    Might have been covered, might be well known, but I didn't know about it till this latest jailbreak.

    Best thing it does...allows you to move the cursor in your text by simply swiping around on the keyboard. Had to explain, but try it. Getting the cursor into the right place in the middle of a text to add a word is a PITA in iOS especially if you have fat fingers or have a case like a otter box. This makes it so much nicer.

    This is the single one thing I really miss from being jailbroken. I may have to JB again...

    Completely agree. SwipeSelection is a good companion with ShowCase.

    Also highly recommended is the commercial "Pro" version. I've posted quite a lot on it in another thread here.

    With the main improvements in iOS 7, SwipeSelection is the reason i jailbreak.

    Of course I do take advantage of a lot of other great tweaks.

    I've tried swipe selection twice on my phone. Must just be how I type or use the keyboard but I find that the cursor often ends up lines away from where I'm typing. Like it's picking up inputs that I'm not choosing to make. But people rave about the app so I must be the weirdo ;)

    You must drag your fingers across the keyboard slightly when you type... it works absolutely fine :)

    Just found out about this tweak recently. Can't believe I lived without it before.

    Nice when it works, but I have found that it messes with normal typing occasionally.

    I like the tweak too. Sometime when I type too fast I'd drag the screen so a letter jumps in a previous word.
