The Ignition jailbreak tweak lets you run CarPlay on your iPad. This is very helpful for those developers who might now wish to pay $700 for a Pioneer CarPlay system. You can test on an iPad. However playing with it I found that it was actually helpful for driving in your car. There are subtle differences that do make the experience better. I’m not sure it’s worth jailbreaking your iPad for, but it is something to check out. (If only to find out what the limits of CarPlay are)
One of the things many people were excited about with iOS was 3rd party keyboards. While I think this will lead to more innovation the fact is the iOS8 keyboard is pretty fantastic on its own. Far better than any of the the 3rd party keyboards I’ve played with on Android.
I have to confess that one of the few reasons I still jailbreak is for SwipeSelection, a nice little addition that gives you cursor control via swiping. At WWDC I was really excited that this feature could be part of an unjailbroke system. There’s a bit of sad news though. I Love Swift had a good post on writing a keyboard that had a nice summary of the limits of third party keyboards.
