SwipeSelection: The iPad Text Editing Concept Becomes a Reality [VIDEO]

by on May 4th, 2012

Earlier we saw a concept video that showed how text editing on the iPad could be improved, created by Daniel Hooper. Now, that concept has come to life thanks to jailbreak developer Kyle Howells. He has created a usable tweak of the concept called SwipeSelection, reports iDownloadBlog:

But it’s one thing to see a demo video, and a whole another thing to actually use a workable version of said concept. Let me tell you, this is what Apple needs to implement in iOS 6. It works extremely well, so much so, that I was totally used to it within minutes. SwipeSelection feels incredibly native, and perfectly natural.

Even better is the fact that Howells isn’t seeking to make any profit off of his concept realization. He plans to submit it to Cydia tomorrow, and will offer it free of charge to the jailbroken masses.

Check out the video below:

SwipeSelection will be free and should be available in Cydia tomorrow. An iPhone version will be available as well. Nice work, Kyle!
