ShowCase is a nice little hack that changes the stock keyboard to display the current character case of the letters. Normally, the letters on the keyboard are always displayed as uppercase no matter if you have have the “Shift” key selected or not. With this hack, when the “Shift” key is selected, the characters on the keyboard will display as uppercase letters however if the “Shift” key is not selected, the characters on the keyboard will display as lowercase letters.
When I saw this hack in Cydia… I was like… dude, I could totally use that. So I gave it a shot. But, not gonna lie, it tripped me out a little. After using an iPhone for four years I’m not used to the keyboard characters switching before my eyes. However, I actually really like this hack. There are times, like when I’m typing in passwords, when it is nice to just look down at the keyboard and know if I’m about to type a uppercase or a lowercase letter. I will be keeping this hack around for awhile.
When you install ShowCase, it does not add an icon to your SpringBoard or add any settings in the stock Settings application. It is activated as soon as you install it in Cydia. To get rid of the hack, you would either need to uninstall it or use the Mobile Substrate Addons option in SBSettings. It would be nice to at least see the ability to activate/deactivate the app without having to install/uninstall it. Maybe we will get that option in an update. You can get ShowCase in Cydia via the BigBoss source.
