Swipe anywhere on the keyboard to move the cursor


SwipeSelection and SwipeSelection Pro are tweaks for jailbreaken iOS devices I created in 2012 based on a concept video by Daniel Hooper.

SwipeSelection allows you to move the cursor and select text on iPhones and iPads using keyboard gestures instead of tapping and holding directly on the text itself.

The free version of SwipeSelection works on iOS 4-9+ and is open source on Github.
