Remember that video a while back, the one where you could swipe along the keyboard on an iPad to select text — everyone drooled over it, and it was made for jailbroken devices? Yeah, remember that?

Version 3.2 of WriteUp now has that. Pretty neat stuff.

I don’t use WriteUp regularly, but I just checked out this feature and now I want it for the rest of iOS. It works and it works really well. I don’t know the ramifications of it if you are a fast typist — that is, will it move the cursor accidentally because you type fast? I don’t know, but just moving around the cursor like this is magical.

If you are an iOS dev that has an app where users write chunks of text, you really need to consider this addition.
