    i installed it and uninstalled it after a few days. You can't type as fast because it detects it as a swipe sometimes. Very difficult to type that way. They should have an option where you press and hold shift to begin swiping, or something to that effect.

    That has been my experience with it also. I have had to correct a LOT more with it than I did before. I'm probably going to uninstall it.

    Uninstalled it after a day. It created far too many errors. Hope they can fix it as I'd glad pay for it, were it to work.

    Did they update this yet? I installed when it came out but it was just too sensitive and actually made typing harder. Great idea but wondering when the dev will update this.

    Not all it's cracked up to be, like quasar, the videos only show what they want you to see.

    I also uninstalled it after a few days. It works brilliantly on an iPhone but not on an iPad where you type with multiple fingers on each hand; registers too many key presses as selections and usually results in more correction that it prevents.

    To all those who didn't like swipeselect, try swipeshiftcaret. You swipe on the typing are instead if the keyboard. It's much easier to use without the typos.

    Yup, same here - loved at first and, then, got tired of the unregistered taps.

    Swipeshiftcaret is great, I debated on wether to install it for a long time, I'm glad I finally did.

    Loving SwipeSelect!

    God only knows why Apple don't bring these kind of useful (being the operative word) tweaks out with an iOS update :rolleyes: Instead we get new maps and Facebook integration or whatever it is :confused:

    idk if its because i have fat fingers or what, but a lot of the times when typing my cursor would end up at the begging of the sentence, in the middle of typing a sentence. Got annoying and i uninstalled it.

    Just tested Swipeshiftcaret last night, and I've found that i love Swipeselect more, it's easier to always scroll in the same place and seems like it conflict with note taking app like Notability, I'm unable to draw across the screen.

    swipeselects sucks..it messed up my keyboard, made it jumpy as hell..

    ----------

    it would not suprise me if apple had something to do with cydia, cheap/free development....i bet you the could make cydia etc unworkable on mac products but they wont, cos thats where they get all their ideas..nazis they be..

    I tried it too..... I switched back to SwipeSelect after an hour or so of trial and error. I didn't like moving off the keyboard and onto the screen to move the cursor. If I hadn't come across SwipeSelect, I would of been happy with SwipeShiftCaret.... I did though so I'm sticking with SS :)
