Octopus keyboard review
Well, this tweak has been out for a couple days now and I love it. It makes typing alot easier and that's important on your iDevice. It still needs some work, such as ability to use auto correct but the keyboard actually makes you type more accuratly. If anyone is already using this or used a beta version or if you're considering purchasing this tweak then please post here with any comments or questions.

I have really enjoyed this tweak and in its first iteration, it works extremely well!
I think I have adapted very quickly to the new style, but I cant say it significantly increases my speed. With a few of the quirks ironed out I think I'll be able to retract my statement though!

i re-jailbroke just for this app and right now i'm very frustrated because it doesn't work at all. when i installed it yesterday it worked for maybe 5 minutes and no matter how many times i respring or reinstall it the keyboard does not work when i swipe the words. has anyone else had this issue?
i did put a 3M privacy screen on the phone yesterday but it still worked after i did that at first. i dunno....thoughts??? i'm touching the words and swiping up but all i get is the first letter of the word itself.

i actually never have auto-correct on but i did uninstall it and reinstall it and so far its ok, but as i noticed yesterday it definitely drags down the CPU or something because it's very slow to respond and don't even think about typing fast because the phone can't keep up. i've noticed some increased battery drain too since i rejailbroke and all i have is SBSettings and Octopus....

I am really impressed with this tweak actually! Maybe its because I have a 4S, but there is virtually no slowdown for me. Almost beating the learning curve now.
As far as looking pretty goes though, it fails.
I would give the functionality a 7/10 (which I only expect to improve) and I would give it a 2/10 for feeling like it belongs with the OS (not sure if that is possible to improve.. Maybe somebody should make a BB10-esque ColorKeyboard with thicker gaps )

tyler, i definitely wouldn't expect you to see any lag with a dual core processor. maybe the issue is me. i'm planning on restoring my phone saturday and re-jailbreaking due to other constant issues i have with the stock OS. maybe that will resolve my problem.

I have had this keyboard for a week now, there are some defects like when type too fast it tends to replace with the wrong words... Like if you type "comp" if youbwere typing competition for some reason you get "could". Hopefully it will improve
