will 
have to
think about how to solve it without breaking any features. One option 
would be
to have two states (editing mode and proofreading mode) and easy and 
method for switching between them.
