The jailbreak community didn’t have to wait for iOS 8 to bring third-party keyboard support to iPhone and iPad. For several years now, jailbreakers have been treated to some clever keyboard tweaks to improve on the usability of the devices.
Two of these tweaks, SwipeSelection and AltKeyboard 2, somewhat overlapped each other’s functionalities when released a few months ago, forcing jailbreak users to choose either one or the other.
With both tweaks now having been updated to support each other, this issue is a thing of the past, as SwipeSelection and AltKeyboard can now run side by side properly…
In order to be able to run both tweaks together, you must update to their latest versions. For SwipeSelection, that is 1.4.2-1 or 0.9.6-1 if using the pro version. As for AltKeyboard 2, the required version is 1.0.8.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the tweaks, I suggest you have a look at Jeff’s demos.
This is SwipeSelection Pro:
And here is AltKeyboard 2:
I’m sure we can all agree it is nice to finally see these two tweaks play nice together.
Do you use one or both keyboard tweaks? If so, tell us what you think about these updates.
