Android is an aspiring operating system and the number of features and customizations are endless. Although the inspiration might have come from iPhone there is a huge difference between the two. Android Market features all sorts of apps and has literally no limitation on the level of customization. On the other hand Apple has always been reluctant on accepting such extreme customizations like altering the keyboard or home screen etc.
One of the very popular app for Android devices is the Swype keyboard that lets you type flawlessly just by swiping your finger over characters. There is no official app of the same for Apple devices but if you have a jailbroken device then we have a solution to this problem.
iSwipe is an alternative for Swype and is available on Cydia store for free. To download it enter iSwipe in Cydia search without space.
Immediately after its install your keyboard will be customized. Now you can drag your finger over characters and you will see a following line towards each character. This way you can type conveniently.
But since it would not perfectly recognize what you are typing each time, the tweak offers recommendations just above the keyboard so that in case the recognized word is different from what you wish to type, you can immediately tap on the desired word from the recommendations.
A very unique feature about this app is iSwipe Add for which an icon is created on the homescreen. The use of this tweak kicks in when you have a unique word that you type often and is not a dictionary word. When you would try to enter the word using swipe action it will definitely not recognize it but if you add the word to the tweak’s bulilt-in dictionary, it will start showing the same in the results.
For example if i want to type Appstouse, which is not a dictionary word, i can first open iSwipe Add, enter Appstouse and add it to the dictionary. Now whenever you will try to type this very added word, it will immediately be entered.
App Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Conclusion: With iSwipe typing would become much more fun.
