SwipeSelection, based on Daniel Hooper's concept video, is one of the best jailbreak tweaks released this year. The tweak makes editing text on the iPad and iPhone much easier by allowing users to swipe instead of tapping for a more precise cursor drag.
Studio Tentpole has attempted to recreate Kyle Howells’ jailbreak tweak with a new iPad app called SlideWriter. The $0.99 app allows users to swipe above the keyboard, instead of on the keyboard, to edit text. However, Christian Zibreg of iDownloadblog says the app isn't as good as Howells' version.
