Do you remember the awesome video we showed you this morning that portrayed how text editing on the iPad should be? It involved dragging small blue cursors to highlight a portion of text and several other gestures to make editing text on the iPad much easier. Luckily, whether Apple decides to act on those cool features or not, it looks like jailbreakers may get a chance to play with the features soon. There’s a new jailbreak tweak called “SwipeSelection” that works much like the mockup from this morning. You can see Benjamin showing it off above.

SwipeSelection should be available on the BigBoss repo as the developer, Kyle Howells, plans to submit it tomorrow.  “This is what Apple needs to implement in iOS 6.”

Update: Now available in the BigBoss repo! There are a few early impressions in the comments.
