    This is Genius!

    If anyone bought this already, mind telling me if it works with ColorKeyboard? or SwipeSelect? I'm assuming swipeselect won't work. Probably switch to Swipeshiftcaret. but colorkeyboard most important. Thanks in advance.

    Edit: I lied, wasn't able to see the comments on in Flipboard, but just read it. I'll just put the answers here if anyone is interested:

    ColorKeyboard:
    Kinda. The letters are perma black, so you need to use a light coloured keyboard.

    SwipeSelect:
    Yep, works.

    First hand experience?:
    Flawless. I'll attach how it looks with a different font and ColorKeyboard.

    Works with SwipeSelection
    Doesn't show the font accurately on ColorKeyboard, you'll have to use a lightly themed colorkeyboard to see the others.

    Doesnt work with Octopus Keyboard or Touchpal either in case someone asks.

    It worked for you with swipeselection? I could not get the flick mode to work without disabling it. It also would not let me select the normal alternate letters you normally get when you hold down the keys on the keyboard. Once I disabled swipeselection it worked perfectly.

    EDIT: Never mind. It started doing the same thing with swipeselection disabled. I guess it just has some bugs that need to be worked out.

    I was thinking this when I saw it in Cydia earlier.

    yes, flawlesssly

    edit: I lied, it doesn't. I just didn't notice it. Basically renders ShowCase useless, like it doesn't exist.

    I found the opposite of showcase, unfortunately.
    Regardless of install order, showcase is broken once I installed altkeyboard on iPhone 5 (6.1).

    Hmm, I'm running a 4S but don't expect this to make a difference.
    I'll give it a try anyway - if not now it probably will work with showcase in future update.

    Yes, unfortunately doesn't work.
    Dev knows about it and has announced to take care with the next update.

    A3Tweaks releases another paid tweak without supporting their older tweaks... Axis received zero updates, Luna received basically nothing.

    Tried it, but honestly nothing beats iKeywi which I can configure the location of the keys and multiple shortcuts like smilies, etc. It's simply faster than altkeyboard

    Your probably right.
    Contacted the dev on this issue some time ago - never heard of him ever since. Another 0,99$ down the drain as I will not do without ShowCase.

    Actually, although this doesn't prove much. He does respond, but he does take a while.
