The iPhone’s space bar never does a bad job of putting a space between words (at least usually), but it could definitely do with some extra functionality. A new jailbreak tweak called Space+ by iOS developer iAmHaric promises to improve the functionality of the iPhone’s space bar by making it do many of the things it can do on your PC or Mac.

You might be wondering what kinds of features we are referring to. Space+ makes it so you can hold down on the space bar to insert multiple spaces and move sentences multiple spaces. Usually, this can only be done by repeatedly tapping on the space bar or using Copy and Paste, which involves several more steps than preferred. Attempting to hold down on the space bar without having Space+ installed will just result in one single space and nothing more.

The developer has put together a short video demonstrating some of the things Spaces+ will let you do:

Spaces+ will be the most useful for those that use their iOS devices for word processing or text editing. The tweak is compatible with both iOS 5 and iOS 6, so if you're interested in giving it a try, you can download it from Cydia's BigBoss repository in Cydia for just 99˘.
