Swype is the ever first touch keyboard which was use to type in a swypy way and was introduced first and lastly to Android. Today the wonderful day came for the Swype and iOS lovers because now you can have Swype right on your iPhone from Cydia.

Now you just need to place the finger on the keyboard once and take it off when you are done with a word, sentence or paragraph. Some of the problems/bugs were identified MobileCruch

There are a few catches:

  • As you may have guessed from all this talk of Cydia (and the fact that it involves modifying the iPhone’s keyboard), your device will need to be jailbroken.
  • A number of behaviors that Android Swypers will have grown accustomed to (such as the blue line that is drawn from letter to letter as you trace) aren’t implemented yet. This is the first release, and is pretty barebones.
  • The hacked keyboard currently only functions in Apple’s pre-installed applications and a very small handful of third party apps. Liu says he’s working on a fix for this.
  • It’s a bit buggy, as is to be expected from a first release

To get Swype on your iPhone first of all your iPhone should be jailbroken. This tweak is available on the following repository


The developer of this tweak’s name is Andrew Liu a.k.a on Twitter “@WyndWarrior“. Add the source (may take sometime) and then search Swype (It’s Free).
