    Hey guys. My friend is begging me to find him "Swype" for iPhone. Now I think I understand what it is and all.
    And there is an app apparantly where you can type in your message with "Swype", but then you have to copy and paste that message into your text/Safari/whatever....
    So my question is, is there an actual Swype keyboard type thing for the iPhone? He has a 4G Jailbroken, not sure the FW but I'm guessing 4G can only be 4.1?

    It's called "ShapeWriter" or "Shape Writer" (forgot which one). Search it on the iTunes App Store. Use the free version, I think there's also a paid version too. I remember using it, but then ended up going back to the ol' keyboard. It's a good app though. Worth a try too.

    yeah tinyman thats what it was, but you have to copy and paste everything which is just a waste anyway.... we need an actual jailbreak app

    It's ShapeWriter, but its a standalone app, not a full iOS keyboard.

    And the iPhone 4 can only either be a 4.0 or 4.0.1. 4.0.2 isn't jailbreakable and 4.1 isn't out ATM.

    Ah. Sorry I haven't been up on the entire OS4 business for reasons I cant explain, and I know about shapewriter as I said in the last post, im wondering if anything is done like that for an actual keyboard... thats my question.

    There currently isn't anything available besides ShapeWriter. It probably won't come either, ShapeWriter is licensed and people trying to reproduce it can get sued.

    well isnt shapewriter trying to reproduce Swype? Swype makers should sue them in that case.
