Compatible with iOS6!
Not compatible with iOS7 or higher!
If you want similar functionality on iOS8+, check out the wonderful Crimson Keyboard (released on the AppStore) which works similarly and uses the same prediction engine. It uses the new iOS8 keyboard API and is NOT developed by me.
This tweak is now open-sourced and developed by the community!
Predictive keyboard add-on showing word suggestions above individual keys.
Swiping up over a key completes the word.
For rocket-fast typing on your iOS keyboard!
