    Unlike Apple, the jailbreak community has solved the lack of keyboard choices... With the update to AltKeyboard for iOS 7. Was just checking to see what keyboard jailbreak users are using. At this point for me, it's a toss up between NinType & AltKeyboard 2.

    But there's PredictiveKeyboard, iKeyWi and I'm sure there's others that I haven't mention.

    Nin sucked last time I tried it. Gonna buy AltKeyboard 2 now and try it out.

    As far as I'm concerned, the jailbreak still hasn't given us great options like on Android.

    When was the last time you used Nin? The dev has made improvements and is continuing to iron out any issue a user might have...

    In regards to Android, I've had a Note 3.. Only 2 great options were Swype & SwiftKey. And NinType is similar to both those keyboards. But in terms of choices, Android has tons of choices to choose from compared to the Jailbreak. But not many great options to choose from..IMO.

    About 2 months maybe. Are you using Nin daily? Is it the one from his myrepospace repo? Which version are you using?

    I'm on Version 0.0.1-1178.

    I've been using it every since it was announced. Having had month tour with the Note 3 and came back to the iPhone.. I enjoyed SwiftKey.

    I'm glad to have NinType since it's similar to SwiftKey in terms of Swipe capabilities.

    I go between exKey and Fleksy. I have TextExpander too, but that only works in the apps that include the SDK for it.

    I like SwiftKey, considering we have the Note app, I wonder why nobody has tried getting it to work with other apps. I seriously only liked the different color choices when I used it in Android though.

    I loved AltKeyboard, but AltKeyboard 2 doesn't work for 7.1 beta 3. Like most tweaks out now lol and I can't go back to 7.0.6 so I miss out on a lot lately.
    Doubt it'll get updated for it so if you can use it enjoy it for me lol.
    Anyone know of any alternatives that do work on the betas?

    I have a fair few keyboard tweaks:

    DismissMyKeyboard
    SlideCut
    ReturnDismiss
    ShowCase
    SwipeSelection
    SwipeShiftCaret


    And, while it’s not strictly a keyboard tweak, Platinum is excellent.

    I use this to keep my keyboard as the stock white iOS 7 keyboard in all apps. ;)

    used nin for a few days recently with the newest update. i like it, but it gets annoying when its constantly autocorrecting my words. i think my 2 favorite things about it are the backspace function, and the sounds...
