Swype Gets Ported to iOS Devices

Swype Gets Ported to iOS Devices

Posted July 7, 2011 at 8:20pm by iClarified · 13576 views
Swype, a touchscreen keyboard input method that allows users to enter words by sliding a finger from letter to letter, has been ported to iOS, reports ModMyi.

The input method was ported by Andrew Liu (@WyndWarrior) and is still in its early beta stages, with a few limitations:

● The Swype beta does not work in AppStore applications or Cydia (only in stock iOS currently - he is looking to fix it today)
● No blue line to indicate where you are swiping

You can try Swype Beta v0.1 by adding the http://wynd.x10.xm repository to Cydia.

One slight amendment; the repo address listed on this article is actually incorrect. The end repo address should be .mx & NOT .xm
