A couple of months ago I mentioned an open source component called ZRYWordPicker allowing you to add a list of selectable words above the keyboard.

Here’s a component called JustType from Alexander Conglin that provides a number of enhancements to aid the user when typing.

Like some previously mentioned projects JustType adds a listing of word suggestions to the user that sit above the keyboard when typing however JustType uses iOS’ default syntax checker (so this will work with multiple languages) and adds a button for easy capitalization of suggestions.

JustType also adds the ability to quick move through text with the cursor using a swiping gesture that moves the cursor quicker the wider the swipe.

Here’s a video showing JustType in action:

You can find JustType on Github here. and you can read more about Justype on Alexander’s blog.

A nice library for enhancing the keyboard.
