Multi-Touch Swipe Gestures for iPhone Keyboard

U.S. Patent Office has revealed this interesting new patent application from Apple called Swipe Gestures for Touch Screen Keyboards.


Some movements outlined in the application include a left swipe for deletion of characters, right swipes for a space, and a swipe down in place of the return key.

Of course, these types of gestures are nothing new – Microsoft has had a similar (albeit stylus-based) concept in WinMo for years.

Like with Apple’s multi-touch notebook trackpads, these optional functions could provide advanced users with many useful shortcuts while not steepening the learning curve for novice users.

And you never know it might even open the door for copy and paste on the iPhone 🙂
