Swype is one of the best Keyboard Apps that is available to Android smartphones and tablet users. It lets you use your one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard to input words faster and easier than other data input methods – at over 40 words per minute. It is designed to work across a variety of devices such as phones, tablets, game consoles, kiosks, televisions, virtual screens, and more.

Officially Swype is not available for Apple iOS devices like iPhone and iPad, but if your iPhone or iPad is jailbroken then you can use a unofficial port of Swype on your jailbroken iOS device.

The unofficial Swype port for jailbroken iPhone and iPad, iSwipe can be installed on from the Cydia store. It can be installed even on the latest iOS 5 without any issues if you have jailbroken iOS5 using tethered Jailbreak. Just search iSwipe in Cydia store. If it gives you no results found, then you need to add the respective repository source to Cydia Sources. Just add the following URL as a new repository in Cydia sources.


Now, just search iSwipe in Cydia and you can now install the iSwipe Cydia App easily. Just click on the Install button and the installation will be over in next few seconds.

After you are finished with the install, your existing keyboard will now act as Swype keyboard and you can use the swipe gestures with your continous finger movement to type faster.

This unofficial port of swype iSwipe is still in beta and will work only with Apple Apps, not every App available in Appstore. Hopefully with future releases, support for other apps from Appstore too will come. Still, if your iPhone or iPad is already Jailbroken, you must install this Cydia tweak to get more from your iOS device keyboard.
