    It doesn't work in Safari or Atomic web browser for me, pretty much useless if all it works in is iBooks and Notes. It also stops the shortcut keys from working too i.e. Some keys have extra functions assigned to them if you hold and slide up from that key, so vertical sliding needs to be ignored so as to not break default keyboard functionality. So vertical navigation is going to be a no no, unless its made optional in a settings GUI.

    EDIT: There has been an update for this tweak now that fixes the hidden key slide shortcuts I mentioned above. The tweak still doesn't work system wide though, Safari and Atomic for example still do not have slide selection.

    I can't get it work with kbshortcut quick text function which is essential for me. one major problem is that once you start to drag, it keeps holding that key and type that key where you stop. kinda annoy when you have to delete that letter again.

    You do realise that iOS5 has keyboard macros/shortcuts built into it dont you?

    Settings> General> Keyboard> Shortcuts.

    Not true. Sliding upward on a key currently does nothing. To use accents you press and hold on a key (without moving) until there is a pop-up, then slide along that pop-up to pick the correct character. This in no way would interfere with a vertical scrolling implementation anymore than it currently interferes with the horizontal sliding; as long as you start scrolling any direction right away, the accent pop-up won't appear.

    And yes, I saw your edit. This was just for clarification.

    I noticed the not working in safari but it does work in atomic web browser... I use browser changer and set it for atomic and no issues.

    Love the concept, and it worked well for me, but I found that when typing a little fast it missed half the characters. Had to uninstall.

    This Tweak is ridiculously obvious- just used the tweak to edit this post with sublime aese...er... ease. Tweak of the month!

    My only feedback is that for essay length text vertical positing would be nice- then again a quick tap on the desired line then shift and gesture works just as well.

    Weird. Try reinstalling maybe... I have it workin with atomic on my iPhone 4 and iPad 2 both on 5.0.1. Are you using the paid or free version of atomic?

    5.01, Paid version, iPad 2.

    I'll maybe try reinstalling Atomic later this evening, too busy at the moment catching up reading forum posts for the beta of Project CARS.

    I liked it, but ran into a big problem. Apparently, I must not lift my fingers very high off the screen when typing and it was causing the cursor to move backwards and was screwing up what I was typing. Good concept, but I've been typing this way since the original iPhone and I can't change that now.

    Good job with such a useful tweak. I can't believe it's free.
    I'd pay for an upgrade that works in safari.
