Half the screen estate is already taken up by the keyboard. Could the body section of the question asking screen be popped-out/expanded when focused? I can only see one line of text as I am typing questions (about 40 characters). The page neither scrolls nor expands appropriately, and it's a shame to see a textarea smaller than a textbox.

I believe a picture speaks a thousand words:

Currently the best work-around is rotate the phone to use landscape mode:

Something could be done to make the body textarea fit the top in portrait mode, like this:

  • Yeah this is a bug. It's not yet working as intended... – David Fullerton Aug 1 '13 at 17:46
  • Maybe your screen just isn't big enough :P – Cole Johnson Aug 1 '13 at 18:30

    @ColeJohnson I'll like to see a feature where the screen expands to fit the content – Samuel Liew Aug 1 '13 at 18:45
  • Why is the keyboard so...ugly? Is that just how Android keyboards look? (I have no idea, I'm an iPhone user.) – Cody Gray Aug 2 '13 at 3:40
  • @CodyGray custom SwiftKey keyboard, with custom font - you can do anything to customize an Android =) – Samuel Liew Aug 2 '13 at 3:42

    @Cole That isn't Comic Sans, it's Choco Cooky – Samuel Liew Oct 1 '13 at 3:36

This issue seems to be have been resolved in a previous update. The body field now automatically stretched with the input and the app-view is scrollable versus the keyboard resizing it to take up a very small portion of the view. Feel free to re-open this with new screenshots if you think it's still a problem.
