EightKeys: Change The Way You Type
Today a new tweak was released into Cydia that will change the way you type on your iDevice. It’s typing concept is that there is 8 large keys shown when you are going to type something, and each of the eight keys when clicked leads you to individual letters. Example: One large key will show ERUQ, and when you click that key you will then be shown smaller keys with those letters. Personally when I installed EightKeys I was expecting something a little bit different, and after trying to get used to the new typing experience, I found it difficult. I unfortunately uninstalled the tweak for this reason, but if you want to experience a new way to type on your iDevice, I suggest that you try out EightKeys.
The tweak comes with the following features:
- Eight large difficult-to-miss keys for typing letters and symbols
- You can now focus on the text you edit. No need to keep watch on key strokes and autocorrect suggestions.
- Take control of the words you type. Freely type slangs and non-English names.
- Type on the go
- Type blind
- Designed for both landscape and portrait mode. Can be used with one or two thumbs
If you are interested in EightKeys, it is available free via the BigBoss repo. Let us know if you liked the new typing experience.

SBSwitcher: Bring The Power Of SBSettings Into The AppSwitcher Bar
Lots of new handy tweak are being developed, and one new tweak has just hit Cydia is called SBSwitcher! This tweak will allow you to bring the functionality and power of SBSettings into a new area of your iDevice. Meaning that you can access all of your handy toggles through an new user interface; and in this case you will be interacting with the AppSwticher interface. As your toggles will be transferred to the AppSwitcher bar upon installation, you can even access your toggles through your lockscreen.
If you are interested in this new SBSettings tweak, it is available through the Cydia store for a price of $2.99! Now I know a lot of you are probably thinking, $2.99 that is an outrage! To be honest even we think the price is a little high, but regardless of this tweaks price. If you have a spare $3 to spend, this new tweak for SBSettings is quite useful! You see, SBSwitcher really makes SBSettings feel like it is a default part of your iDevice. With the plain old SBSettings tweak, it is extremely easy to tell that this is not something that was intended for your iDevice. With SBSwitcher installed though, SBSettings really feels like it is native to your iDevice.
Let us know your thoughts on SBSwtitcher for your iDevice!

it works and worth my dollar.
This can be achieved for free with the use of the Terminal plugin iRetiner.
Download iRetiner, and type in MobileTerminal iretiner. Then press 1, followed by Y (yes), and the script starts doing the exact same thing.
Exactly what I was going to say! I’d rather have to run a script in Terminal than pay :P
i just realized that this tweak is freezing up iTunes during syncing and transfer apps.
You cannot sync your apps with the tweak installed?
Very true, thank you for pointing this our DVT. We will look into writing a post about this soon! Thanks for the heads up.
