Swype Gets Ported To Jailbroken iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

By  at Friday, July 08, 2011  

If you've been an Android user at some point in time, you would know what Swype is. Basically, its a patented technology that lets users type on virtual keyboards without having to lift their fingers. Just swype your fingers around the alphabets that make up a word you want to type. Now in form of a jailbreak tweak, Swype debuts on jailbroken iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

This jailbreak tweak is described as:
With one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard, the patented technology enables users to input words faster and easier than other data input methods—at over 40 words per minute.
40 words per minute! That is some serious fast typing, now who wouldn't love that? However, one should bear in mind that this Swype iOS port isn't official. Though you'll be able to start using this typing method once you have installed this tweak and have restarted your device. Our advice would be that you turn autocorrect off while using Swype, as it would definitely cause a bit of nuisance.

To get Swype for jailbroken iOS devices, first add this repository in Cydia: wynd.x0.mx/repo

If you don't know how to jailbreak your device, look no further as the latest JailbreakMe 3.0 release makes it very easy for anyone to jailbreak their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Follow our tutorial given here to jailbreak your iOS device easily.
