SMS+ Is An Amazing Alternate To BiteSMS For iPhone

by Achint Maniar on February 4, 2012

Apart from the native stock application for messages there are many applications available on Cydia which are awesome alternatives for your iPhone.  Today we will be talking about a similar alternative application for messaging for your iPhone. According to me, BiteSMS is the best application for messaging but since we are talking about another application similar to biteSMS, its called as SMS+

SMS+ is a Cydia tweak or rather application for your iPhone that overhauls the iOS’ stock Messages application. SMS+ allows you to quick-reply to an incoming SMS message without leaving the app you’re using, or even show up via an Activator gesture. It creates a new window where you can compose a new text message, choosing the number from your existing contacts. It is extremely similar to BiteSMS.

SMS+ also includes a “Later” feature, which you can use to keep a message unread to read it later. You may also choose to make your iPhone “Voice-read” an incoming text message to you, this is one feature that is not available in BiteSMS and should have been there. To top it off, SMS+ adds in a few more extra options right inside the stock Messages application such as ‘Mark All messages as Read’, ‘Delete All Messages’, ‘Timestamp Every Message’, and ‘Show/Hide Conversations’. These features definitely give it an upper hand in the battle against BiteSMS but still there are many features in BiteSMS which this does not incorporate.

While SMS+ packs in a lot of features, a few of them have been available for some time now with various, earlier tweaks that are already available in Cydia most notably, the “quick-reply” feature.

This application is available for $1.99 in the big boss repo.

There are no new icons added to your SpringBoard, and settings can be configured from your main Settings.app.

To download this tweak for free:

  1. Open Cydia on your jailbroken iphone.
  2. Once the data is loaded, go to search and type in “SBphoto”
  3. It’s free in the xSellize, IHR and insanelyi repo.
  4. Select it and install it.
  5. Respring or reboot your device.
  6. You are done to use it.

If you know any other tweaks similar to this one or any other tweak which you might think would be useful to iphone users please let us know.

Is SMS+ compatible with iMessage or will it send all messages as normal text messages?

I love this app, the text-to-speech is fantastic for the car, and the QuickCompose feature is second to none. My only disappointment is that at the time of this comment, SMS+ does not integrate with iMessage. I have difficulty having a fluid conversation, as my SMS replies will lag or disjoint from iMessage system, meaning I can open my conversation and not see my text message appear for a minute or two, slowing down the conversation, and then when the person replies (via iMessage if they are an iPhone user) it doesn’t appear as a SMS+ popup.

yes you can, just turn off the notifications for normal messages via notification tab in settings.

Does anyone know if the SMS+ is compatible with an iPhone 4 5.1.1? I downloaded the app and turned on the features under the settings but the quick reply, etc were not working. Help please!
