The current auto-correct method on iOS is often a source of frustration for many users who simply do not find the process efficient. The feature’s predictive text functionality, allowing you to tap “space” to insert the currently suggested word, has proven to have a bigger learning curve for the average user than Apple may have anticipated. At least one developer thinks a method similar to BlackBerry 10’s new predictive typing feature would work better. There’s a new jailbreak tweak called “Octopus Keyboard” that brings similar functionality to iOS users, which allows them to swipe up to select and insert suggested words. It is still a work in progress, but you can check out the current build from developer Mario Hros in the video above.
