  • Quick Keyboard Việt also supports swipe selection, it's good
  • The popular "Multiling Keyboard" handles this a bit differently, it employs an anternative way which use vol buttons for moving back and forth. The plus is supporting all languages.

hi just wondering with Quick Keyboard Việt how did u move the cursor for me it goes from the first word to the last word i cant move it through individual characters

As far as I can tell, the only functionality is to move the cursor, you can't select text like in the iOS tweak. It's not as smooth, but it at least allows you to still maintain all the functionality of the default keyboard while adding an ability to move the cursor.

This feature may only be available on the Galaxy S5, I'm not sure if it's available on the SwiftKey keyboard (which the samsung keyboard is based on).

works on my galaxy note 4 thanks.

the ios version is still better tho.
