[Jailbreak] Octopus Keyboard To Bring Blackberry 10 Style Keyboard To iPhone

If you’ve jailbroken your iPhone and for one reason or another are wishing you had a Blackberry-style keyboard, you are in luck!

An upcoming tweak will bring a Blackberry 10 styled keyboard to your iPhone. The tweak is called “Octopus Keyboard” and will feature the similar gesture-based predictive typing found on RIM’s latest OS.

Take a look at the video for a walkthrough:

The tweak is still early in development but the current features are:

– Automatically learns new words as you type them
– Custom completion engine
– Should work for any input language with key input (English, French, Czech, Russian, etc.)

As the tweak develops, some future features are:

– Avoid learning mistakes
– Autocapitalize words in sentences
– Handle , . ! etc at the end of a sentence
– Better handling and display of longer words
– Compatibility with popular tweaks like SwipeSelection

So if you want a Blackberry-style keyboard for your iPhone, check out this tweak on May 20 in Cydia. Note that it is unknown at this time whether the tweak will be free or not.

    I’m not sure what your point is … This is a jailbreak tweak thus no connection to Apple in the slightest.
