    Yes me too. Usually I hold off on upgrading tweaks just to be safe, unless of course the update fixes a known bug which I'm experiencing. But I've never had any problems with swipeselection so I said what the heck and installed the update. I'm now wishing I stuck to my old habits and waited a little while before updating. Hopefully the dev will fix it soon. It's making it really annoying to post on this forum and text my friends.

    Get SwipeShiftCaret for now as a replacement. I couldn't handle the mistakes anymore and had to uninstall. :p

    SwipeSelection and NCSettings were the only 2 updates I installed today. Terrible choice on my part.

    I've always used SwipeShiftCaret

    As annoying as it is in some stuff, I can't give up the ability to hold the ?123 button and drag to what I want to type.

    SwipeSelection doesn't allow that, afaik

    That was fixed in today's update actually.

    I used to use swipeshiftcaret back when it first came out. But because you must swipe where the words appear, it was really hard for me to use when inputting text in certain fields while using a browse. Because of this, I had to switch to swipe selection. I love swipeshiftcaret. Its a great package.

    Hahaha yea in the changelog it says "fixed the "123" button slide to quickly select a number". Is that what you're referring to? I am aware of that keyboard feature but I never use it. I should prolly get into the habit though...

    Yes. I type a lot of stuff ending in 1 number so the quick slide is SOO convenient

    Not only that, the Boover update caused issues with Cydia saying "Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (35: Resource temporarily unavailable)"

    In addition to that, badges would no longer show. Quick google found me the previous version so I'm just going to stick with that.

    There's an update that just came out but in the change log it doesn't mention the autocorrect problem. Does anyone know if it fixed it?
