Text Editing On The iPad Just Got A Lot Easier For Jailbreakers

Text Editing On The iPad Just Got A Lot Easier For Jailbreakers

Typing on the iPad has never been something I was particularly fond of. Having to go back and forth between the keyboard and the text you’re writing is nowhere near as fast or efficient as using a physical keyboard and shortcuts.

So for most iPhone users it’s a no-brainer to set up a 4 digit passcode to keep thieves from gaining access to your phone.

But what if you’re in a trusted area like your home or office? Should you still be required to enter your passcode even though theft is unlikely? Of course, that’s up to you, but if you’re sick of entering your passcode in the confines of your home, a jailbreak tweak called CleverPin attempts to remedy that inconvenience. Continue reading →
