  • AltKeyboard 2 for iOS 7 Now Available in Cydia!


    AltKeyboard 2, which iOS development team Ałtweaks teased on Wednesday, has finally been released in Cydia. The tweak improves the usability of the iOS 7 keyboard to make it easier to input alternative characters, as well as easily move the cursor, and easily select and edit text.

    On Wednesday, Sentry teased a Vine of AltKeyboard 2, which you can view below:



    Accessing the alternative characters on the keyboard is easy; if you see a character you need at the top of a key, just tap on that key and drag upwards to input that character. You can also swipe up from the space bar to reveal options such as selecting text, copying or cutting text, and pasting text. If you want to move the cursor around in the text, you can swipe using either of the two grabbers on the right or left of the keyboard to move it.

    AltKeyboard 2 adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure a number of options:



    From the keyboard pane, you will be able to configure whether alternative keys will appear on the alphabetic keyboard, the numeric keyboard, or the character keyboard. You will also be able to configure whether swiping up on a key will input an alternative character, input a capital letter, or do nothing. You will also be able to configure what will happen when you swipe down on a keyboard key, and configure whether the tweak impacts the lowercase keyboard.

    From the auxiliary alts pane, you will be able to configure the select/copy/cut/paste options from the Space bar, enable or disable undo/redo from the backspace key, enable or disable defining a selection with the shift key, and enable or disable dismissing auto-correct with the return key.

    Finally, from the cursor seeker pane, you will be able to configure the style of the preview and configure the seeking mode.

    AltKeyboard 2 seems to be a very impressive tweak for iPhones and iPod touches running iOS 7; unfortunately, the iPad is not supported at this point in time. If you would like to give AltKeyboard 2 a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for just $2.99 – if you own the original AltKeyboard already, then the tweak is a $1.99 upgrade.

    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.6, iPhone or iPod touch

      Every dev should give a trial of their apps. Otherwise you never know if you will like it or not. Youtube videos are not a good way of seeing how an app works. Sometimes you just to get your hands on it to know if its worth purchasing or not.

      Agreed. And if not a trial, a demo.

      Anyone else notice their speech-to-text not working when Altkeyboard 2 is being used? Mine would stop and exit the Messages app after about 3-4 seconds.

      One of the best tweaks ever, and some of the ideas in here should be basic for ios.
      That said, today i saw there was an update, i installed it, and since then, no altkeyboard 2 anymore.
      So, there is some work left to do.

      Easily one of the best tweak out.. Swipe selection not working now but have to remove it anyway since it has its own swipe select feature which is much better imo..

      I've paid for several keyboard tweaks and this is by far the best one I've ever used and the first I have no regrets paying for. Very quick learning curve. Full featured, it replaces several other apps (swipe select / show case / etc.). Hope to see an option to move the big keyboard viewfinder up where the classic loupe usually appears in a future update. And of course, I wait quite anxiously for the promised iPad compatibility!
