Delete Word In Both Direction When Typing Text On iPhone

One of the biggest problem that one faces with any of your apple device’s keyboard is the inability to delete characters and full words on the right and left of the cursor. Most of the time people are seen wasting time and losing patience when something goes wrong while typing.

Delete World is one of the best apps so far discovered on Cydia and it comes as a boon for all those apple device users who love texting a lot. The special thing about the tweak is that unlike the stock delete feature which only allows deleting characters towards the left of the cursor, this very app lets you delete words as well as characters towards the left as well as right of the cursor. This gives you the same functionality as seen in the computers with the Ctrl+Delete and Ctrl+Backspace button combinations.

The app could be found on Cydia with the keywords Delete World.


Alike most of the apps on Cydia this also does not put any icon on the homescreen and immediately modifies your default keyboard to enable its functionality. To access the settings of the same to make necessary changes one can look for it in the stock iPhone settings.


In the settings one can enable or disable the delete world tweak and also the modification done to the delete button. Other sections include back word delete, forward word delete and forward letter delete.


The app gives you complete control over its functionality and one can enable or disable the backward and forward word delete separately and can also change the support button, method and whitespace delete.


Besides the support button,as mentioned above, you can also change the method from multitouch to swiping or tapping.


You can also set what you want to do when deleting a space between words and instead set them to all spaces or one space.
