    It is perhaps the best tweak available to date...on Big Boss.

    I dont know if it is me, but I have noticed that I am missing some keys when I type now. Apparently I have the bad habit of sliding my fingers when I type and this tweak makes it more evident. I will have to be more careful. It would be nice a setting to adjust the sensitivity of the "slide".

    Still an amazing tweak.

    I like this tweak, but I'm having some issues with it. It works ok in most data entry situations, but not all. As I'm typing this message, the gestures don't work (I'm using Atomic Browser) . It also does not work when entering text into a text document with Quickoffice. Oddly though, the gestures work when editing a Quickoffice spreadsheet.

    I also seem to drop characters occasionally.

    I have dropping characters also. The reason seems to be that we type a key but move slghtly the finger, hence the movement is recognized as "slide". That is why I would like a setting to manage how sensible it is. I have not tested it yet on quickoffice, will do now.

    The only thing I can suggest is to contact the developer of SwipeSelection. Maybe he or she can update it to work with the app. Sorry, but that's all I've got.

    I Love This Tweak, but the Dropping Characters Due To Sliding Fingers Has Made This Tweak Unusable For Me. I Had To Uninstall It. :-(((:)(

    Tried keeping this tweak but im dropping entirely too many characters. It needs a type of sensitivity adjustment or maybe and activation mode.

    Try SwipeShiftCaret guys. I can't give it a full review because I just started testing it today but you swipe on the text field instead of the actual kb. So far there are no character drops but it doesn't seem to be working as I'm writing this reply via the forums app so i'll have to see.

    Does this tweak now work together with "octopus keyboard"? I read that the developer was working on making it compatible.

    Anyone know?
