    Very disappointed that Apple decide to not provide the Trackpad Shortcut feature to iPhones earlier than the 6S.

    Is there an alternative iOS keyboard available that moves the cursor with a swipe? Or would it be possible for a developer to create an alternative keyboard that does exactly what Trackpad Shortcut does on an iPad without 3D Touch?

    Swipe selection is available for jailbreakers. Swipe Cursor is available on the app store, but doesnt work properly.

    Are there any others?

    Quite limited for now, since you can only swipe back or forth, but it does seem like the best substitute for now.

    Thanks for that. Next lacks the features of the landscape keyboard on iPhone 6. Don't like that text suggestions at top of keyboard can't be removed. Will check out updates though.

    Amazing there isn't a solution to this.
