New KeySwipe jailbreak tweak lets you switch between keyboards with a swipe


KeySwipe 2

I don’t know about you, but I find it kind of tedious to switch between keyboards on iOS. I find it tedious, because have to tap that little language button, which requires a precise tap on the keyboard.

Instead, wouldn’t it be nice if you could just perform a simple swipe gesture to switch between the keyboards that you have configured? A new tweak called KeySwipe lets you do just that.

Once you install KeySwipe—available on Cydia’s BigBoss repo for $0.99—you’ll find a preference panel in the stock Settings app. This preference panel contains a single kill-switch, which is enabled by default.


To use KeySwipe, open an app that invokes the keyboard, and perform a swipe-up or swipe-down gesture on the keyboard. Once you do, the keyboard will switch to the next or previous one in the list of configured keyboards; simple, and to the point.

If you want a more intuitive way to switch between keyboards in iOS, then you may want to try KeySwipe. At only $0.99, there’s not much investment here, and the return on investment may be quite high depending on how often you switch between keyboards on iOS.
