    Question Change Default iPhone Keyboard to Swype/Shapewriter
    Hello - I'm a huge fan of shapewriter and I'm interested in finding a way to replace the keyboard in all apps with the swype keyboard that shapewriter uses.

    My phone is jailbroken of course ... but I'm not a programmer, so I'm looking for ideas on how to complete this and I'd like to team up with a developer who's published through Cydia to create something. I know many others would be interested in this once they've tried it.

    Here's more info about Swype and Shapewriter if you don't know what it is:
    Move over T9, here comes Swype

    Thanks!

    No response thus far ... as an update, Shapewriter is now working on an iPhone developer SDK to utilize their keyboard in official apps. I'm interested in creating a Cydia app that replaces the iphone UI keyboard with the Shapewriter keybaord. Anyone out there experienced in developing Cydia apps that is interested in collaborating?

    Hi,

    I'd also be very interested in this, I've become seriously addicted to using ShapeWriter and having to cut/paste into other apps, frankly, sucks.

    Thanks,

    I would love this too. I really hope either Swype, Shapewriter or Apple are listening. Because we are missing out without this keyboard...

    Most people prob think it would suck by reading a description of this app. But I used it on my friends HTC touch2 and its amazing. It just knows what you are typing...

    Simply AMAZING!

    Does anyone know if this will just be another appstore app or if it will be a cydia app that actually makes slideit the default keyboard?

    Wink Shape writer..
    If you go to apptrackr, you'll get ShapeWriter Pro 2.1, the latest is 3.2..

    This app will more or less work similarly.

    Regards

    Exactly! I'd pay $$$ for this functionality, it'd make using the iPhone much much better! Shapewriter is out there, I really hope someone starts working on this!

    I totally thought this was a gimmick until I played with it on my friends Evo.

    I was typing pretty accurately and quickly in a matter of minutes.

    I used an Android OS phone for a few weeks while my iPhone was getting replaced. Swype almost made me want to switch phones. It's so much easier!

    i've used swype on a nexus and slideit on a nokia 5800. best app if you type on your keyboard , especially for sms.

    i just recently switched from my nokia 5800 to 3gs and i really do miss the ease of typing without keying every letter....

    this is a must have for iphone...

    You don't need apptrackr to get Shapewriter. It's in the itunes app store. The free version does not allow for text messaging though, so you have to shell out $7.99. Plus it isn't intergrated into the SDK so you have to cut and paste and such. Sounds like a real pain...
