A few days ago we told you that developer Andrew Liu (@WyndWarrior) has decided to port Swype to the Jailbreaking community. He is currently beta testing Swype for iOS iDevices which he calls iSwipe. In the initial release of iSwipe things were pretty limited. There were quite a few stability bugs and no path tracing (the line following your swyping). In a recent update by Andrew, however, things are looking much better. There is patch tracing, stability seems to be improved and accuracy seems to be improved also.
If you are still unsure of what Swype is and how it works we suggest your read our previous post.
Typing iJailbreak through iSwype
If you are also interested in trying out the iSwipe tweak all you need to do is add Andrew’s source below into Cydia (Manage > Sources > Edit > Add):
While I must admit I was skeptical iSwipe would be something I would actually use in the future. With a bit of practice and hopefully some improved accuracy I may just hang on to iSwipe for awhile longer (the great thing about iSwipe is that is still does not interfere with the default tap to type method of typing everyone is used to). Let us know if you are going to try out iSwipe for your iDevice in the comments section below…
