Just yesterday, we told you about an awesome keyboard concept we hoped Apple would implement in a future version of the iOS. Though Apple's stance on the matter is still, expectedly, a mystery, one jailbreak developer has brought the concept to life in a brand new jailbreak tweak. The tweak is called SwipeSelection, and once downloaded and installed, it makes text editing on an iPad much easier. If you have SwipeSelection (either on your iPhone or iPad), swiping along the keyboard with one finger moves the cursor. Swiping from the shift key highlights text, while swiping with two fingers moves the cursor at a faster speed. Though it might sound simple, these text editing tools make working with words on an iPad something of a dream: we all know that cursor manipulation can be imprecise and messy; SwipeSelection, in adhering to Daniel Hooper's concept video, has the potential to turn any Apple fan into an efficient text editor. Below, we've included a walkthrough video of the tweak posted by iDownloadBlog. If SwipeSelection isn't already available in the Cydia Store, keep checking - because its developer is planning on releasing it today, free of charge. Enjoy!
