Smooth Cursor 5

When I first heard about SmoothCursor, I didn’t imagine that it would have much of an effect on the typing experience. While it’s true that it doesn’t have any real bearing on the actual input process, it definitely has a noticeable look from a visual standpoint.

SmoothCursor borrows the same cursor movement popularized by Microsoft Office. Instead of a cursor with well-defined keyframes of animation, the cursor features smoothly animated motion as you type. 

Describing SmoothCursor doesn’t do it the justice it deserves, so be sure to watch the video above to see the difference between the cursor without SmoothCursor installed versus after SmoothCursor is installed. I think you’ll find that the difference is stark.

I personally think that SmoothCursor is an awesome little tweak that makes a big difference when it comes to cursor animation. For that reason, I think I’m going to keep it installed on my daily driver.

SmoothCuror is available for free on the BigBoss repo, and once you install it, it just starts working. What do you think about it?

    lmfao. Blinking cursor? Another built in feature Android already has.

    • iOS has blinking cursor, alright. The tweak is about “smooth”.

      Thanks for coming to an iOS blog to tell us about Android like we care.

    • Manuel Molina

      Is that an observation or did you find you had nothing to do today but report an android feature on an iOS blog? 🙂

    • Thanks for wasting your time here 🙂

  • :))))))))))

    Can you please review Torqueo, Fuse, MusicButton or HideMe 8 or ClassicFolders

    Looks like it’s lagging to be honest. Kind of annoying.

    • James G

      Yeah, the cursor is always seemingly behind what’s being typed and “catching up” instead of staying ahead.

    How many tweeks do you have on your phone Jeff? I have been watching you on here for years and I alway wondered how you have your phone set up for everyday use? Love every video you make. You have guided me from my first jailbreak since I had the iPhone 3gs and have looked at iDB every single day since. You guys do great work and great podcasts as well. Thanks for all the help over the years.

  • Sukhdeep

    Jeff which keyboard tweak you use like autocorrect or autospell seem in video ..?

  • Brian Brown

    “plain of ice” ?

  • Aric Bolf

    I don’t like it because the cursor is always over the top of the letter you just typed. It forces you to type another key before knowing if the one you just typed is the correct one.

    is it compatible with “SwipeSelection” tweak?????
