Will there ever be a point where I can start an email and add a pic or file after the fact. One thing I liked about android. I hate having to go to the picture first then start an email.

We've been able to do this on iOS for a couple years.

1. Start the email.
2. Tap and hold.
3. Tap the arrow.
4. Select Insert Photo or Video.

As far as files go, just use DropBox or whatever app you are using to store them. Most have a share button that will generate links and start an email.

That's too difficult? Aren't you already in an app that has this non-photo/video file? If so, you just generate the link and email it right from the app. It only takes a second. You cannot access the full file system on iOS, so you have to use this method unless it's a photo or video. If this is unacceptable, Android might be a better option for you. It's a piece of cake for me. It's not harder than Android, it's just different.

No I was laughing at the fact you could do that. I honestly didn't know. I would click on the picture then create email. Just sad I didn't know that
