    It looks good but I think I will wait for some more reviews first

    No and no. Also it disables "auto correct."

    Not sure what the dev was thinking by releasing this for $5. Stupid and absurd.

    I was worried about that. Not worth it then in my opinion.

    Does it work with SwipeSelection?

    I actually used that before SwipeSelection came out. It worked but not everywhere like SwipeSelection. My only problem with SwipeSelection is that when you're typing fast sometimes the cursor jumps around.

    Swipeshiftcaret is my favorite. Ive been using it since the day it hit cydia. I use it more than any other tweak because I'm always typing something lol

    Swipe selection feels better and a little more natural (although swiping the text field isn't exactly strange) but it was always glitching on me and the cursor was jumping all over the place. It drove me insane.

    Yeah $5 seems a bit steep. Is there a free trial? With autocorrect disabled it aint looking good.

    Does anyone know if it works with whatsapp?

    I'm back to SwipeShiftCaret after having to restore my phone. Seems to have improved. Gonna stick with it.

    OK Heads up ppl! I dropped the five and get the tweak in hope of next release that makes bite compatible BUT..................

    Octopus keyboard works with BiteSMS AND ikeywi! just remember to respring after downloading the license to make it work in the QuickReply and QuickCompose...

    great tweak! and no lag so far while typing!

    I paid the $4.99 to get the license... It works well with BiteSMS and just like what the other guy mentioned, No lag so far. Its a very good tweak especially when typing longer words. I like the option in the user dictionary to learn words from messages, names and contacts. I wish it was a little bit cheaper.

    It definitely works with BiteSMS quick compose and quick reply. Not sure if it's faster than Swype, but at least it's not all or nothing. I can still type normally with this, whereas with swype if you type normally (not swiping) you will type all kinds of wrong words.

    I think this is as fast as swyping. When I had my G2X, most of the time 2 out of the 5 words I swype are wrong so I had to go back and remove them which doesn't help with fast typing.

    Time will tell but I think this is just as fast as swyping IMHO.

    Great little tweak, only issue ive found is the word suggestions on the top row are half obscured when using the screen in landscape mode.

    Oh, and the auto correct but that's been mentioned before.

    Isn't it kind of an auto-correct already? I mean, it suggests words as you type them just like auto-correct does (only difference seems to be that you can't click an "x" if you don't want the suggested word applied).

    I'm not knocking it, I think it's a great tweak.
