crap blurb, jump to how to get it.
I believe the phrase is: “O…M…G…”.
Ok, perhaps that was a little over-exaggerative. For anyone who’s used an Android device, the wondrous little app ‘Swype’ will be nothing new. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that it’s a pretty clever way of typing in certain scenarios. Click the image below to learn about Swype.
Well, it’s finally available for iPhones thanks to WyndWarrior (a.k.a. Andrew Liu). It’s not an official app, but an excellent port that looks and functions similarly to (and in some ways, better than) the official Swype app.
How to get it
Firstly, you need to have Jailbroken your iDevice (of course).
Once that’s done, go to Cydia > Manage > Sources > Edit > Add and add the following source:
Once the source has been added and updated open it (wyndwarrior – MyRepoSp…) to find iSwipe. From there, you can install iSwipe (Swype for iPhone :)
Bear in mind that this is still in beta (see the message at the bottom of iSwipe’s installation page) so it’s buggy. Potentially once you’ve gotten used to it you could completely rely on it, but I still find it makes too many mistakes for day-to-day use.
