Instead of complaining about all and everything you should
either start implementing these features yourself (if they
aren't anywhere to be found already) _or_ you should give up
the idea of brining in zillions of clueless smartphone users

happen even _if_ Emacs had everything you are telling us it

Again what does it matter what other people do? If they are
happy using smartphones, so be it.
