Jailbreak Tweak : SwipeSelection
The SwipeSelection tweak is one of the recent few that has gained attention due to the fact that it is a package that was born from a concept produced by the design community. The tweak is designed to make text editing, highlighting and selecting a lot easier by using various different gestures. After installation, the user can swipe their finger on the on-screen keyboard to move the cursor around the screen, and holding the shift key and dragging at the same time will allow the user to select a string of text on-screen. SwipeSelection is available as a free of charge download from the BigBoss repository.
The swipe gestures feel more at home in the iOS environment because they’re so much more fluid. Having to reach out and tap on the text can lead to innacurate placement of the cursor and to top it all off your finger gets in the way of seeing what you’re doing. Because SwipeSelection has you select text from the keyboard area, you can always see what you are doing because your finger is never hovering over the text.
