Octopus Keyboard Stories February 4, 2013

If you have not jailbroken an iOS device in a while, you might wonder what all the excitement is surrounding today’s launch of the evasi0n jailbreak tool for iOS 6. (Note: Some people are having issues with the default Apple Weather app after install.)

Over the years, many features that were once jailbreak-only made their way to iOS or via third parties through the App Store. However, there are still many things you can do with jailbreak tweaks that aren’t possible on non-jailbroken devices.

BlackBerry 10’s predictive text keyboard comes to iOS with Octopus jailbreak tweak

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.
