Last week we shared with you guys a preview of the HipJot Cydia tweak which brought the powerful custom keyword capable of typing speeds of up to 120WPM to iOS. For those of you who missed the preview, the keyboard itself in HipJot is similar to that of Swype, in that you can swipe your fingers over the keyboard rather than tapping on each letter.
The tweak has since been released in beta form over at the following repo: cydia.myrepospace.com/jormy. Once you add the tweak into your sources you will be able to navigate into the repo listing page and find a tweak called “nin.” It’s the only tweak in the repo, so it won’t be hard to find.
After you install the tweak, respring your device and you can begin learning how to use the HipJot keyboard. It definitely will take some time to get used to it, as it is a completely new typing experience. Due to the fact it is in beta you will also encounter some bugs like the keyboard not working in all locations in iOS.
The keyboard is very customizable and you can change the colors, change the layout, resize/realign and much more. The tweak’s preferences can be brought up by tapping and holding the space bar.
Not all the preferences work at this time, but for the most part it’s a fully functional tweak. Let us know what you think of the HipJot keyboard in the comments.
What’s the theme or tweak used in the pictures for the battery icon and Wi-Fi strength?

This tweak is very impressive and I like it a lot more than the stock Android swipe texting. I feel that it’s much smoother and fun to use. However… It made several iPhone 5S’s that I tested it on tweak out and I was stuck in safe mode or the endless Apple Boot loop until i held the volume up button to reboot. It has preformed flawlessly on my iPod touch 5 and iPhone 5 however. Hopefully the paid one will support 64-bit ARM
I believe it’s “circular battery” coupled with “alkaline”.
whats the name of the theme?
It’s not a theme. it’s the app itself.

this will be so good when all the bugs are squished, only used it for about 10 minutes and loved it!
