    The Swype keyboard from android has been released for iPad and iPhone through Cydia!
    Works just like Swype for android.

    Slide your finger over the keyboard to each key. For some reason, it likes to ignore spaces, so you have to go in and manually add spaces, which really defeats the purpose.

    I wish it would draw like android. There are no settings to configure.

    Download it from here;

    Or, add this Cydia repo;

    It's really annoying.

    Before Swype;
    Hello everybody! How are you?

    After with Swype;
    Helleverybodyhowaryou


    Swype sucks. :(

    Hopefully an update will make it better.

    Pretty sure you read somewhere, hopefully you did, and hopefully you will in the future, understand what you read before downloading, it's a "beta", saying might be buggy.

    Odd, I can get "Hello everybody. How are you" if I lift off in between words, and I'm on 5-Row keyboard.
    This tweak is not for me though. I'm not a swyper...

    I have android phones and I just can't make my self get use to it at all. Even that I had tried in multiples occasions, it's just not for me. However a lot of people love it.

    I put this on my iphone4 and it's a good start, but not ready for daily use(hence the beta.) It gets confused with words easily. It is a great start though. I have to admit when I had my Droid I loved the swype keyboard, one of the few things I miss about my Droid.

    I, for one, really like swype. I had never used it before getting my DroidX but found it dramatically reduced typing errors. Dunno how it will fare with the bigger keyboard. I suspect I will prefer it when the iPad2 is in portrait view but prefer standard typing in landscspe.

    There's an update for swype. Functioning much much better after update.

    However as for now installing 5 row kb and swype together caused my backspace key to fail when pressing and holding. Have to keep pressing it to clear text.

    Removing swype solves the problem.

    This swypie things is like switching to a Dvorak for me. Sounds like such a good idea, too bad my fingers are long since hardwired for the old way.

    Swype is updated!
    Now it shows where your finger has been!
    And it fixes the space issue!

    Can I have 5-row keyboard installed too but I dont have to use them both at the same time? Like I can use swipe, then decide if I like it or not and then switch back to 5 row keyboard or is that not possible just want to be sure
    Also want to know if this is version 0.1.0 since that is the only one I see when I do a search in Cydia
