‘Space+’ brings desktop spacebar functionality to iOS

By , Jun 25, 2013

When you press and hold the spacebar on your desktop or laptop, it causes a space to be continually inputted until you release the spacebar. On iOS’ virtual keyboard, it doesn’t work quite that way. Instead of continually inputting a space, tapping and holding the spacebar inputs a single space and then stops. If you want to put in a series of consecutive spaces, you must continually tap the spacebar key on your virtual keyboard.

Space+ is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to adapt desktop spacebar key functionality. Take a look at our full video walkthrough inside.

Space+ is an extremely simple tweak, in fact, once you install it there are no options or settings to configure. After Space+ is installed, simply tap and hold the spacebar key on your virtual keyboard. You’ll notice that a space will be continually inserted as long as you hold the key, not unlike your desktop computer.

Space+ is a jailbreak tweak that’s available right now on Cydia’s BigBoss repo for $0.99. Do you consider it to be worth the asking price?

    very pricey… but then again, finding the right price for a tweak like that…

  • Bobby McBobson

    Yes! I was wondering if there was a tweak like that and I wanted this. However, I don’t feel like paying a dollar. I know maybe I’m kind of cheap.

    • Diego Gastón Milano

      No, you’re not. I have the money for this but it’s not worthy of a dollar for a such a tweak. Maybe if they offered this one for free and add more features to a ‘pro version” (thus purchasable) of it, I may change my mind.

      • Bobby McBobson

        Yeah that would be a good idea but I don’t think there are many more features to be added.

      • Diego Gastón Milano

        You would be surprised. Creativity has no limits!

      • Bobby McBobson

        Yeah that’s true!

  • Sue

    Perhaps it would be worth the price if it could be able to do the same thing with everything else like letters and exclamation point!!!!

    • Diego Gastón Milano

      I’m wondering how come no one came up with the idea of making the cursor move faster when deleting or something of that nature. I use SwipeSelection but not always for that matter, I still use the backspace key and sometimes I’d love it to delete words (much) faster (and NO, I wouldn’t pay for a tweak which did that only!).
      Maybe if Delete World were updated to support iOS6 AND SwipeSelection… ;)

      Agreed.

    Normally, I’d pay for all my tweaks (spent $100+ on nothing but tweaks), no matter how simple they are, but I would definitely not pay for this, even though it can be very handy and convenient to have. Sorry, but this isn’t worth a dollar, it should be free.

    • Jason Duong

      I wouldn’t pay for this at all as well.

      • Kevin Guzman

        If it had more features, like Sue mentioned, then I would consider it.

  • Gorgonphone

    simple but effective i guess..

  • shvn

    These days i see that all the good but simple tweaks are not free. seems
    that jailbreaking will be nothing in future but to add a different
    pricy market like appstore on iOS

    And it’s only 0.99!
    Long Time have i been waiting for something like this.
