    Swype is a popular typing method on the Android platform that allows you to type on your keyboard without having to lift your finger as often. This feature has been ported to iOS and is currently in Beta as a Cydia Tweak. The iSwipe beta works fairly well, you can at least get an image of what it can look like in it's final form. You simply slide to the letters in the word you are spelling instead of tapping all the letters. A blue line will follow your finger to make it a bit easier, it helps a lot. The beta is currently free within the developers repo below, but I wouldn't keep it on your device for long, after more testing, it interferes with a lot of typing.

      It appeared that about 85-percent of the words were wrong so I'll pass on the download. However, if iOS5 integration makes it work, then great!

      I don't know if the OP knows this, but this isn't an actual Swype release and the app in questions is currently under an investigation as being a possible "hacked" version of the real swype.

      And from Swype's CEO:

      This is Phil we're talking about here, of course he knows it's not an official release! Haha

      LOL, it's just that the title is misleading. No need for Swype to get a bad name for something they had no part in. Apparently iSwype isn't quite up to par in terms of how good it works in comparison to Swype.

      No way this thing is hacked. It is too goofy.

      Her it what swipe lookslik whe used a advertised.
      Above should say "here is what iswipe should look like when used as advertised"

      If you know the tricks to make it work right, then it will do ok.Probably not worth the extra time and effort it takes to make it come out right but, being a droider, I'm addicted.

      After a punctuation you have to skip two spaces or it will back up to the punctuation.Like this.
      Skip a line to make a new paragraph and it will back it up to the previous line like this.

      I very nicely shows your current and last word spaced but if you fail to tap the space bar every time you type a word, it throws the words back together likethis just did.

      It will rarely get it right when ashore (had to separately type out "a short") word such as a, an, it is used and will join it to the next word. So that, for instance, "is used" comes out "issued"
      a word=word or award
      It is= itits
      Sobe ready to type out any one or two letter word and the word following.

      As many times as we type the word "to" it always wants too use the word "too"

      Nevertheless, it's better than it started out and its going to get better still.
